Hunt to take place weekend following Labor Day 

TOPEKA – What better way for kiddos to gain hunting dove hunting experience than to embark on a guided hunt over managed sunflower and wheat fields? The Westar Energy Green Team is hosting its annual youth dove hunt the second weekend of September to kick off dove season, and area youth are invited. The hunts will be conducted at Jeffrey Energy Center, near St. Marys, September 6-7 and are open to youth 16 and younger. Hunters will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.  To register, call Barb Cornelius at (785) 575-8125 by Friday, Aug. 29.

Hunts will take place in the early morning or late afternoon. Hunters are asked to bring their own shotguns and be accompanied by a non-hunting adult. Hunters age 16 must also have a Kansas hunting license and Harvest Information Program (HIP) permit. Non-toxic shells will be provided.
