While both New Jersey and the Keystone State have early seasons for resident Canada geese beginning Sept. 1, Pennsylvania offers something the Garden State doesn't - dove hunting.
There is a triple-split season with the first opening Sept. 1 and running to Oct. 1. Part two is from Oct. 29-Nov. 6 and the final segment Dec. 26-Jan. 4.
Hunting hours are from noon to sunset during the first season and a half hour before sunrise until sunset for the latter two periods.
Daily bag limit is 15 with a possession limit of 30.
Remember you need state and federal stamps, depending on what you hunt, in addition to a general hunting license.
