MDC – Free Virtual Dove Clinic
Area hunters interested in Dove Hunting have an opportunity for a free on-line clinic. Dove hunting is a popular outdoor pastime in Missouri, but the speed and darting actions of a mourning dove in flight can make for a challenging target.
Those interested in getting more information on how to get this game bird from the field to their table can sign up for the Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) virtual program “Learning to Hunt: Dove Hunting.” MDC’s Andy Dalton Shooting Range and Outdoor Education staff will offer this online program from 8:30-9:30 a.m. on August 8th. Among the topics of this free class are dove identification, habits and habitats, regulations, safety, hunting strategies, shooting techniques, and game care. People can register for this program at: https://mdc-event-web.s3licensing.com/Event/EventDetails/171721
While this program is free, registration is required to participate. Registrants must provide an e-mail, so a program link can be sent to them. This program will include a chat-based question-and-answer period where participants can interact with the presenters.
