Opening day is just over a week away for upland bird and small game hunting season. Game and Fish Information Specialist Warren Mischke explains what's coming up on September 1st.
Mischke says that upland bird season is a good introduction to the sport for the up and coming hunters.
September 1st is also opening day for snowshoe hare, cottontail rabbit, red fox and gray squirrels. Mourning dove hunters are reminded that they need to have a HIP permit in their possession while hunting. The free permit can be obtained online at the Game and Fish website or at any license selling agents.
