DOVE SEASON

5 posts in this topic

I enjoy dove hunting and wondering how many of you have gotten into dove hunting and what your experiences have been.

Absolutely love it. You get in the right field or watering hole and it's an absolute blast.

I have never been able to get on a good field until last year. Well, last year two buddies brought me with to hunt with them over their spinning wing decoys. The doves were acting like the decoys had suction power. With three of us shooting over the decoys, it just didn't seem very sporting to me. So I walked to the other side of the field and shot a few birds on their natural route flying. THAT was a challenge, and I enjoyed it. My buddies kinda laughed at me when I had 4 birds, and they had their limits, but for me it wasn't enjoyable to just pile up the birds with three people shooting over the decoys. To each their own, though.

I hope to make it out a couple of times this fall dove hunting. It is a great warm-up for ducks and pheasants.

I had fun last season dove opener. It was my pups first "real" hunt and he retrieved 8 doves for me. A little warm still in early September, but it was a blast and a great way to kick off the season.

Some of us were hunting early season goose last year and the field we were in was just loaded with doves. After the morning hunt we went and got some lead and my mojo dove decoys and had a fun 1.5 hour shoot. We got 21 between the three of us. I went back out the next day and got my limit in about 2 hours or so. Went out another evening and got a few more. Should have went back there a few more times, it was a great spot.

The morning I got my limit was close to as much fun as I've ever had hunting. They are awesome to eat. A slice of jalapeno, roll them up in bacon and grill. We also breaded and deep fried a few. Either way they tased great.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
