Sept. 1 was the start of dove hunting season, which runs until Nov. 12 and again from Dec. 17-Jan. 2, according to the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department.

According to the city of Frisco, dove hunters must obtain permission from the property owner before hunting on any tract of land inside city limits and must be at least 1,000 feet from any schools, hospitals and day care facilities. Hunters must also remain at least 600 feet from residential housing.

"Additionally, hunters should ensure—as always—that they fire their weapons in a manner not reasonably expected to cause a projectile to cross the boundary of property tracts," the city's website stated.

The Frisco Police Department works with hunters and landowners to ensure that safe practices are being followed. If residents feel that safe and reasonable distances are not being maintained by hunters, they are urged to contact police, the website stated.

The city has provided a map that shows hunting areas in Frisco. Blue areas on the map represent land 50 acres or larger, and green areas represent land 10 acres or larger.
