The Bordeaux Dove Field and Work Center is situated on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers land and managed by S.C. Department of Natural Resources. Approximately half of the 75-acre field is typically planted each year to a variety of agricultural crops such as sunflower, corn, sorghum, millet, sesame, and wheat. The remaining acreage is generally too steep and rocky to plant, and the goal is to manage for an early-successional native plant community that provides year-round quality habitat for a variety of wildlife species. The field is open to dove hunting only on designated dates only.
Hunters are reminded that the following special regulations apply to all Public Dove Fields in the WMA Program:
- Hunters are limited to 50 shells per hunt.
- Hunters are not allowed to enter fields before 12:00 noon.
- No shooting is allowed after 6:00 p.m. during the first season segment.
- Hunters are further reminded that littering is a violation of state law and WMA regulations. Hunters should remove all litter, including spent shell hulls, from the field at the conclusion of the hunt.
Hunters utilizing this field must have a valid hunting license, wildlife management area permit and migratory bird permit. Game species other than dove cannot be hunted on this property and there are no activities allowed other than dove hunting.
