NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency wants to lease fields for the upcoming mourning dove season.
The standard leased field is one on which grain or millet has been harvested. TWRA pays $75 per acre, up to 40 acres for a maximum of $3,000. Fields must be available for a minimum of three priority hunt dates in September. The fields will be leased by Sept. 1.
Landowners interested in leasing fields for the hunts can find the regional numbers for TWRA at its website -- http://www.tn.gov/twra .
TRWA says about 40,000 hunters bagged about 300,000 mourning doves last year in Tennessee.
