Single dove season discussed

May 18, 2004

 Albany-- South Georgia hunters will meet Wednesday night into learn about proposed changes for dove hunting. Lawmakers have proposed doing away with the northern and southern zone dove hunting seasons to adopt one single statewide season.

The proposed season is controversial, because it would end January 15th, cutting off some of the more popular days at the end of January. "A cooler time. There is late season migratory birds in the state at that time that folks like to hunt," said Sr. Wildlife Biologist Julie Robbins.

The public hearing will give hunters a chance to voice their feelings on dove season. The hearing begins at 7:00 Wednesday night at Darton College's C-Building.
