Iowa: Dove Hunting Bill Passes in Senate Committee
Recently, the Senate Natural Resources Committee passed Senate File 83 by a 10 to 3 vote. Sponsored by state Senator Dick Dearden (D-34), SF 83 would establish a mourning dove hunting season in Iowa. This legislation would add the Hawkeye State to the list of forty other states whose conservation and local economies are benefited by recognizing this type of hunting. Doves are the most popular and abundant game bird hunted in America and there is no biological justification to continue to deny Iowans the right to hunt them if they choose to do so. Do not let the anti-hunters decide what you can hunt!
