A dove hunting opener and a big salmon contest highlight the holiday weekend.

Those sporty, and tasty, little speedsters are fair game starting today (Friday) and continue through Oct. 15 with a 15-dove daily bag.

They were, however, fearing a cold front on Thursday which often pushes many doves south.
