LITTLE ROCK, AR (News Release) – The fall hunting season unofficially gets underway on Sept. 6 when the first segment of Arkansas’s dove season begins. Due to federal guidelines, the early migratory bird season cannot begin earlier than Sept. 1.

In order to provide an opening full-weekend hunt, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission approved the Sept. 6 opening date rather than a Monday only hunt during the Labor Day weekend.

Dove season dates:
Mourning dove and Eurasian collared-dove
Sept. 6-Oct. 25 and Dec. 20-Jan. 8
