Special hunt offers disabled hunters shot at doves

Thursday, July 29, 2004

Hunters with mobility impairments will get a special shot at dove hunting at Ten Mile Pond Conservation Area.

The Missouri Department of Conservation and the National Wild Turkey Federation are sponsoring the special event for hunters with disabilities Sept. 3 at the conservation area in Mississippi County.

This is the second day of dove season, so odds should be good that the hunting will be productive.

The Conservation Department will provide hunting areas for the exclusive use of hunters who have reservations for the event. NWTF volunteers will serve as guides, helping hunters get to and from the field and to retrieve downed birds.

Participants will need to arrive at Ten Mile Pond headquarters at 5:30 a.m. and must leave the field by 1 p.m. They must have small-game and migratory bird hunting permits and hunter education certification cards.

For reservations, call Larry Neal at 573-334-8881, or Tim Hendershott at 573-335-9350.
