Apply for Mentor-Youth Dove Hunts Beginning Today
Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife
Frankfort, KY - Free registration to participate in Kentucky's quota mentor-youth dove hunts opens today. Hunters have until 4:30pmET on Aug. 16 to apply for a hunt.
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources offers these hunts to allow adults to provide kids with a quality dove hunting experience. Participation is limited to avoid crowding of fields. Adult hunters can take up to two youths under the age of 16.
Dove season opens statewide Sept. 1, 2019.
"People have two weeks to apply," Migratory Bird Program Coordinator John Brunjes said. "Mentors must go online and complete the registration. Then, they can go back to the website by Aug. 23 to see if they were drawn for the mentor hunt."
Kentucky will offer four mentor-youth dove hunting fields this season in Ballard, Union, Lincoln and Grant counties. Statewide, Kentucky has 40 fields open for public dove hunting.
Hunters can find dove field locations, maps and online applications at fw.ky.gov, the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife website. A new regulation effective this year prohibits hunters from entering fields for public dove hunting from Aug. 15 until sunrise, Sept. 1. Hunters may still park nearby to scout fields at a distance.
Information about regulations governing dove and migratory bird hunting is available online at fw.ky.gov by searching under the keyword, "dove."
