Dove Hunt Recommendations Due

A recommendation to allow a trial mourning dove hunt in Michigan is expected to be detailed Thursday.

A final recommendation could be voted on by the state's Natural Resources Commission next month. Limited hunting in six southern Michigan counties could begin as early as September 10 and run until late October.

Hunters would be able to bag up to 15 mourning doves a day under terms of a draft recommendation. The proposal could change depending on public comment received in the next 30 days.
