Sunflower fields are beautiful, but did you know they are also great places for mourning dove hunting?
Mourning doves are currently hunted in at least 40 states in the United States. Even though approximately 41 million doves are harvested annually, research has demonstrated that September hunting does not negatively impact the number of young doves added to the population or significantly decrease long-term dove abundance. 4-5 million doves migrate from Wisconsin each fall alone!
