No question, those are the most misunderstood and frequently debated words when it comes to dove hunting. While some might call it a gray area when it comes to interpretation, others see it plain and clear. If there is clear evidence that whatever you're hunting over was put there to feed livestock or create a harvest, you're good.

My best dove hunt ever was in a soybean field a few days after it was harvested. They were leftover beans everywhere and plenty of birds trying to clean them up. With a harvest having been completed, it was completely legal to hunt the field.

On the other hand, it costs me a $350 fine for hunting a field that a guy thought he had prepared in such a way that it would be legal to hunt over. He had disked the area well and scattered a lot of seeds over it. With so many of the seeds being uncovered, it was obvious his intention wasn't to plant a crop, but to attract doves.

Well hopefully he reimbursed you for your fine for his negligence.

It was a friend of the friend that invited me to the hunt. My friend also had his new boss with him at the time. Not a good way to begin a working relationship.

If that's a normal practice by those who plant sunflowers, who can cry foul?

Each hunter is responsible to ensure for themselves that the field is legal to hunt.

Even with the fine, we got our money's worth that day. Had a great time and watched my Bulldogs beat the Longhorns in nearby Starkvegas. banana

You planted a crop at the appropriate time, which is a normal agricultural practice.
