2014 Dove Management Fields and Maps
All 5 designated dove management areas described below will require NON-TOXIC SHOT for the 2014 dove season. This includes all areas within ¼ mile of managed fields. If hunters choose to hunt other locations on the WA not specifically managed for doves, non-toxic shot will not be required. All managed dove areas will have mowed parking areas and mowed walking trails to the fields.
County Line Fields- 3 miles east of Downs and south of highway 24. One 30 acre sunflower field near the south parking lot and one 5 acre wheat field just east of the sunflowers.
Cawker City Fields- 1 mile south/ southwest of Cawker City just south of the old airport location. One 16 acre sunflower field and one 5 acre wheat field to the NW of sunflowers. This FIELD WILL BE RESERVED ON THE MORNING OF SEPTEMBER 1 FOR OUR YOUTH DOVE HUNT. At noon on Sept. 1 the field will open to Youth and Mentor Hunting until Sept. 7. During this time, adults may only hunt the field if they have a youth 17 or younger hunting with them. On Sept. 9 the field will be open to all hunters for the remainder of the season.
