Special Regulations Now in Effect on the Food Plots.

The food plots will now be non-toxic shot only. To hunt opening day of dove season hunters must put in and be selected by drawing for a special hunt (located on the website under special hunts). Hunters may put in for a morning or afternoon hunt and if selected will be able to bring one individual with them. This will limit the number of hunters for the morning and afternoon hunts to 20 individuals per time slot. Hunters will still need to sign in to the area by going here, using your licensing login credentials. After the opening day of dove season, normal hunting will resume, however hunters must still check-in / check-out to be on the area.

Area dove fields are fair to good this year. The sunflowers were 1/2 mowed last week to attract doves and the other half will be mowed down the week before season. Wheat fields were fair to moderate this year and have been sprayed to try to knock back a late growth of foxtail and will be burned the week before season. Dove numbers have been increasing in the last few weeks and 50+ doves were seen while mowing sunflower fields last week. 

Mulberry Creek is flowing again and has sunfish in some of the pools.
