Lincoln County Dove Field Ready for Opening Day
Jackson - MDWFP still has some permits available for its Lincoln County dove field.  The 33-acre field, which has been in the MDWFP's Private Lands Dove Field Program for several years, is located southwest of Brookhaven near Bogue Chitto. The field is part of a working cattle farm and will be planted to winter grazing cover, which has produced good dove hunting in the past.  Hay bales will be distributed across the field for hunters to use as cover.
Permit cost is $100 and allows hunting for the first two dove seasons.  To maintain hunt quality, hunting is limited to afternoons only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.  Each permitted adult hunter can bring up to two youths with them at no additional costs with each hunter being allowed to take a limit of doves each day.  Dove Field Coordinator, Scott Baker, states, "The Lincoln County dove field has consistently offered good dove hunting.  With 23 days of hunting opportunity, this is a great opportunity for a hunter or a family of hunters to hunt on a dove field managed by the MDWFP."
