Dove hunting interest on rise
Hunter interest remains high, heading into Iowa’s third mourning dove season. The 70-day season opens Sept. 1, with birds now pouring into Iowa on their southward migration.
Migrating birds are noticed in the early days of August, building through the late summer. The number of hunters should edge upward, too.
“I expect a little bump up in hunter numbers again, as more of them learn about dove hunting. A few more friends will come along,” predicts DNR upland research biologist Todd Bogenschutz.
