Rules & Regulations | Dove Hunting (1236 words)
It is not a normal agricultural operation to seed the same field repeatedly, to concentrate wheat in long rows, or to pile wheat on the field.
If a large concentration of doves is present and the field is freshly plowed, look closely at the soil for grain that is not part of a normal agricultural operation, such as grain not grown in the field, grain not evenly distributed, or the presence of other attractive material.
Doves may be taken only with a shotgun, and the shotgun must be incapable of holding more than three shells in the magazine and chamber combined.
