The law that ended that ban has been suspended, and there will be no more shooting of doves in the state until after a statewide vote on the measure in November 2006, according to a release from the Greens.
The Committee to Restore the Dove Shooting Ban filed over 275,000 petition signatures in March -- almost twice as many as were needed to qualify the referendum for the ballot. Dove hunters, who had influenced elected officials to get the ban ended, did not challenge the petition.

KID ROCKS
BOYNE MOUNTAIN
Northern Michigan’s adopted son, Kid Rock brings his Twisted Brown Trucker band to Boyne Mountain on Sunday, July 17 in a show that should knock some of the rust off of the Northern Michigan concert scene.
The show by the multi-platinum performer signals Boyne Mountain’s debut as a major player in the Northern Michigan music scene and is the first concert in its Music On The Mountain Series. The show is significant because few major concert venues in the region offer music of interest to younger listeners.
General admission tickets at $39.50 are on sale at ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster locations. Tickets may also be charged by phone at 616-456-3333, 517-484-5656 or 989-754-4800.
