Title: Less Than 2 Month's 'till Dove Season.
Post by: bohicajuan on July 14, 2010, 03:59:59 PM
I can't believe this, but we've got less than 2 month's untill the opening day of dove season in Georgia. It open's September 4th and I'm trying to figure out where the summer went?

I guess we'll have to start looking around for a field to shoot, I'm pretty sure we're still welcomed on the field we shot last year, but I'm also sure at least one of our group will suggest we go somewhere else.

That's also a tradition it seems, with the Bud's I shoot with. Everyone could shoot their limit and somebody would still say the field wasn't a good one.

Last year, they raised the limit to 15 from 12, but shortened the season by a week or so. That was fine with me and as far as I know it'll be the same this year, but the regs. haven't been published yet.

The only thing cast in stone is that opening day is always the Saturday before Labor day, which makes it the 4th.

Has this summer gone by as fast for y'all as it has for me?

  O0 O0 Have fun with the doves, bo! We can't get a dove season here.  :tickedoff
Summer in Iowa. Floods, torrents of rain, hot as hell, bugs like you have never seen them, and severe storms and tornadoes one after another. Flooded rivers all summer cancelled most of our fishing and my yearly walleye fishing trip vacation with my son from Phoenix.  :sad:

Ah yes, Dove season. One of my favorites. Waking up at 5, going to the field, donning a light jacket, drinking a thermos of black coffee, loading the shotgun, and walking to the edge of the field to catch the birds the other hunters scare my way. Then being told how bad of a shot I am by the old men cause they heard 10 shots and I only got 5 doves. "If we depended on you to feed us, we'd all be dead!" (But with more laughing and more cussing  :roll: ) Same exact thing for the evening hunt, give or take a few birds. Breasting the birds over a bucket, the old men yell random tips about plucking, and then saying a few nasty things I won't repeat on this forum... :roll: Starting up the evening fire, wrapping the breasts in bacon and grilling em till they are crispy, and then being told how great you are to have around camp (because I cook and I always manage to kill something good to eat and I maintain a fire  O0 ) despite all the jokes about the bad shooting  :roll:, and then the men cuss until everyone drinks enough whiskey to put them to sleep.
 ;D

I NEVER hit them, but dove shoots are like a drug you know?

It's the first hunt of the fall and football season is starting, bow season is a couple weeks off, you're making sure the rifle is sighted in, and if you don't get your fix, you wind up going gonzo for the remainder of the seaon.

With as much ammo as I use pumping into the air at those buggers, I could afford to eat lobster or T-Bone. :D  I probably go through a box of 25 getting my limit of 15
