Nah,jOe. Plenty of doves around my south GA area and I've been opening the dove season with the same guys for many years, some since we were in high school together about sixty years ago. Not near as many of us as there used to be but new generations make up the loss. I often hunt now with the kids of the kids who grew up around our home playing with my kids. I hope that my grandsons enjoy the same lifetime hunting camaraderie with my old friend's grandkids as my generation did with our old hunting buddies...Geo

Hopefully they'll stick around. In our area with all of the agriculture, you can have a lot of birds one day on a corn field harvested in August, but when a neighbor pulls his peanuts, or who knows what in September, they're gone! smile
Good luck!

ed, you can ruin a thread faster than a tomcat pissing on a face mask.

I do not go to dove shoots to drink, or bullshit. I go to test my mettle against hard, fast flying doves. I had rather eat them than a good steak. I don't go where the drinking and shooting are mixed. And I don't tolerate idiots and fools well. So, how about taking YOUR stupid garbage somewhere else.

I don't wear face masks, I actually think they are silly, so I'll concede that was a poor comparison.

Don't live in S. Georgia, so you'll have to take that up with somebody else.

One thing for sure, yOu and ed can sure sidetrack a thread. I'll try to get this back on track.

Haven't decided which .410 will get the nod for opening day. jOe's favorite, the Yildiz ............

Or his second favorite, the Dickinson ...........

Neither, for me. I hate liver but love doves. They taste nothing alike, IMO. I once ate 17 doves at one sitting, with nothing to drink but water.

Reminds me of Paul Newman's boast in the classic movie "Cool Hand Luke": I can eat fifty eggs....Geo

Big difference. I didn't plan on eating any certain amount, or brag on doing it. I know better. Ate 14 grilled ones once. Woulda eaten a full limit but we ran out too soon.

Stan I planted three fields this year. We have had too much rain and one field is just a poor example of a Dove field with weeds in sunflowers and corn stunted by too much water. The second field looks decent, with wheat waiting for strip mowing, sunflowers bending over with enormous heads and corn head high, for cover. The best field has everything growing like crazy with corn almost nine feet high. Now if only birds are around we should be in business. My countdown is sooner as September 1 is our start. Wish you and everyone here has a safe and bountiful season.

As long as we don't have a hurricane blow them out of here, we should a good opening. Dummy powerline is a quarter mile long and runs lengthways through a 30 acre field. Photo taken earlier this week. Gil

You Dixie based gents might find it interesting to read, or re-read Nash Buckingham's "The Dove"-- he talks about baiting, arbitrary distances or zones and what a nightmare that fiasco was to enforce, 1/2 day seasons (also might work for waterfowling too) and other sage bits of wisdom from De Shootin'ist G'entman hisownself>> RWTF
