(Dove Hunters welcomed with open arms)…Part one of the Dove season began Sunday morning.
Hunters from around the state and other areas flocked to Imperial County over the weekend. They were welcomed with special events at Sunbeam RV Park, the Barbara Worth Country Club, Hot Rods and Beer and other locations around the Valley. The hunters are pursuing a limit of ten Native Doves, and an unlimited number of Eurasian Doves. The second season begins at the end of the year. Recent rains may have kept some hunters away for the first part of Dove Season, and it is hoped they will all be back for part two.
