Mourning Dove Season Longer; Limits Raised

Many hunters are gearing up for a longer mourning dove season in Idaho. The season begins Monday September 1, and will continue through October 30. The bag limits are increased from 10 mourning doves per day and 30 in possession; to 15 per day, and 45 in possession. There is no season limit on doves.

Idaho Fish and Game has adopted the season recommendation approved by the Pacific Flyway Council and the US Fish and Wildlife Service. The new season structure allows more opportunity, while conserving mourning dove populations and minimizing annual regulatory change.

The Idaho Fish and Game Commission approved the new season structure in Idaho during a July 2014 meeting; six months after the Upland Game Hunting Regulations were 1.
