Ive been looking at blinds to hunt doves out of about every day this week. i setup on the edge of a plowed field and need some more cover. Its either a blind or im going to buy the netting and use a couple poles and make my own. Ive also been buying up every steel 71/2 i see, They get scarce come september.

I don't hunt dove, but yesterday I was at the feed/seed store and saw someone buying a 50 pound bag of safflower seed. I think he might be preparing for dove season???????????

Not where we are usually. They tend to migrate if thunderstorms hit. A couple years ago we were hunting great opening day and we had thunderstorms all night. Next day there was much less of them and white wings were few to be found.

I hunted Euros this morning until 11:30, good numbers of Mournings and way less whitewings than last season. Promising!

Imperial. Hot, Hot, Hot. The only way to hunt in this heat is shoot one hot spot, then drive and cool off, then hit the next one. We did this about 5-6 times, then hit the road home by 11:30 and that was pushing it. The bird numbers really start falling off around 10-10:30. A bottle of water in one hand and my Super Sports in the other is what works for me in this heat. I think we have some fun on tap for the opener. I like to hear you guy's prospective on what you are seeing bird wise compared to previous years.
