Im always torn in thought this time of year about the doves and their movements, seems most of the guys posting, did good on doves the first 2 days and now are reporting not many around and they think they have moved south. Well did they really migrate south or just move areas because of the hunting pressure on their territories. In our group the adult men shot 3 limits the first day and the youngsters shot 12 between them so that's a total of 57 birds. Yesterday morning 3 limits were taken so all total that's 102 birds taken. Yesterday we saw about 50% of the birds we saw Sunday, Id prefer to think we took a 30 % of the total birds on the hunting area, 40% stayed on the area and the other 30% move from the area. We noticed going home yesterday that there were more birds approximately 5 miles south in our other hunting area than there had been for the last 3 weeks. So I guess its the same old question I always ask myself , did they fly south to Texas or just leave the hunting area due to pressure.
If you're there for the limit, you're there for the wrong reason
