MISSOURI — The first day for Missouri dove season is September 1st. Mourning doves, Eurasian collared doves, and white-winged doves can be harvested from September 1, through November 29, 2016. The Missouri Department of Conservation notes doves must be taken from one half hour before sunrise to sunset. The daily limit is 15, and the combined possession limit of 45 for all three species. This year the MDC is allowing hunters 20 more days to hunt doves.
“MDC reminds dove hunters of its more than 180 conservation areas around the state that allow dove hunting, including nearly 100 planted in crop fields that attract the popular game birds. Crops include sunflower, corn, millet, wheat, and buckwheat.”
