Dove fields below Aux Lake and East of Aux lake have been worked in hopes of controlling problems with cheat and will be planted back to wheat for next years dove fields within the next couple of weeks.

Unit #1 dove fields will not have any special regulations or restrictions, and look good for hunting.

With cooperation from Westar strips have been planted along the edge of selected ag fields to provide year round upland bird habitat.  Despite the windy spring, a good number of burns were completed to enhance grazing activity, grassland health, and benefit wildlife populations.  There are also several summer burns planned to set back woody encroachment and provide crucial upland bird habitat with varying stages of growth.
