Dove Everywhere

Postby Fowlweather_13 » Fri Aug 16, 2013 8:03 am

This early cool front and weather we are having has piled the dove on us here, seeing over a several hundred a day in 2 fields along with dozens of other fields that have around 100 Oct 5 cant get here fast enough. Anybody else seeing any large flocks of dove in there ag fields.

It's still hot as hell down here.
But I've been seeing tons of them when I'm
bass fishing on the lake. They keep making it
a point to pass by my boat within 30 yards, over
and over again. I think I'll start bringing my 20
with me when I'm fishing (after Oct 5 of course).

Someone needs to see about getting on some of them abandoned orange groves over there. Ill come out for that.
Only trust those who like big butts, for they cannot lie.

Turns out they're not abandoned. A corporation owns and is
operating those groves. I need to try and see if they need any
help controlling hogs or anything out there. Or doves!

Have been shooting at a private pay field for the last few seasons. Over toward Davenport bring all your own stuff, no lunch, or drinks, or dancing girls, provided. Plenty of room some fields are planted with food for dove and a couple small ponds. I will try to find info.

Cool, if they have spots I'd be interested in learning more.
Is it a season-long club, or pay by the day?

yep all season, area is about 300 acres+- so should be plenty of room. 1st phase starts at noon till 30 min sun set blah blah blah.
total do it yourself, pay the money sign the paper and good for one hunt. i dont remember any club speak just a farmer with some fields and some dove birds. a few ranch hands ride around in a jeep to keep an eye on things. been going for about three seasons always had a good time. i will find phone number in a while and post it up. so everyone still has time to dig out their shot gun and blow out the rust with some wd and get ready. :lol:

You do what you want, but I would caution you on publicizing a good gig, especially if it isn't crowded. If you want it to stay like it has, best to leave well enough alone. Guys can pm you for details and contact and keep it off the radar as much as possible, making for better hunts for all involved. Again, just something to think about. Once you hit send, it shows up in Google forever. Thanks for being willing to help out fellow members and good luck this season.
