TEN HUNTERS CHARGED WITH ILLEGAL DOVE BAITING IN UNION COUNTY

ANDERSONVILLE---TWRA Officers have charged ten individuals for hunting doves in a baited area near Andersonville in Union Co.

Wildlife Officer Rick Roberts reports that while he and other Officers were inspecting dove hunters in a corn field off of Albright Rd. on Labor Day morning, they located an area that had been recently tilled and sown with oats. Officer Roberts stated, “The oats that had been sown a few weeks ago had sprouted, but the field had also been top-sown with fresh seed within the past few days. There was also cracked-corn that had been scattered in the area.” The Officers located a bag of cracked corn in the bed of a pickup truck.

Officers also charged two of the hunters for hunting migratory birds with shotguns capable of holding more than three shells, which is a violation of Federal Law.

All firearms have been seized as evidence and the hunters have been cited into Union Co. General Sessions Court.

State and Federal Law prohibits the taking of migratory game birds by the aid of baiting, or on or over any baited area. The law further states when bait has been placed to attract wildlife, the area shall remain a baited area for 10 days following complete removal of all such corn, wheat, or other grain, salt, or other feed.

for starters they aren't hunters. they are poachers. hunters don't bait, poach or break the rules to harvest game.


good job TWRA

"Dove hunting has so many rules, I dont even hunt them anymore." That is a quote from our game warden. Lots of grey area in state law and federal law. Lets say every year you disk a spot up put legal amount of seeds on it. Invite 10 people to hunt it every year. But the only reason you disk it up is to have a dove hunt. Guess what you are baiting a dove field.

No grey area in having more than 3 rounds in your shotgun. No grey area in having cracked corn spread on the ground. Those two offenses alone justify the citations.

There's really not much grey area at all. If you give them more than a cursory glance, or ask questions of those qualified (and very willing) to answer, it's pretty cut and dry. Too many people legitimately put out legal fields year after year for me to buy someone claiming "Grey area".

Beachguy, "grey area" was just a quote from our game warden at our hunter safety course a couple years ago. Maybe they just didnt feel like talking about it or something. Someone ask a question about it thats when she made the statement. I quess the safe thing to do would be have them come check it out. Of course The 10 guys charged in the article , there was no grey area.
