Depends on what your hunting. There are some counties during dove season in the 2nd season I think that only allow hunting of dove from noon to sunset...

Legal shooting hours ends at sunset, not 30 minutes after....if memory serves me...

check the TP&W website when your unsure....

Read your manual.....How else are you going to know the rules..

Don't take everyone's advice from a forum...YOU need to be responsible for reading and knowing the rules.....

I know them becuase I have hunted ducks for the last 20+ years..

Some of the WMA and special lands have specific time-lines. Many begin 30 before sunrise and end at noon so as to stop afternoon hunting and allow the birds to rest.

I recommend even the experienced hunters read the regulations every year as things do change sometimes. And especially read the rules for public hunting areas. Collective there are quite a few rule changes for various public lands this year. For example one in the DFW area that did not require a corps permit last year, does require a permit this year. Another DFW lake has removed a portion of land/water from it's public hunting area. It was pointed out to me on the hunting map when I picked up my permit. If not told and one did not look at the newest map, they would not know.

Son....if you ain't much of a reader and you consider yourself a duckslayer....you worry me.

Everyone needs to read the rules every year as John pointed out.
That means knowing the times and everything else. How do you know I am not pulling your leg on the times? You have to READ for yourself.....

My suggestion is READ READ READ and then READ again so that you know exactly what your doing.


I sure hope you can identify a duck in the air before you shoot it..... up

Well before y'all start chewing him a new one, I know the manual like the back of my hand because I have read it about 50 times. I have talked to a few people before that said you couldn't hunt past noon. I have looked and looked and have never found anything. So he isn't asking a stupid question at all. He could have called the controling authority to find out what there rules are.

there are certain areas to the east that hunting ends at noon. But you need to be aware of where you are hunting and READ the rules

I went on a corporate dove hunt one year, and the guide argued with me telling me that all migratory birds hours were at sunrise, not 30 minutes before... I was surprised because he said he had been a guide for a long time..
