Three Fields Added To Dove Hunt Lineup

LITTLE ROCK – Hunters looking for a private-land dove hunt this season will find their opportunities enhanced by an additional three locations and 82 more permits available each weekend in September through the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission’s drawn permit hunt system.

The AGFC has lined up the same field it has had for two years, near the community of Blakemore between England and Lonoke on Arkansas Highway 31. But it has added fields near Slovak (Prairie County), Siloam Springs (Benton County) and Lincoln (Washington County) to offer more private-land permit dove hunts when the season opens Sunday, Sept. 2.

“We had over 1,100 applicants for that one field last year,” Garrick Dugger, assistant chief of the AGFC’s Wildlife Management Division, said of the Blakemore field. “In response to that, and knowing that a number of people from all around Arkansas are looking for a private-lands hunt, we’re responding to the demand.     MORE
