Opening day of dove season is one of the most anticipated and
popular hunting days of the year for many Mississippians. Dove
season brings the first hunting opportunity of the fall as the long
and hot Mississippi summer comes to a close. Dove hunting in the
southeast has a long tradition of being a very social event and is
a time for fellowship with friends and family outdoors.
The opening day of dove season is a day not to be missed for
many Mississippi hunters. However, a common complaint of many
hunters is that they simply do not have a place to hunt. Wing
shooters around the state should take a moment to check out the
variety of public dove hunting opportunities provided by the
Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks.
Information on these opportunities can be found using
the links below listed under "Dove Hunting Opportunities".
