Like New Jersey, Pennsy also has an early Canada goose season starting Sept. 1. But unlike the Garden State the mourning dove is considered a game bird across the river and there's a triple-header of seasons for those sports who want to get in on some fast wing shooting early in the year long before the pheasant and quail seasons begin.
Dove season, bring plenty of shotshells, runs from Sept. 1-29; Oct. 27-Nov 24 and Dec. 26-Jan. 5 in the Keystone State.
Meanwhile, doe permits are going fast with 13 management units already sold out. You can find the status of each zone by going to the Pennsylvania Game Commission's website. Google it.
If you have a spot to hunt in Bucks County, there are heaps of permits left in certain zones.
