The 2022 Missouri Dove Season will begin September 1st and will run through November 29th. The hours for the season are from a half-hour before sunrise to sunset. Shelby County conservation agent Kevin Lockard advises hunters to start prepping now.

The daily limit for doves is 15 and the possession limit is 45. Lockard says there are different strategies hunters can use to hunt doves.
