Lubbock Game Warden says dove hunting prospects 'pretty good'

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Dove hunting season starts Saturday and Mallory Brodrick, a Texas Game Warden assigned to Lubbock County, says this year should be an improvement over 2011.

"It should be a pretty good year with all the rain we've had, plenty of water supply, and food.  So it's gonna be great," she says.

Many of the rules are statewide, such as the requirement to take a hunter safety course for anyone born after 1971.  And of course, migratory water game bird stamps are mandatory.

Other rules can vary from place to place.  "It's really up the county ordinance how big an area you can hunt on." 

Brodrick is also passing along certain safety messages.  "The biggest thing is if you're going be backed up to someone else's property be conscious.  If the line is right here [next to you] and the bird is coming this way [toward the property], you need to stop." 

She says the same idea applies when hunters are near a roadway. 

Although much of dove hunting is done on private property, Brockrick says there are some public hunting grounds as well - including one near Abernathy.
