Dove hunting/shooting anyone??

Did any of the group make opening day? I'd like to hear about a successful hunt as opposed to the one I had. I haven't been on a dove shoot in 5 yrs I'd say so the boyz wanted me to go on this SUPER hunt in Lumberton where the alleged doves were as thick as mosquitoes. Since my good buddy is a Sarge w/the RPD we had a "choice" field w/about 30 other policemen. We paid $15 and went where we wanted so there was no one to blame but ourselves. Mike had to go to this point that he felt would be great so here we go. I got set-up in my place and it must have been deemed a NO FLY zone by the doves. I was out there all day w/the copious colonies of fire ants while being "lobsterized" by the heat. I only got ONE dove...ONE FLIPPIN DOVE that I couldn't find on top of it all. The guys next to us in the next field racked up. So after my reflection of paying say $25 for shells, $30 worth of diesel fuel, $15 hunting license, $25 chair and shirt, $15 for the alleged hunt/shoot and the expense of missing a day of leisure I have decided that this is one expensive dove wherever he or she may be.

Better hurry up. Some goofball group is trying to block dove hunting starting next season until it can come up on a statewide referendum.

Dove hunting hasnt started here yet. I live in South Texas. I think it starts in a couple of weeks though. Dove hunting is one of the funnest hunts there is. Lots of action. Not like deer. By the way how much is you guys hunting and fishing liscence? Ours went up this year. Its now $64.00 for a combo. I think ours has gone up every year for the last few.

I made opening day in Ohio. We went on a controlled hunt on Ohio Public land. You could only take 75 shells, and the game wardens were out in full force. They were checking everything: plugs, shells, license, birds, and everything else. It was super hot - anyway ended the day with 12 doves. Not too bad since the limit was 15, the guy next two me shot 75 times and only knocked down 2 birds. Dove shooting is definitely not for the inexperienced.

I wanted to go today but rain.

The best i've done was fifteen birds with twenty shots.

I'll get out this week sometime. I brought out the shotgun last night to clean and get everything togeather, the dog was going crazy. so she knows she will be going soon. It is nothing better than to watch a good dog work.
