2010-2011 Bird Hunting Season

E-mail Print PDF

For us bird hunters, a new year starts on September 1 with the opening of the Dove season.  Then over the next month, most of the upland bird seasons kick in, until our year ends around the middle of February.  This bird hunter will be hunting California's Imperial Valley on September 1.  I plan to hunt the Upland Game Fields that have been set aside by the California Department of Fish and Game in cooperation with Desert Wildlife Unlimited.  Any editors needing photos of the Dove hunt in this area should contact me before August 31 so I can include your needs in my photography plans for the opener.

Later in the month, I plan to hunt Yuma, Arizona with a group of friends that my son and I have hunted with for many years.  This outing will include two generations of hunters from two families and other hangers on.  This hunt is as much a social event as a good Dove shoot.  Again, editors interested in photos of this hunting area should contact me before September 8th to be included in my photography plans.

More on other upland hunt plans later - future destinations include

  • Nevada - late season Dove hunt, early Forest Grouse, to take place in late September
  • Idaho - Chukar, Forest Grouse, in October
