Figured I'd make a place where everyone could post their pics. I didn't see another one, but if there is, Smart will post his timeline.
Good luck everyone. I'll be at work.

Need more hunters in my area to push the birds some. I've only heard three other shots all morning and that's my brother in law in the pasture across from me.

Today is my day off from work, and I was supposed to meet my son in Marble Falls today to hunt (he's in school in San Angelo). But, due to the panic gas buyers, there isn't enough gas to fully fuel up, and I don't want to take the chance of running out of gas and not being able to refuel. The wife and I each have a half a tank of gas, which is enough for us to get back and forth from home and work for a week. Hopefully, the gas shortage will be "fixed" by then. Dang idiots ruined opening day for me and my boy. Oh well, I don't know how successful we would be anyway. I noticed yesterday afternoon there aren't any doves flying around the yard, and we're usually lousy with dove with all of the neighbors and their bird feeders.

You guys that are going - good luck and be safe.

Regards,

Dave

Headed to join a big group at a friend's ranch just west of Lampasas. A ton of white wings roost in town and fly over us going and coming . We don't limit very often but it's a lot of fun. He has 6 remote clay throwers set up and there are continuous rounds of Wolf Chase being played between hunts. Chow is always epic on this trip. Stay safe everybody !
