Monthly sessions by experienced mentors starts soon
YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - In collaboration with Yuma Valley Rod & Gun Club, Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) and Sprague’s Sports, the Yuma Trap & Skeet Club is hosting a women's beginner dove-hunting series.
The series is scheduled to begin Friday, May 21, with a trap shoot at Adair Shooting Range approximately 15 miles Northeast of Yuma on Hwy 95 from 6-9p.m. Trap shooting targets move away at predictable angles, making them a better choice for beginners.
A meet and greet course is planned for June, firearm course in July, shotgun overview for August; all culminating with dove hunt on Monday, September 6. Through these experiences, women 18 years and older will have the opportunity to receive hands-on learning with shooting clay targets, firearms and hunter safety.
The 2021-2022 Dove Hunting Season kicks off on Wednesday, September 1, at a half hour before sunrise. It runs through Wednesday September 15th at sunset. 2021-2022 legal season dates include:
- September 1 through September 15 - Any Mourning or White-winged Dove
- Late Season (Dates Available Soon) - Any Mourning Dove
- Year round - Eurasian Collared Dove (unlimited bag limit)
