For the opener, It all started after 3pm. Just a slow pick up till then. After that the skies opener up and the limiting factor was your shooting and how fast you could pick up birds. In total I planted 11 fields. Maryland was a big disapointment. There are way too many sunflower fields in Kent County to compete with. Sussex County was average. The sandy soil and no rain limited the size of the flowers and with constant mowing, a field of 28 acres of flowers that had ten hunters only shot 90 birds. Kent County DE was the place to be on Monday. With eight fields containing 77 acres of flowers, 80 hunters shot over 1,000 doves.
