Dove season has been set...

Postby ol' yeller » Wed Aug 09, 2006 6:51 am

Not sure when they set it, but here is the info.

September 2-24, 2006
October 7-22, 2006
Dec. 16, 2006 - January 5, 2007

Daily limit: 15
Possession limit: 30

Eurasian Collared-Doves - No daily bag or possession limit.


Don't know about you guys, but I've been seeing more dove than I can ever remember seeing at this time of the year. There's also been a huge boom in Eurasian Collared-Doves. 4 years ago we never saw one and now they are everywhere.

woo hoo, I think it might be a decent year for the doves. Did not see very many last year but this year i'm covered, I think it might be because where i hunt at is the only water and big food source around. right now.

But We only have 5 day's untill waterfowl season is set and the YES or NO on the zones.

sadie, I bought a Yildiz 20 ga. O/U. Our new Academy opened today and they are the sole distributors for them. It's a really nice looking gun for the money and what sold me was that it fit me like a glove and that Briley handles all of the warranty claims for Academy. I shot some clays today and so far I'm loving it.

The one I bought was $386 plus tax. With our 9.25% sales tax it came out to $427.22 I believe.

I've read quite a bit on these guns and saw nothing but good things. I am extremely impressed with the wood to metal fit and the quality of the wood is excellent for the price of the gun. I may just check into one of their side by sides.
