Dove Season Opens Labor Day

If you're a hunter, no doubt your calender has a big X on September 1st, the beginning of dove season.

Labor Day is the official start for dove hunting in Texas. But before you head out looking for the birds, don't forget that the game warden may be looking for you as well.

"We're going to be checking their plugs in their shotguns. We're going to be checking their bag limits, which is 15 here in Lubbock County," says game warden Quentin Terrel.

Hunters must also have a Harvest Information Program or HIP stamp on their license. Also, you must have a hunter education card if you were born after September 1st, 1971.
