Managed Dove Fields for 2019

     Unfortunately, wet weather conditions have prevented the planting of sunflower fields in Fall River Wildlife Area for the purpose of September dove hunting. Timing is critical in order for sunflowers to have time to reach maturity, dry down, and begin attracting doves in advance of the opening day of dove season. When these prerequisites are not met, doves will tend to move on to other areas along their migration route.
