Question for you dove vets. (I haven’t hunted dove since I was a kid 30 some years ago)Just got home from a scouting trip to the I.V. this morning. Spent most of my time driving, but I did take an hour to blast a few Euros. Limited myself to ten birds, could have shot many more, the focus was on scouting and testing some upland steel ammo. Those Cheddite 1oz. #6s @1468 fps drop those birds like a rock, no head pullin' required! Things look good bird wise, not as many White Wings as I have seen over the last few years.

ya that’s my take as well...should be done by 7:30..I don’t see the issue. But then again, we live in CA. If they don’t allow hunting in the IV, heading to Yuma...I am going, I can't see wasting a good opener over a deadly virus unless there is some rule or law that is enacted regarding being in the middle of an open field with Doves falling like rocks all around me before then! I don't know how many of my hunting partners will be going. I am not to sold on the idea of riding 2-3 hours in the truck with anybody to get there, with the exception of my son. I have never seen much enforcement, of any type, down there on the opener even when folks are blatantly violating the law, shooting each other, or being drunk and shooting each other or any of the other typical behavior you normally see. I was limited and out of there by 7:30 the last three years, probably be on the road home by 8:30. Might stop and fish if it's not to hot, I don't know! It's going to be a wham bam thank you ma'am for me! ..................................Choot Em'
