Thomsaville - Currently there are 15 different dove seasons in Georgia in different zones of the state. The new season may benefit Southern plantation owners, but hurt business at North Georgia plantations.

Lee Collins of Canebrake Plantations says, "The Southern zone is going to benefit because we get to keep hunters here. Northern hunters are going to decline because the Southern zone hunters don't have to go North to participate in their two extra weeks they have before us."

The three periods will be: from sunrise Labor Day to sunset on the second Saturday in September, from sunrise the first Saturday in October to sunset on the second Saturday in October and from sunrise on Thanksgiving to sunset on Jan. 15.
