Anyone going dove hunting today ?

The kid and I are going after he's done with school. Hopefully we get some shooting. Good luck to anyone going out.

Good luck! Went fishing instead of hunting today because
the doves aren't migrating quite yet.

I'd rather be fishing or hunting!

I was out. I saw hunderds and hundreds of doves, unfortunately most of them did not come into range in the chopped corn field I was in. However, I made a classic double on doves with my 28 gauge SXS, so it was a great day.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

We only saw about a half dozen or so. My kid pointed out, that there were not much in the way of any kind of birds flying. Usually we see all kinds of birds, but not tonight. Maybe Irene blew them further west.

I too did not see many birds, maybe 10 in total. Sat from 4:30 until close to 7:30. None came into range. Next time...

Saw a couple hundred for sure, dropped three, but missed many more. Three doves and 30 shells. Not very good return.

Re: Anyone going dove hunting today ?

Hunted in one of our gamelands today. Not typical dove cover.It was a reclaimed strip mine. I have been taining a young female DD there and have been putting up enough doves while training to capture my attention. I figured that not many hunters if any would be there due its remoteness. Sure enough I was the only one and didn't here another shot all evening. Ended up with 14. Shot some while sitting and some on the jump. Neet thing was as I was walking and jumping them I flushed a hen pheasant. At that same moment a dove flushed and as I shot three young pheasants a little better than half grown flushed only feet from me. That is the third differant brood that I have seen while training the past month.
