Private Land Dove Field Permits Available August 6
Jackson - Hunting permits for Private Land
Dove Fields will be available for purchase beginning at 8:00 a.m.
on August 6, 2012. The Private Land Dove Field Program is a
popular program in which MDWFP biologists work with private
landowners to prepare fields and manage public access on private
lands. In 2012, these private fields will be located in
Alcorn, Tate, Madison, Kemper, Jones, and Lincoln Counties.
These fields were planted to a variety of crops favored by doves,
including sunflowers, millet, and corn. Permits allow hunters
to hunt three days per week (Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday)
during the first two dove seasons. These permits provide an
excellent opportunity to introduce youth to hunting, as each permit
allows up to two youth to hunt with an adult hunter at no
To ensure safety and hunt quality, only a limited
number of permits are available for each field. "It is the MDWFP's
goal to provide a safe, quality hunt for Mississippi's dove
hunters. Since these hunts are administered by MDWFP, hunters
can rest assured that fields have been prepared properly." states
Scott Baker, Dove Field Program Leader.
