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.

    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
    • Here's the exact reason why I encourage everyone to buy the digital readout.  After getting holes drilled and everything setup, I always run my bathroom roof fan/vent to get rid of the moisture as the slush on the floor gets melted.  Yesterday I cranked the fan on max which moves some serious air, but I forgot to crack a window, which caused it to actually suction the CO from my water heater back into the house through a propane line pass through.  I looked up and saw 30ppm on the CO detector, which isn't high, but an indicator that something wasn't right.  All it took was cracking a window and turning down the fan for a minute and it was back to 0.  
    • You do realize the person you wanted to be president couldn't even understand the proper protocol for setting up a cabinet level email account don't you?    
    • I looked into fiberglass a few years back for a build.  I decided against it as it needed a wood backer.  Not sure if there is a different product out there now.  
    • finally got out Friday, put on 75 miles in the heavy drizzle, not the first time I have riden in the rain. the trails were OK, I rode in aitkin co. that doubles the miles I put on in the last two years.
    • they load tested the battery and said it was bad, everything else they said was fine, they put in a new battery. tried it today after sitting since Tuesday, and it started up fine, problem fixed.   I have a 2002 grizz carbed, and that sat for close to 3 months, went to start it this weekend, and it cranked for at least a minute (very cold blooded machine) and it started, it has the same battery that's in the Polaris.
    • Precious snowflake Trump needs a safe space from the media apparently.   I suggest you familiarize yourself with the word kakistocracy, because that appears to be the road we will be traveling down.
    • No,I am saying those who are left with jobs are working for those who Obama is happy to give money to for nothing. He was as bad as it gets in terms of getting people back to work after a recession especially when you factor in the amount of money he spent to do it.
