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?

corn, wheat, sunflower, etc. any of these do really well. milo and millet are also good.

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.

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. ...
