Default .410 dove beat down!!!

We have been covered up in wood county the last week and a half! Last week were all small young local birds but this week they are everywhere and huge! Last 2 years have been one shot wonders on fields and that sucks because in our family business me and my dad canít be gone at the same time. So far we have been 3 times and had limits all three. Still have 3 fields we havenít hunted yet that are stacked with birds (dry years are always better for us)

Most goat weed doesnít even have seed in it, and none is mature. They are full of ďtickle tongueĒ berries

I got a limit with o/u .410 in a little over a box, Dad knocked his out with the beretta 12 I gave him a few years ago

It is a lot of fun. Been shooting a 410 for 40 years. Just choose your shots and have fun. I can normally get 12 with 20ish hand loaded shells.

I cheat a little.......

I just keep it for my dad. He only wingshoots. Never shot a deer and has no care to. But growing up watching him quail, dove and duck hunt it was like watching a ninja with a shotgun. Itís truly been therapeutic for him to start shooting again. Heís 65 now and today I noticed the reaction time wasnít there... but when he did shoot, it counted

What part of Wood County? My place is near 2088 and 312. I did not hunt it this year due to life getting in the way. Sounds delicious love me I am missing out.

Glad y’all have some birds up there. Sounds like a great hunt with your dad. I’m afraid we’re gonna be washed out of our season opener down here around Corpus Christi

410 = lots of fun! Once I got into the SUB sub-gauge(410ga / 28ga) I won’t take anything else to the field.
Keep wearing them out!

Just hunted for 1st time with a 410 in a Remi 1100. Talk about a BLAST!! Definitely have to pick your shots with it. Doesn't reach out like my trusty 12. But I'm ready to do it again.

When is the last time you went bird hunting? The limit has been 15 for awhile.
