CORPUS CHRISTI TEXAS (KVUE) - Hunters are preparing for the start of the annual dove season, which starts Thursday in the north and central zones of Texas.
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department states on their regulations page for doves that the first part of the season runs Sept. 1 – Nov. 13 in the north zone, and Sept. 1 – Nov. 6 in the central zone. The daily bag limit for the state’s zones are set at 15 birds, with no more than two white-tips.
All hunters are required to have a migratory game bird endorsement on their valid hunting license, which costs $7 on top of the cost of a license. The cost for a hunting license varies.
