The dove population is scattered throughout the state of South Dakota, and is also fed from migratory flocks from the north. Dove hunters can find their prey most frequently perched on tree limbs above water reservoirs. They can also be found feeding on corn, oats, or wheat from harvested fields. These speedy birds have been clocked at 50 miles and hour so are definitely a challenge to hunt.
Dove Season and Location
Dove hunting season runs from September to mid-November and are located all throughout the state.
