I'm wary of these guys that offer a lease. I accepted an offer to go with some guys at work a few years ago. They took me out to a place outside Godley. We got there about 4 am. Pitch black, but the land owner? was there at the gate taking our money. Hmmm. Once the sun came up I realized that there must have been 200 guns surrounding this 100 acre field. Had a miserable day and only downed one bird.

That's sad and kinda funny.
You've got to either know your outfitter OR you've got to scout the field before opening day.

Yup. I felt like I needed a flak jacket. I was so mad I almost sold all my hunting gear.

I haven't been dove hunting in Texas for over 10 yrs since losing access to a friends farm out by Santo. He had to sell the place, and to be honest it was never real good. I drive around scouting some, but am worried about trespassing. I've been traveling all the way to Western Missouri for opening week for a few years now. Limited 2 days in a row the last two years so I can't complain, but it sure would like to find something closer to home.
I had rotator cuff surgery the first week of May and still in physical therapy for that, and bought a new Beretta A400 to celebrate. I hope to be ready by Sept 1st.

The Beretta will make it a lot easier on your shoulder if you find something to shoot at

Last year I hunted a specific APH property that a buddy stumbled onto. It was exceptionally productive both times we went. He'd done some scouting, the spot was near grain and sunflowers with easy access to water. I was suprised at how many birds we saw. And no other hunters on both days.

Yep, I see it all the time, these "dove outfitters" see $$$$$ signs and take anyone's money without care of how many go in a field. My outfitter last years was GOLD, I'm sure mine this year will be too.

One year with Webfoot Connection, there were so many hunters everywhere, at dinner that night I asked the head guy if he wanted me to call for some more hunters, he gave me stink eye.

The way I see it is that the main problem with signing up for a lease on a landowners property is, most of the time there probably isn't going to be a lot of birds. At least that's been my experience.

Last year I drove down to Mertens to one of Texas' public hunting grounds and it was a joke. No grain being grown or harvested anywhere near the place. No water. The designated hunting ground itself was just a mesquite thicket in a gully. I guess if you wanted to hunt rattlesnakes it might be a good spot, but not for bird hunting. It was laid out like KOA campground. Cutouts every 20 ft or so. Thanks but no thanks.

I tell ya guys I am really worried about our sport going forward. Big money interests are making it difficult for us little guys. If you're not a millionaire you're slowly being priced out of hunting as a sport. We need to get and keep the young folks interested in hunting and shooting sports, but if there is no place to do it we're doomed.
