Outdoors: Dove season set to open

The 2001 Nevada mourning dove hunting season will open on Sept. 1.

The dove limit is 10 daily and 20 in possession.

This season will close on Sept. 30.

-- Note: Hunters are reminded that because the dove is a migratory bird and comes under federal regulations, shotguns must be plugged to limit the overall shotgun capacity to three shells.

-- Note: Hunters are reminded that they will need to obtain a Harvest Information Program validation number by calling (800) WETLAND to be able to hunt migratory bird species.

For information, call the Nevada Division of Wildlife at 688-1500 during business hours.
