Westar Energy’s Green Team will host youth dove hunts again this year at Jeffrey Energy Center in St. Marys.
The hunts will take place Sept. 1-4 in the early morning or late afternoons. Youths 16 and younger may participate, but they must bring their own shotguns, be accompanied by a non-hunting adult and have a license and Harvest Information Program (HIP) stamp if 16. Nontoxic shells will be provided for the hunters.
Hunters will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and hunts will be scheduled as requests dictate, according to a release from Westar.
To request an application, contact Jeanine Heinisch at (785) 575-6355 by Aug. 25.
