Kids In Nature YOUTH DOVE HUNT

Dove hunting is a long standing tradition in North Carolina. Typically, dove hunts were a way of taking advantage of an opportunity for abundant mourning doves after farm fields were harvested. You are invited to join Kids In Nature for our Annual Youth Dove Hunt on opening day – Saturday, September 2, 2017.
Pre-registration is required (space is limited), and all youth attending the hunt must possess a valid NC Hunting License or must have attended Hunter Education hosted by Kids In Nature.
You can register HERE. Select “Youth Dove Hunt” under Event section.
To Sign Up for Hunter Education Course offered by Kids In Nature go HERE. Once you get to the registration form, click on “Hunter Safety” under Event.
During the hunt, all youth will have one-to-one supervision and guidance from an experienced and licensed North Carolina Hunter. All birds harvested will be dressed (breasted) and prepared for you to take home for cooking.
