    Kansas dove hunting at its best, we hunt doves morning and evening. Most of our hunts are on ponds and feed fields. We incorporate Mojo decoys with our static decoys for maximum results. There is nothing better than hot dove action and a pile of spent shells to get you primed for the start of a long hunting season. Let the fun begin!

The dates listed are the portion of

Four species of doves are legal to hunt in Kansas: mourning dove, Eurasian collared-dove, ringed turtle-dove, and white-winged dove. Pigeons, also known as rock doves or rock pigeons, are classified as a pest species, not a game species, and can be shot year-round.

Mourning doves are one of the most common bird species in North America.  They are hunted in 39 of the 48 conterminous states and their harvest exceeds that of all other migratory game birds (ducks, geese, swans, cranes, rails, woodcock, and snipe) combined.  Currently, Kansas is participating in a nationwide mourning dove banding study.  Hunters are asked to check their doves for leg bands and if found, report them to the Bird Banding Lab (1-800-327-BAND, or www.pwrc.usgs.gov

Kansas typically has one of the highest breeding indices for mourning doves in the U.S., as measured by the annual Call Count Survey in May.  Mourning does nest in trees, shrubs, and on the ground in crop fields and grasslands.  A mourning dove pair can produce up to 3-4 broods of two young per year in Kansas.

In addition to the regular dove season, Kansas has a season for non-native Eurasian collared and ringed turtle doves. This season runs Nov. 20-Feb. 28. Four species of doves -- mourning, white-winged, Eurasian-collared, and ringed-turtle -- are legal to hunt in Kansas during the regular seasons; however, mourning doves are the only commonly-harvested dove species in the state and the only ones being banded.
