Evergy Green Team invites area youths to dove hunt

TOPEKA, KS – July 27, 2023 – Dove season is here and the Evergy Green Team is hosting its annual youth dove hunt to kick off the season. It’s an excellent way to learn dove hunting basics, with plenty of birds flying at close range. The hunt will take place at Jeffrey Energy Center in St. Marys, KS, on Friday, Sept. 1 (afternoons only) and Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 2 and 3 (mornings and afternoons).

Youths 16 and younger may participate in the hunt. They must bring their own shotguns, be accompanied by a non-hunting adult, and, if age 16, have a license and Harvest Information Program (HIP) stamp.  Non-toxic shells will be provided.

The spacious wheat and sunflower fields have been prepared to draw plenty of doves, so the action should be lively.
