Michigan Dove Hunting Legislation <br> Headed to Governor

Tuesday, June 8, 2004

FAIRFAX, VA-- On Tuesday, the Michigan House of Representatives concurred with the Senate to legalize dove hunting for the first time in state history.  The National Rifle Association (NRA) has long supported adding the mourning dove to Michigan`s game species list.   HB 5029 is now headed to Governor Jennifer Granholm for her consideration.

"This is a significant development for hunters and sportsmen, who we hope will enjoy their first dove hunt in Michigan this fall," said Chris W. Cox, NRA`s chief lobbyist.  "A dove season will benefit all Michiganders by expanding tourism, increasing spending and creating jobs across the state.  Establishing a dove season will bring an additional $87 million to Michigan`s economy.

"On behalf of tens of thousands of Michigan NRA members, hunters and sportsmen, I urge Governor Granholm to recognize the importance of instituting dove hunting in Michigan by signing HB 5029 into law," concluded Cox.  

If signed into law, Michigan will become the 41st state with an established dove hunting season.  Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty signed similar legislation into law last month.

 The National Rifle Association is the nation`s leader in protecting the right to hunt for all law-abiding Americans.  Along with approximately 17 million American hunters and many national conservation organizations, NRA is working to preserve the American hunting tradition for future generations.  Hunters and sportsmen play a pivotal role in America`s economy and society, and have been leaders in promoting wildlife management and conservation.  Since 1939, hunters and shooters have paid over $4 billion in excise taxes on sporting equipment.  Hunters and fishermen fund nearly 75% of the annual income for all 50 state conservation agencies.  And, hunters contribute $21 billion to the American economy each year.
