Mourning Dove National Strategic Harvest Management Plan

This plan provided the framework for what became the Mourning Dove Harvest Strategy. The purpose of this plan was to: (1) promote the concept of coordinated management of mourning doves to insure uniformity of regulatory action and equitable conservation across the species range in the three Mourning Dove Management Units; (2) acknowledge the need to recognize demographic differences among management units; and, (3) acknowledge that the existing harvest management system, and the knowledge base supporting it, needed improvement.
