Tennessee's dove hunting season opens at noon Sunday.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has divided the season into three segments. They are Sunday through Sept. 26, Oct. 12 to 27 and Dec. 19 to Jan. 15. Other than the opening day noon start, hunting will be allowed all other days from 30 minutes before sunrise until sunset.

The daily bag limit for mourning doves is 15 birds. There is no limit on collared doves.

Hunters must carry a valid Tennessee hunting license and a Tennessee Migratory Bird Permit.

The early Canada goose season also begins Sunday and has a daily bag limit of five.
