2015 Dove Management Fields and Maps
All 5 designated dove management areas described below require NON-TOXIC SHOT for the 2015 DOVE SEASON. This includes all areas within ¼ mile of managed fields. If hunters choose to hunt other locations on the WA not specifically managed for doves, non-toxic shot is not required. Sunflower fields will have portions of fields mowed leading up to the season. Wheat and millet fields will be burned, mowed, or lightly disked. All managed dove areas will have mowed parking areas and mowed walking trails to the fields.
