heck ya im ready my sunflowers are doing great even though they could use some more rain...and as to the public land, i hear that is basically a madhouse to hunt there, crazies, and its crowded, i would personally steer away from the public hunts unless its the only way you can hunt

yeah in the sunflowers is just about the best place for a dove hunt.....public land hunts will most likely be all i can do, being that i am soon to move and also don't know anybody in the area....guess I will have to start meeting people fast...public is about as crowded in Texas, if it is good land....

Some public shoots only alow so many people but u better be early. I personally have done quite well at some public shoots in my area.
The dove hunting on privite land can be spectacular. 3 years ago in Shelby co. at my x-girlfriends dads farm he planted sunflowers along with wheet in strips. There was 16 of us and we started shooting at 2pm and by 4:30 evrybody had there limit. So there is great hunting just have to know the right people.
Kentucky also has a list of the public shoots and how to get to them.

There are some good shoots in Lexington and right outside of it, especially in Woodford and Winchester. Doves aren't too hard to kill as long as you have a decent field.

The trick to hunting public dove fields is not to hunt them on the weekends. Go during the week and you'll have a good hunt with out all the people.
