Dove Field Forecast & Hunting Locations

Forecast updated: 10/11/18 10:03 a.m.

Biologists with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division have issued the 2018 dove field forecast covering wildlife management areas and additional dove fields throughout the state.

The forecast identifies available crops and anticipates the expected conditions for opening day, noting if fields are in good, poor or fair condition. Hunters can utilize this online resource as they plan opening day activities. Please call the Game Management Section regional office for up-to-date conditions.

Quota Hunts

Many fields listed are available during quota hunts only. Apply for dove field quota hunts through the Go Outdoors Georgia system (deadline to apply is August 15).

Some properties are privately owned but made available through a program called the Voluntary Public Access (VPA)/Habitat Incentive Program.
