Patoka Lake announces controlled dove huntsAugust 4, 2020
PATOKA LAKE — Wildlife Management staff at Patoka Lake will conduct two separate in-person drawings for two controlled mourning dove hunting opportunities on Tuesday, Sept. 1. The drawings begin at 6 a.m. at the Archery Range Shelter House in the Newton-Steward State Recreation Area.
The first drawing for staked positions is designated for youth hunters only — ages 12 to 17 — that are new to dove hunting and need mentoring in the sport. The second drawing will be for staked positions in a standard controlled dove hunt field for 15 to 20 positions.
Hunters are limited to a max of two firearms per stake and must procure the proper licenses, stamps and federal HIP numbers. Shooting hours will be from 6:45 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Interested hunters can contact the Patoka Lake Main Office at 812-685-2464 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for more information. Questions about federal and state hunting laws, statutes and rules can be directed to conservation officers at 812-837-9536.
