Safety Tips as Dove Hunting Season Starts Satuday

Dove hunting season begins Saturday (September 2) throughout the state and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) along with the International Hunter Education Association-USA (IHEA-USA) wants to remind hunters to be aware of their safe zones of fire.

  • For safety purposes, it is best to hunt in groups of three or less.
  • Hunters should be spaced 24 to 40 yards apart. Each hunter has a safe zone that spans roughly 45 degrees directly in front of each hunter.
  • If a dove flies behind the line of hunters, it is best that hunters do not fire.
  • No hunter should ever point a firearm at another hunter when swinging on a dove.
