A group that wants to stop mourning dove hunts in Michigan has submitted petitions to state election officials.

It's a key step in the group's campaign. The coalition wants voters to decide whether future hunts should be allowed in the November 2006 election. It turned in more than 275,000 signatures, probably far more than they will need to get the issue on the ballot.

The state held its first dove season in nearly a century this fall. Hunting was allowed only in six southern Michigan counties as part of a trial arrangement.
