Opening Day of Dove Season with James Buice

Segment 2, September 2nd, 2023

One of the rights of passage in saying goodbye to summer and hello to fall is Labor Day weekend.  That Saturday each year is a part of the southern tradition of opening day of dove season.  Many across the Carolinas & other states are gearing up for a noon time open in the dove field of their choice.

From the mothership & Filson dealer of Charlotte, Jesse Brown’s, Carolina Outdoor host Bill Bartee welcomes hunting & flyfishing contributor, James Buice, to share his memories of Opening Day of Dove season.
Some things Buice mentions:

  •  Make sure that you’re not hunting over a baited field
  • Have your HIP permit with your hunting license
  • Keep your gun muzzle in a safe direction
  • Wear lightweight clothing to be comfortable
  • Keep your harvested birds in a shady spot to keep them cool

These migratory birds have a daily bag limit of 15 in both Carolinas & check the dates from Opening Day & beyond in South Carolina & North Carolina.
