Default Utah Dove Hunting

Any input on where there are leases (day or season) for this coming Dove season? Free hunting would be great also. I moved here from Texas 4.5 years ago, and I miss my September dove hunts.

Thanks,

By the time the hunt starts there won't be...

At least we can hunt the ECD's year round. Anyone try a blow gun on one of them? Sounds interesting.

South Utah county has plenty of birds. I never travel further than 10 miles and limit out almost every outing

If a storm doesnt push them out the day before the hunt starts.... look for some sunflowers and you should get some shootin in

It seems like every year people complain on here about the storms pushing the doves out in late August. I'm betting it won't be long until another thread like that pops up. But people still do pretty good. Like Bax said, find some sunflowers and grain fields. Public property can get packed, but you can still find a few birds.

Any names of property owners to lease property for hunting? Any specific locations to inquire about? Dove leases are big in TX..

IMHO I'd rather not see Utah go the way of Texas with the leases for hunting doves. Currently there are plenty of places out there where you can find doves on public ground, WMA's or WIA. There are still landowners willing to let you hunt doves around as well. However there wont be for long if the idea that we will pay to lease their property gets out. It used to be that gaining access to a good field to hunt geese was not so difficult here. Not the case anymore. People have leased up every field that a goose will even look at cross eyed. It would totally suck if that happened to the dove hunt. That said dont expect to see doves like you saw them in Texas. We have a few. Enough for many people to scratch out a limit but nothing like the limitless shooting you can see in Texas. At least not in my experience.

Tigerpincer...I think you are correct but a little off. Hunting doves (or anything) on private land is going away but not because of the almighty dollar. Believe me nobody is getting rich off selling a few trespass permits. The private property hunting is going to start costing or be unavailable due to the abuse of trespassers and just basic disrespect of property.

Please remember, pick up your shells. Pick up all litter. Ask for permission. If a gate is open leave it open, if it is shut leave it shut. Leave the property better than you found it. Never cut a fence, drive only on roads...etc. Remember, you are a guest and you have no right to the private property. Treat it as so and hope that the invitation is extended for the coming years.
