Default Dove Hunting

First and foremost let me say there is no one to blame but myself. So yesterday I went dove hunting and when I got out to the field I realized that I left my plug at home, went skeet shooting last Sunday. Well I was too far to go back so I attempted to make one out of a thin stick but it broke. So I only loaded 3 shells on my gun. Ole GW shows up and is really pleasant but still writes me a ticket. Out of curiosity how much is a no plug ticket in Alabma. H

I will check for you. I hunt here in Bama with a retired GW. Last year I did the same as you did but was able to cut off a (green) branch and make a plug!

Thank you. I made the mistake. I just hope it isn't too much. My irresponsibility really made the misses happy.

No, you still need one. Don't know if they're migratory or not, but I always thought they were. Regardless, while hunting laws vary state to state, except the federal laws, I don't know of a state that a plug ISN'T required for dove.

I checked and the fine can very on the county, BUT the fine is insignificant when compared to the court cost here in AL. The court costs are usually $160+, and fine less than $35!

Yup. That is the kind of "plug" my Mossberg had in it when I bought it on the way to dove hunt in 1995.
