Texas Looks To Loosen Dove Hunting Regulations

From the Houston Chronicle:
Texas' half-million or so wingshooters could see substantially liberalized dove-hunting rules -- a longer season, larger bag limit, earlier opening day in the South Zone -- if federal wildlife officials give anticipated approval to modifications in regulatory frameworks governing migratory game-bird hunting.

If the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's regulations committee adopts the changes during its June meeting, Texas will this autumn see a statewide, 70-day dove season with a 15-dove daily bag limit.
