Anyone still dove hunting?

Seems as if nobody is dove hunting this year. I've been out a couple times so far and am heading out in a few minutes to do some sitting.

I've been out 3 or 4 times. Been doing better in the mornings. One day last week I got 11 doves and 2 pigeons in the rain, while waiting for geese that never showed. I bought a Mojo dove decoy and that has increased my shooting.

I was traipsing around Crawford, Mercer and Lawrence county and never found enough doves worth stopping the car for. Even bought a decoy stand and a Mojo dove. For naught. Bummer.

Driving around isn't going to give you enough of an idea of their numbers. You need to stake out in a field around 6:00 pm or thereabouts and watch for them flying over.

Went out yesterday from noon to 1:30. Not the time I prefer to be out dove hunting but I had to work last night so better than not going at all. No doves spotted though, which I had expected. I prefer hunting them from about 4:30 until dusk. Thats when I normally see the most birds.
