Evergy Green Team invites area youth to dove hunt

TOPEKA, Kan. (August 8, 2020) — 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 on Sat., Sept. 5, Sun., Sept. 6, and Mon. Sept. 7 in the early morning or late afternoon.

Youths 16 and younger may participate in the hunt. They must bring their own shotguns, be accompanied by a non-hunting adult and have a license and Harvest Information Program (HIP) stamp, if age 16. Nontoxic shells will be provided. State and company guidelines for social distancing, wearing masks, and traveling in separate vehicles will be adhered to.

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

Hunters will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Hunts will be scheduled as requests dictate and hunting groups can be formed. To request an application, call Shelly Gomez at 785-575-6355. Applications are due by Thursday, Aug. 27.
