Dove season is going to be great!!
« on: July 21, 2006, 04:48:58 PM »
I was out scouting my dove lease last night and there were a ton of birds in the air!!!  You could always see some above the field, and the flights of Whitewings were amazing.  Imagine doves that are 2/3 the size of pigeons that come over in flights of 25 to 200 for an hour and a half straight, one bunch every 3-5 min.  Gives you just enough time to reload and send the dog out between shooting sessions!!  I personally enjoy wing shooting like this as much as anything on earth.. Dove hunting here is a social thing, and since it gives me a chance to watch the dog work I really enjoy it.  This will be Gina's first season with a gun in her hand.  She came with me last year every day that I went (which was about 20) and bugged me to take here more.  She is now about 70% on the skeet range and ready for the birds.... Only, she has grown awfully fond of my Beretta Xtreema 31/2 12ga and I know she wants to use it  :'(   It is worth giving up my favorite dove gun to have her company, but I can still complain!!  Now I have to decide what I want to shoot.  Probably for the first couple of days when the whitewings are somewhat low, and the morning doves haven't figured out exactly what those camoclad figures are doing, I will take my Win 42 .410.  It is a lot of fun to shoot a double and have someone ask what I am shooting and say a .410 when they are striking out with their 12ga!!

Who else here loves to bird hunt and is looking forward to the dove opener??

No season, no bag limit. 24 -7 -365.. no restriction on method of take.  If you have the permit you could use full auto silenced rifels on them with grenade launchers!!

If I could find some, and if I could afford a class III license or what ever it takes to use them I would.  I am thinking of buying a silenced rifle to use on trips!!  I think that people would really like to do that if we could set up 200  yards from a feeding group of hogs and drop 3 or 4 before they knew what was going on.  I can get a silencer for my 22-250 for about $400, but then I have to pay the $300tax for the stamp and get the end of the barrel threaded....  Who knows... I need to make a lot more $$ before I start doing this stuff!!

That is awesome, AB! The silenced hunting would be a blast, too! O0I can see that you would be swamped with clients when you offer hunting with a silencer.  O0
