How is everyone else's season going? Where can I find more birds in the N West Ft worth area?

I had the same problem bud, paid good money for a lease and scored for about 1 day of it, and that's all she wrote, up near Ray Roberts for me... Been Slooooowwwww..... which is disappointing, since i haven't hunted dove for 10 plus years in South Texas, and this was the year i was getting back into it, up here....

If it's one of those all you can eat dove leases with a ton of members, those get shot out first weekend.

This is true. But don't give it up like most do. I've had really good hunts (limits or close) on big leases in October over the years after a couple of fronts. I see no reason this year would be any different. Just gotta find em again.

What happens is all the resident dove get shot which leaves you with no birds until a front pushes more in. Dove don't grow on trees, they are just raised in them. More will come, they tend to move 2 days before a front and don't stick around longer than 48 hours

Every dove in the state is on a 2500 acre place just southeast of Pearsall, TX. Probably not worth the drive, though, for a lot of folks since 3 to 4 hours of driving only results in about 30 minutes of shooting until limits are achieved. Best year I've ever had down here.

There is a butt load of birds here right now. Did some scouting this morning and every one of my fields has good birds. Got a few hunters coming in this afternoon, I'll post some pics if they can hit them.

If I didn't have to work tomorrow morning I'd be trying to get you on the phone and head your way.

I noticed a large push in bird on Wednesday. North wind is blowing so they must have caught a ride.
My hunters took quick limits this morning.
