STATE HUNTING SEASON FOR MOURNING DOVE ENDS JANUARY 17

HONOLULU – The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW) announces a shorter hunting season for the mourning dove (Zenaida macroura) in the State of Hawaii. To comply with federal mandates, including the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and to meet current state regulations, the last day for hunting mourning dove is now January 17, 2018.

The fall game bird hunting season for all other game birds will remain unchanged and will run through Sunday, January 28, 2018. A valid hunting license and a game bird stamp are required for all game bird hunting on public and private lands. All game bird hunting is regulated by chapter 13-122, Hawaii Administrative Rules

(see http://hawaii.gov/dlnr/dofaw “Administrative Rules” for all legal hunting days).
