Michigan Dove Season On November Ballot


MICHIGAN -- A measure to stop the mourning dove season in Michigan is set for public vote in November, and the National Wild Turkey Federation has donated $10,000 to help fight anti-hunters' efforts to end dove hunting in the Wolverine State.

In 2004, a bill was passed to establish the state's first dove season. Petitions from anti-hunters, however, stopped dove hunting after only one season.

"Once anti-hunters had enough signatures, it put an end to the dove season until it went to the public for a vote." said Dan Potter, former National Wild Turkey Federation Michigan state chapter president.

Potter represents the Michigan state chapter of the NWTF on the Citizen for Wildlife Conservation Committee, which is committed to getting the dove season reinstated. The steering committee for CWCC is comprised of representatives from Michigan United Conservation Clubs, Michigan Bear Hunters, Michigan Hunting Dog Federation, Safari Club International, U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance and the National Rifle Association.

To date, more than 50 conservation and hunting organizations donated time and money in support of getting the dove season reinstated.
