Biologists with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division have issued the 2020 dove field planting availability covering wildlife management areas and additional dove fields throughout the state. The forecast will identify available crops and anticipates the expected conditions for dove season, noting if fields are in good, poor or fair condition. Hunters can utilize this online resource as they plan. Please call the Game Management Section regional office for up-to-date conditions.
Reminder: Below is the condition of the fields, not a reflection of the number of birds that may or may not be there.
New for 2021 opening day of dove season: Statewide shooting hours – for all of the dove season - are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset.
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.
