Westar Energy Green Team invites area youths to dove hunt

August 08, 2014
Hunt to take place the weekend following Labor Day at Jeffrey Energy Center.

Topeka, Kan., Aug. 7, 2014 — Dove season is here, and the Westar Energy Green Team is hosting its annual youth dove hunt to kick off the season. It's an excellent way to learn dove hunting basics, with plenty of birds flying at close range. The hunt will take place at Jeffrey Energy Center in St. Marys on Sat., Sept. 6 and Sun., Sept. 7 in the early morning or late afternoon.

Youths 16 and younger may participate in the hunt. They must bring their own shotguns, be accompanied by a non-hunting adult and have a license and Harvest Information Program (HIP) stamp, if age 16. Nontoxic shells will be provided.

The spacious wheat and sunflower fields have been prepared to draw plenty of doves, so the action should be lively.

Hunters will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Hunts will be scheduled as requests dictate and hunting groups can be formed. To register, call Barb Cornelius at 785-575-8125 by Friday, Aug. 29.
