2013 Dove Management Area at Jamestown Wildlife Area
Sunflowers sprouted very late due to the drought and dove use should improve throughout the season as the plants ripen. Two unharvested wheat fields will be manipulated prior to opening day.
Doves are also attracted to the shallow water areas found on the area.

Field #3 – 15 acre sunflower field – From the intersection of K-28, Vale Rd. and 20 Rd., one mile north to the Greenwing Marsh Parking lot. The field is located directly west of the parking lot. Open to all hunters for the entire season.
Mandatory Daily Hunter Survey permits are required and are available at the Information Centers.
