Re: dove season

Dove season starts September 1 at noon.
You need a PA migratory bird license, but not a Federal "Duck Stamp".

Here is a link to the announcement on the PGC web site Migratory bird season begins in September

Dove Season is federally mandated hence why you don't see a lot of info in the PGC regs book. It always starts on Sept 1st, or 2nd, depending upon whether the 1st is a Sunday or not.

Geez and when I bought my license back in July and she asked me if I wanted that stamp I asked do I need it for dove, grouse and pheasant or is that just for ducks and geese? She said ducks and geese and I never thought to check for myself. son of a...that's gonna leave a mark.

Re: dove season

You can just go to any place that sells licenses and get it.
It's only a few dollars.

I'd rather be fishing or hunting!

I know but that is not the point I was misinformed and now it will cost more (in fuel) to get the tag. So I have to try to remember to bring my license the next time I am out and try not to forget while I am in the store etc etc.

I know we all make mistakes when we are at work and this mistake was not really bad but it effected me. At least it is not a life or death mistake. Maybe it is, LOL, life for doves!

Re: dove season

Buy it on line and print it out. This shouldn't have come as a surprise to anyone, you needed a migratory bird license to hunt doves for a long time now.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: dove season

I haven't hunted in 16 years and when I bought my license for '10-'11 in January they were out of digests and all I was concerned about was squirrels and rabbits so I checked that info online. SOOOO, pardon me it IS a surprise ESPECIALLY after I asked the girl (who had been doing licenses ALL DAY) if I needed that for dove ( I specifically said dove) or was it just for duck/geese. She said NO I didn't need it for dove. Yes it is MY fault that I didn't research it myself after the fact.

So at the time of purchase I was NOT aware that there was a difference between the duck/geese/waterfowl stamp and the migratory game bird stamp or even the stamp for African and European Swallow as well as coconuts. Yes I am suggesting coconuts DO migrate.

I am whining to the best of my ability, is it working?
