The Maui News

The last day to hunt mourning doves is Jan. 12, the state Department of Land and Natural Resources said Thursday.

The Division of Forestry and Wildlife said the shorter hunting season for the mourning dove (Zenaida macroura) was established to meet current state regulations and to comply with federal mandates, including the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

The fall game bird hunting season for all other game birds will remain unchanged and will run through Jan. 26. A valid hunting license and a game bird stamp are required for all game bird hunting on public and private lands.

For more information about the shorter hunting season for the doves, call the Division of Forestry and Wildlife at (808) 587-0166.
