Applications accepted for Dove Hunt

Mourning dove hunters who wish to participate in a controlled hunt at South Branch Wildlife Management Area in Hardy County must apply by midnight on July 30.

Hunting mourning doves is by permit only on September 1, 2 and 4. Hunters will be randomly selected by drawing, and assigned a day to hunt and a shooting station for one day, free of charge. They can have two guests. No permits will be necessary to hunt doves after September 4.

Hunters can register through DNR’s electronic license system and apply online.

Hunters may also apply by calling the District 2 Headquarters at 304-822- 3551.

For season dates and additional information, consult the 2017-18 West Virginia Migratory Bird Hunting Regulations. Migratory bird regulations will be available at DNR offices by early August and will be posted on the WVDNR website.
