Landowners, managers and others will have the opportunity to learn how to plant and manage dove food plots at the 2009 Dove Food Plot Demonstration and Field Day.

The August 29 event is perfect timing for the September 5 opening day. Held in Kilmichael, the event is free and open to the public and begins at 9:00 a.m. Instruction on planting, managing and legally manipulating crops and native plants to attract Mourning Doves will be provided during the one-day event.

Participants will also learn ways to manage a meaningful hunt for fun and profit, legal methods of field preparation to eliminate wildlife violations and ethics of attracting wildlife for hunting purposes.

Hosted by Mississippi State University’s Natural Resource Enterprises Program, the field day will also incorporate proven techniques to provide ideal dove feeding areas.

Wildlife biologists and enforcement officials from the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be on hand to provide one-on-one answers and discuss state and federal regulations.

The Natural Resource Enterprises program is a joint effort of Mississippi State University’s Extension Service, Forest and Wildlife Research Center, and Experiment Station.
