Dove prospects look bright for season opener

AUSTIN — Though Hurricane Harvey caused a significant drop in dove hunter effort and harvest numbers last year, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department expects the 2018-19 season to be back to normal.

In Texas terms, normal means exceptional.

Opening day of dove hunting is Saturday, Sept. 1 statewide.

For the third consecutive year, Texas dove hunters can look forward to a liberal 90-day season and 15-bird daily bag limits.
