Default Opening day dove report thread!

Not opening day but FND and I finally got out to shoot some dove on a much needed break. Mourning dove were the poorest we’ve seen in 10 years out here but the Eurasians saved the day.

Huge congrats. Those Eurasians are fun to shoot.

FND and I found some mourning dove on a pivot drainage and decided to hunt them today. …. ****ed if we didn’t kill two limits of mourning dove plus some bonus birds as they trickled in all day. This area never ceases to impress.

Went on a dove hunt out in Taylor a few days ago. Guy said he had planted sunflowers.... well I saw no sunflowers. Waste of $100. There were maybe 6 other hunters and we all shot maybe 10-15 times all morning.

If we can continue to stay dry through out the night I’ll be in the Ben Bolt area trying my hand for the S. Texas regular opener in the morning. There were plenty of birds flying in the Alice area on Saturday hoping this wind doesn’t push them out.

Hunted in Starr county over the weekend. Didn’t get a single shot at a white wing. There was almost no mourning or white wing flying. Worst hunting trip ever at the ranch.

We hunted Ben Bolt this Morning and as usual the first hunt is usually a free be for the birds as my shooting was a lot off. Hunted Alice this afternoon and ended with 21 between my son and I. So I should be shooting limits in a couple days. Birds were decent and limits were achievable if you can shoot. But not as thick as recent years. Still pretty soggy out there. I figure it will get better once it dries up.

We had a corporate event hunt Mon PM & Tues AM near Avalon TX in Ellis County. I didn't fire a round Monday and killed one bird Tuesday morning. I think out of 37 hunters you could have put all birds killed in one game vest

My sunflower patch got hammered by hunters, but a new group of whitewings are building back numbers, I ran to Academy and found some shells. I just need enough to eat them a few times I enjoy the morning hunts

We hunted south of Uvalde this morning. Started out a little rusty. The two of us, Managed 16 birds. Good number of birds, no white wings. Mojos were working good.

Massive wave of birds hit Jim Wells county Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning. 281 north of premont on the grain fields resembled Argentina. We had good birds in Falfurrias too.
