Ringing In Dove Season

(From 09.03.22, Segment 3)

Another hallowed tradition to help ring in the autumn season is the Opening Day of Dove Season! The Outdoor Guys invite on Sampson Parker Jr., Wildlife Officer for Mecklenburg County, to discuss not only his responsibilities but also his ‘ins-and-outs’ recommendations for this iconic sport.

Officer Parker is the only NC Wildlife Resources Commission wildlife officer assigned to Mecklenburg County, and so he, along with assistance from officers in the surrounding counties, will be making sure that dove hunters are out safely participating in the activity while also following the laws and regulations. Sounds like a busy job? He says he likes his office (the outdoors!) better than anyone else!

And, as with most other outdoor activities, for those needing gear, Jesse Brown’s Outdoors is a wonderful place to turn, supplying brands like Filson to make sure the day goes off without a hitch.
