Ohio Mourning Dove Season is now open from Sept. 1st, 2007 through Oct. 15th, 2007.

Also, Canadian Goose, Teal, Common Snipe, Rail, and Moorhen season opens Sept. 1st, 2007

Go here for more info:

http://www.ohiodnr.com/wildlife/dow/regulations/PDF/pub298.pdf   

I didn't go to the link, but I have two questions.

1- Does the dove season start at 12 noon of the opening day?

2- Why is this?

WV dove season opens 12 noon on opening day. I can't seem to find out the reasoning on this.

#1.....No.   #2.....I have no idea as to why, maybe someone will chime in and enlighten us?     Here it is, word for word................

DIVISION OF WILDLIFE
Ohio Department of Natural Resources
MIGRATORY GAME BIRD
HUNTING SEASONS, 2007
DAILY HUNTING HOURS ARE SUNRISE TO SUNSET

.....Hours for dove hunting are sunrise to sunset, except for those wildlife areas which have been posted with special regulations.


Although.................

The Division of Wildlife is planning to operate controlled dove
hunts at Fallsville, Rush Run Spring Valley, Indian Creek, Bott
wildlife areas, St. Marys Fish Hatchery, and Cowan Lake State
Park. These controlled hunts will occur during the first 3 days of
the season (Saturday , September 1st ‑ Monday, September 3rd);
hunting hours will be noon to sunset.

yep that's what it says in the pdf file.

Makes sense. Doves become so docile in the off season. They're giving them a chance to become more spooked I guess. After that...it'll be like trying to shoot down stunt planes. LOL

Maybe so, I have hundreds of Doves here. I think that they are more of the resident type then being MIGRATORY, just like the Canidian Geese that take up residency and never leave.

I have had Doves nesting in my barn all spring long and in the pine tree next to my house, along side of the driveway. You can walk under the nest and they just stay there and can't be bothered to fly away in fear of their lives.

Those geese should be open season just like a coyote or groundhogs (No closed season for hunting or trapping .......No Limit). :eek:  Especially in light of the "sky is falling" avian flu scare.  For over 40 years, the only geese I ever saw in my area where just passing through, it was very rare to see any, therefore it was a treat. Within the last 3-4 years there are thousands that have taken up resident at all the local lakes and rivers. They have completely closed 2 beaches because of the sacred migratory geese that never leave.
