In cooperation with landowners, local volunteers, businesses and other organizations, the Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources provides youth dove hunt opportunities across the state. A parent or mentor is allowed to register up to two youth hunters to participate in the hunts. The requirements include, but are not limited to:

  • Youth must be 15 or younger
  • Youth must be accompanied by an adult at least 21 years old or their parent with a valid state hunting license and a Harvest Information Program (H.I.P.) stamp
  • All are encouraged to wear eye protection and ear plugs.


We are implementing a new registration process this year. You will need to have a Conservation ID (CID) to register. Additionally, this year once you successfully register for a hunt, you will not be able to register for a second hunt until after the date of your registered hunt has past.

Detailed steps of the new registration process will be posted soon. We are in the final steps of editing this new process. The below table mentions the number of groups that can register for a youth dove hunt. A group is the registered adult at least 21 years old or parent and their youth(s) participant(s). A registered adult or parent can bring two youth participants. The registered adult or parent is allowed to hunt.
