Default Public Dove hunt... Oct 7

LDWF Announces Leased Dove Field Hunt in Ragley on Saturday, Oct. 7

Printable Version
Release Date: 10/02/2017

Oct. 2, 2017 ? The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) will hold a leased dove field hunt in Ragley on Saturday (Oct. 7) the opening day of the second split of dove hunting season. Go to for more information on the hunt and for other public dove hunting opportunities on LDWF wildlife management areas (WMAs).

Louisiana dove hunters are reminded that a new regulation governing the type of shot they may use on WMAs and LDWF leased dove fields is in effect for the 2017-18 hunting season. Hunters on those areas will be limited to the use of non-toxic shot, size 6 and smaller for dove hunting.

The change is intended to reduce the deposition of lead shot and potential effects of lead on wildlife. Current research has demonstrated that in dove fields and areas surrounding dove fields, deposition of lead is high and concentration of lead is elevated in the soil.

The regulation was proposed and adopted in order to mitigate the potential exposure of lead to wildlife in areas impacted by this activity. Go to the LDWF web site at to see the 2017-18 hunting rules and regulations.

For more information on the Ragley leased dove field hunt, contact Kori Legleu at or 337-491-2575 for more information.
