Best Food Plots for the DOVE

Postby hunter for life » Tue Apr 05, 2005 3:42 pm

What does everyone think is the best thing to plant to bring in the dove?
I heard some guys plant a mixture of stuff?
What kind of food source have you guys had your best hunts over?

my best hunts have been over a field of feed corn that was already harvested with alot still on the ground. around yuma they love milo maize (? spell) they are always FULL of the stuff.
This site is about having some fun, learning, helping others, and enjoying the commaradre' of other waterfowl hunters. And if you do not like those 4 things, then do not let the door hit you on the way out of here.

in my area" west central IL" hands down sunflowers. a large sileage field comes a close second. but doves per acre seem to be much higher in the flowers

we get doves in droves when the Thistle seeds out...though i can't imagine WHY anyone would intentionally plant thistle.

when i lived in arizona we would get them in just about any grain field with good success.

Texas Wheat Sunflowers Milo

Postby CuzTheyFly » Wed Apr 13, 2005 4:37 am

Milo- Sunflowers_ Wheat- or anything that gets me on the tractor for a few hours and away from the computer!!! Have you ever hunted over Dove Food Plots? The experience is quite impressive!! Food plots just take trail and error for the area you are in. BE carefule with your State's and the FED anti-baiting laws.... Cause Federal and State Game wardens can make a good time go bad quick! We walk our fields with the gamewarden prior to huning them with clients.. Mis interpretaions or mistakes can and do happen, if the plot is secret you might have an issue. ...
