If you’re a dove hunter, you’ve no doubt had the first day of September circled on your calendar for a long time.
Well, that day is almost here.
Once again, Arizona’s skies are expected to be filled with endless flights of mourning and white-winged doves when the season gets underway Sept. 1. And, once again, the largest numbers of birds will be found where there are agricultural crops like millet, sorghum and sunflower.
If you’re looking for a hotspot, look no further than “The Dove Hunting Capital of the United States.” In fact, many hunters boast that the Yuma area offers some of the finest wing-shooting action “north of Argentina,” often called the best dove-hunting locale in the world.
