New Public Dove Field Added in Marion County
By Lee McClellan
Frankfort, KY - Dove hunters now have an additional field to hunt that was not included in the public fields listing in the 2016-2017 Kentucky Hunting Guide for Dove, Early Waterfowl, Woodcock, Snipe and Crow.
This field is a 40-acre corn silage field in Marion County.
"Silage fields by their very nature come in late, so this didn't make the deadline for publication of the dove hunting guide," said John Brunjes, migratory bird coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "This field became available for lease and looked good for dove hunting. We are always on the lookout for additional opportunity for our hunters."
Hunters may reach the Marion County field by taking U.S. 68/KY 55 west from Lebanon for 1.3 miles. Turn right onto KY 426 (Miller Pike) for 3.6 miles, then left on KY 84 for three-tenths of a mile. Take the first left onto KY 412 (Saint Joseph Road) and travel 1.5 miles to Sally Ray Pike. Turn right and travel six-tenths of a mile to the dove field parking area on the left.
Printed copies of the 2016 dove guide began mailing to hunting license vendors this week. Hunters may also access a map, detailed directions and GPS coordinates of all public dove hunting fields at the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife webpage at fw.ky.gov.
"This late addition is a reminder to always check our website for the latest field information before hunting," Brunjes said.
