Hunting Doves with a Bow from a blind

I am seriously considering trying this the first day.

I know of a muddy patch in a pasture field where they like to land.

Gonna set up the deer blind about 15 yards from it and use field points.

Use a judo or blunt tip on your arrow. You won't lose arrows that skip across the ground.

I'm chipmunk hunting with my crossbow any recommendations.

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.

Recommendations? No.

Suggestions? Yes, read up on the game code. Chipmunks are protected in PA.

Use judo or other small game head for sure.

Get video.

Take lots of arrows.

This just seems silly to me but if your a good enough shot its worth a try.

Re: Hunting Doves with a Bow from a blind

Well how do you think some guys become even better shots? It's not silly, there's guys that bowshoot pheasants iug of the air using Flu flu arrows. My stepdad took two grouse with his bow once, I believe both of these were ground shots though. I wouldn't use field tips though, definitely judo points or blunt tips.
