I'm huntng a wheat stubble field Friday night! Monday night I stopped by to put them to bed and counted almost 300 on the high lines that run along the edge of the field. Man I am so pumped because this is the first time in 5 years that I am going to be able to hunt dove or early geese/teal.
We're gonna smash 'em! :getdown:

limited out

Postby bigman15 » Fri Sep 01, 2006 4:49 pm

It took 2 1/2 hours for my partner and I to limit out with 15 dove apiece. While we were leaving the field big flocks of dove were starting to pour into the fields. Cant wait till to do it again. :laughing:

the doves were real thick at our sunflower patch, we had 10 limits in about an hour. I hope everyone else is having as much fun as we did!!
