Enforcement agents with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries were busy last weekend during the opening days of the 2018 dove season, writing 39 citation to 29 hunters for baiting doves and other related offenses.
The first split of Louisiana’s 2018-19 dove season will open Sept. 1 in both north and south zones. The north zone’s first split will run through Sept. 23. Subsequent splits are Oct. 6 – Nov. 11 and Dec. 16 – Jan. 14. In the south zone, the first split ends on Sept. 9. The second split dates are Oct. 6 – Nov. 25, and final split is Dec. 16 – Jan. 14.
Sportsman TV host Greg Hackney is never at a loss for words, but his co-host this week was: Sue Bob, a top-notch squirrel dog, just kept her nose on the ground and tracked down bushy tails for tonight’s brand new episode.
While any day spent squirrel hunting in January and February is better than one spent at work or at home, some are definitely better than others according to veteran hunters Joe Shumaker and Terry Fletcher.
