Early Season

Postby ohio mike » Sat Sep 18, 2010 10:07 am

So how did everybody do Geese,Teal,Doves? I killed three geese could have killed more but I wanted to make it easy on the dog .Singles only for now and I was hunting by myself.Went three times.Killed a few doves and never saw a teal.Evening hunts only.
Life is to short to hunt with a ugly gun.

Sounds like I'm not the only one off to a slow start. I have got 1 goose, and 4 doves so far. Will be hunting the corn field at my parents' place as soon as they pick it. Doves should be heavy by then.

My teal hunt turned into a dove hunt pretty quickly....

About 70 doves but that was my focus. Saw a few teal fly-by's but nothing shoot-able. Didn't set up on any geese.

Best Teal shot I would have had was one that peeled off his group to check out the dove mojo in mowed sunflowers. Unfortunately I was sitting with lead.

Love to eat 'em... :yes: I was lucky enough to get 3 limits on outings that opening week. After that 4/5/6 a trip. Love the simplicity of a dove hunt. :thumbsup: Plan to put some more effort into the 2nd split in December this year too...they can get pretty thick in that later season if the weather is right and tend to be grouped up. It's harder smacking a double when there 15 coming in rather than three (at least for me). :lol3:
