Posted on: 08/09/18

Registration for the popular mentor-youth dove hunts offered by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is open and continues through Aug. 17. Registration is available online only at the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife website,

“People have two weeks to apply,” said Wes Little, migratory bird biologist for Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. “Mentors must go online and complete the registration. They can go back to the website on Aug. 24 to check if they were drawn for the mentor hunt. Fields are assigned by random computer drawing.”

Hunters can also find dove field locations, maps and online applications at as well.

The mentor-youth dove hunts this year fall on opening day, Sept. 1. Kentucky will offer five mentor-youth dove hunting fields in Ballard County, Union County, Grant County, Mercer County and Lincoln County.

The mentor-youth hunts are open to adults accompanied by youth 15 and younger. Each mentor may take up to two youth, but only two shotguns are allowed per assigned field location. The adult may hunt and it is not necessary for the youth to hunt.

Hunting groups must check in prior to hunting and check out before leaving the field with Kentucky Fish and Wildlife staff.
