Lots of public land in southern Minnesota.

Find a chunk near water. Later in the day set your sillohettes in the trees and be ready for some fun. I'd recommend giving it a try a few times before you drop coin on a guide.

I don't know of any Dove guides in my area, sorry.

No guides around here for doves, but if you want to come dove hunting with me in Texas, I can find you all kinds of guides. Boiler gave some good advice, find a wheat field near some water, late afternoon and set up a couple branches with some decoy doves on it. Also gravel pits near grasslands are good too.

If you travel to southern MN you should have no problem shooting doves, a guide is not nessecary. Iv had no problem shooting a limit of doves the last couple of years just pass shooting. They are literally everywhere, and every year im hunting a different spot. Find a field they are feeding in, a water hole with no vegetation around the edge, or a group of trees they are roosting in and you got yourself a shoot. I like to set up between a roosting spot and a feeding area, or a watering hole and a feeding area and pass shoot. Late afternoon and morning/mid-morning seem to be best.

Yep, we have tons of them down here. A friend was out driving the countryside and took this photo.

    •   Then I wonder if they'll go back to the old way.
    •   Melt.   They should invite Obama and do a real roast of Donny boy.  
    • 6 million dollars per mile.    Oh My. Did Mexico cut the check for the down payment yet?  Has Merkel cut a check to Nato yet?    
    •   Plus+ 1 the carb. It's filling up the crank case with gas. After you clean or rebuild the carb tip it on the side with the plug out to drain the crank before trying to start it. Or if it's going to be a while take the plug out now and may be the gas will evap a bit by the time you get at the repair. good luck and let us know how it went. That was my first ATC.  
    • Ovi sure makes it look easy out there. What a beast.
    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
