Dove hunting season starts today

It’s shaping up to be a fantastic season. Dove populations are thriving this year thanks to spring rains. States to our north had similar spring conditions, which should result in strong numbers of additional birds migrating to Texas later this season. Get ready to hunt some dove!

Below are the regular seasons for each zone. The daily limit is 15 birds, with no more than two white-tipped doves. Shooting hours are 30 minutes before sunrise until sunset. Check the Outdoor Annual for all regulation information.

• North Zone: 9/1 to 11/12 and 12/20 to 1/5
