Special Dove Hunting Opportunities for Youth on WMAs

Posted August 1, 2015 By NewsEngine

JACKSON – In Mississippi, fall officially begins with fast-action dove hunts on warm September afternoons. Dove hunting is an excellent opportunity to introduce youth to hunting and shooting sports. The social atmosphere of dove hunting also introduces youth to the experience of the hunting camp tradition and creates special memories with family and friends. The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) is providing unique hunting opportunities for youth on our Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs). This year there will be two youth dove hunts held on Black Prairie and Mahannah WMAs.

The Black Prairie youth dove hunt will be held on September 7, 2015, and the Mahannah youth dove hunt will be held on September 12, 2015. These hunts are open to all youth hunters 15 years of age and younger.
