Dove season began September 1
Dove hunters will hunt around Pflugerville as dove season begins.
"The Police Department tends to get a lot of calls when hunting season begins because people are curious as to why they are hearing the gun shot noise," Assistant Chief of Police Jim Mclean said. "We want to make sure everyone is aware that dove season begins Monday, and state law allows hunting on a tract of land of 10 acres or more, so you may hear hunters in the city limits.”
The Police Department will enforce based on the state law. The Police will respond to all shots fired calls to investigate if any laws have been broken.
Hunting is allowed from 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset. To report a concern, call the Pflugerville Police Department at 512-251-4004. In an emergency, call 9-1-1.
