The 2016 dove hunting season begins Sept. 1 and ends Oct. 25, 2016. Beginning on Sept. 1, along with the opening of dove season, hunters who are planning on obtaining property owners’ permission to use their land for hunting purposes must ensure that they are at least 1,000 feet from schools, hospitals, and day care facilities, as well as at least 600 feet from residential housing and multi-family residential complexes. Additionally, hunters should ensure--as always--that they fire their weapons in a manner not reasonably expected to cause a projectile to cross the boundary of property tracts
View the map below to find out where hunting is allowed. Hunters must obtain permission from the property owner prior to hunting any tract of land inside city limits. If you have questions, please contact the McKinney Police Department at 972-547-2700.
