Myself, I'd rather use 7 1/2 or 8's in either a 12 or a 20 ga. More pellets and they aren't that hard to kill as long as you can hit them.

Ive been to itching to get on some dove.

Its funny you ask that about hunting dove and teal at the same time - i was wondering if that was done around here. I figured out, by accident, that you can actually kill both on the same hunt. We were set up for teal and all these dove kept buzzing us and we finally got tired of passing on them and had a good dove hunt.

We have done this now for a few years (on purpose now) with pretty good luck in Arkansas.

anybody around Tulsa (or reasonablly close) got any decent land to kill some dove on - seeing as how I am new and dont have a clue where to go yet!!

Thanks gruber - for some reason ive always had a hard time finding good feilds.
I say we all try to plan ahead and go to that hunt in coweta on the same day - that we can put some faces to the names.
I will be looking for a free spot to go and if I can find one - i will try to let some of you guys know and we can plan a hunt.

About Ft. Gibson- I have tried many times to find a good dove spot here. The state plants mostly soybeans for deer. The doves kind of like soybeans but I haven't seen them gather there in huntable numbers. I found 1 or 2 cornfields at Gibson, there were huntable numbers of birds but there were also good numbers of hunters. We could have hunted there, but for the number of doves flying compared to the number of hunters it wouldn't have been worth it.

I saw curts guide service advertising already for dove hunts in the paper, Steve Perkins will be in there in August. I tried 2 years ago with him and got only 4 doves but the hunt was rained out. Then last year I tried and and it was great the first day and fair the second day. I think if you compare money spent on gas scouting and money used for the pay hunt the pay hunt will come out cheaper. :thumbsup:

Gruber- look on wildlifedepartment.com and go to the bottom right corner and there are the aerial photo/map thing and you can look at the whole state and find new places to hunt. I use it all the time it is awesome. :thumbsup:

I am not sure... probably so if I was guessing... I think my buddy paid about 100 bucks a day for the goose hunts...

Unless you live in SW OK I would not recommend curts guide service for doves. Nothing against curts, but doves are all over the state, there is no need to drive so far when you can have a great hunt only a few miles away. There are many paid dove hunts, some good some bad. If I hadn't hunted on the land before, before paying I would drive over and check out the field one morning to see if there is actually a lot of doves there. You should be seeing many doves, not just fair numbers, because you can have a lot better hunt than that. There are lots of $100+ hunts, but last year I paid either $40 a day or $40 for 2 days, can't remember which. There were literally thousands of doves, big clouds of them. That was the most doves I have ever seen, and that was about 30mi from my house. So I guess the main idea is don't drive across the whole state when you can have a great hunt a short distance away. :thumbsup:

Shoveler.... I wouldn't pay that much either, I just put that out there for people who might live in that area anyway. I am not a big dove hunter, so I wouldn't drive 30 miles to hunt them, now, give me a good duck spot and I'd drive an hour or so. Luckily, I only have to walk 300 yds. from my door to my duck spot... :smile:

I think I am going on Steve Perkin's hunt. He should be calling me anytime. And it will be in the paper anytime. That hunt in Morris has been in the paper for the last 3 years or so, so it must be a good place. Yeah, it would be fun to get together. :smile:

Steve still hasn't called or advertised...he may not be doing the hunt this year. I guess I will have to find someone else. :sad:

Free hunt

Postby naddaf20 » Fri Aug 17, 2007 3:24 pm

Dove season opens Sept. 1, a free hunting day
Dove hunters statewide should be counting their shotgun shells and arranging travel plans now for the start of dove season Sept. 1. But one thing Oklahoma residents can leave off their gear list for Sept. 1 and 2 is a hunting license.
Sept. 1-2 marks Oklahoma’s Free Hunting Days, where Oklahoma residents do not need a license to go afield. After Free Hunting Days, hunters need to have a hunting license, legacy permit and Harvest Information Permit (all available by logging on to wildlifedepartment.com) to hunt doves, unless exempt.
