Schedule Released for 2004 STEP OUTSIDE Youth Dove Hunts
August 12, 2004
Do you know a young person who would like to be introduced to hunting? Dove hunters throughout the state have a special opportunity to introduce a young person to hunting through STEP OUTSIDE youth dove hunts sponsored by the Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. In cooperation with landowners, local volunteers, businesses and organizations, these dove hunts are scheduled at 32 sites in 30 counties throughout the state. Young hunters must be less than 16 years old and accompanied by an adult at least 25 years old or their parent, with a valid state hunting license and a Harvest Information Program (H.I.P.) stamp. All are encouraged to wear eye protection and ear plugs.
Pre-registration is necessary for all hunts. Consult the list of hunt dates and sites for contact information. When you pre-register you will receive directions to the field, start time, and other pertinent information. Before each hunt there will be a short welcome session with reminders of hunting safety precautions. Dove hunting will begin immediately afterwards.
Youth dove hunts provide ideal opportunities to participate in the Hunt Outdoor Alabama campaign.
For additional information, contact the Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries District Office in your area or call 1-800-262-3151.
