Gunshots, wild turkeys and pumpkins, oh my! Those were popular topics over the past week on social media.

There were literally hundreds of social media posts from worried residents who were hearing an unusual amount of gunshots in the Brentwood area. It turns out those gunshots were due to the opening of dove season, which officially began Sept. 1. Shooting at doves is not allowed in the city limits but is OK outside of the city. Since there are still a lot of agricultural areas where people may be hunting, city residents are hearing the noise. According to the California Fish and Wildlife website, dove hunting season goes from Sept. 1 to 15 and again Nov. 10 through Dec. 24.
