North Dakota's dove hunting season opens statewide on Thursday.
The daily limit is 15 and the possession limit is 45. Shooting hours are a half hour before sunrise to sunset.
The state Game and Fish Department is reminding hunters to register with the Harvest Information Program prior to heading out to the field. The program collects hunting activity data to improve game bird management.
Those who registered to hunt the spring light goose or early Canada goose seasons in North Dakota do not have to register with HIP again, since it's required only once per year.
The dove season runs through Nov. 29.
