Just in time for the upcoming dove hunting season, bird hunters in Wisconsin can now find every managed dove field on Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources land with ease through the Fields & Forest Lands Interactive Gamebird Hunting Tool. For more information, search the DNR website dnr.wi.gov for keyword "FFLIGHT."

FFLIGHT was designed to help upland gamebird hunters locate cover suitable for ruffed grouse and woodcock, managed dove fields and properties stocked with game farm pheasants.

The tool allows hunters to quickly locate: cover suitable for ruffed grouse and woodcock; fields managed for mourning doves; and properties stocked with pheasants by the DNR.

Remember to check this year's hunting and fishing regulations to learn more about updated season structures, bag limits and more. For more information, search keywords "hunt" and "fishing," respectively.
