Dove hunting season to close on Sept. 30

The 2005 Nevada mourning and white-wing dove hunting season will close, statewide, on Sept. 30.

The limit is 10 daily and 20 in possession.

Open to non-residents.

Shooting hours are one half hour before sunrise to sunset daily.

Special Note No. 1: White-wing dove season is closed in all counties except Clark and Nye Counties.

Special Note. No. 2: 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.

Special Note No. 3: All hunters, 12 years and older, are also reminded that they will need to obtain a Harvest Information Program (HIP) validation number by either calling 866-703-4605 or going to website to be able to hunt migratory bird species. That validation number is free.

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