I noticed recently that both Academy and Walmart appear to be gearing up for Dove Season. And I'm sure the shelves will get stocked even more as the weeks pass.

I couldn't resist but to buy a bag of seed last night at Academy. Thankfully, seed producers are required by law to list exactly what seed is in the bag and how much of it. I noticed quite a few that contained mostly rye grass.

So then, have you started gearing up yet?

ABSOLUTELY... I love when the first ad's come in each year... Bass Pro last night, Academy, Dicks... even Gander Mountain.... I spent more time walking the isles at lunch when I can than anything else.... Some people pay a therapist... I go to the hunting sections and enjoy picking a few things here and there.... Shot Gun Shells stocked up... a wind detector and a few small things yesterday.... I get downright Giddy this time of year.

Yes, women get a fix by buying a new purse or pair of shoes. We get out fix with every outdoors purchase.

Loc: Temple...Hunt in Freestone Co.
I think the last time I bought anything for dove season was 2 years ago when I got a couple of cases of shells and one of the belts with pockets. The game vest got a little toasty the season before, so a new belt it was. Unfortunately I don't have a reliable place to dove hunt, so I normally just go with my neighbor when he goes out to his dad's place..and he's not much of a hunter, so 4-5 times a year?

Now to prep for deer season is a whole different story. If my wife knew how much I've spent from the end of last season until now in preps for deer season, she'd have a heart attack. roflmao Finally got my custom bolt gun finished, new to me blind, new to me Kawasaki Mule (plus tires/wheels, lift, building a roof), new feeder motor box, just to name a few. Dang, putting it all into a list is a bit of a wake up call for this year crazy

Pre season what? I hunt year round and buy stuff year round. I do need to get a new license though.
