Opening weekend was hit and miss, sounds like mostly miss. Is the season over or will this cold front tomorrow bring some fresh faces to shoot at??

Kinda weird so far.

We hunted between Stamford and Haskell and had easy limits both days, I had a limit Sunday before they started flying good. I guess it just depends on where you were.

Olney wasn't very good after Friday morning. Hopefully some northern birds will come down soon.

I'm between Haskell and Stamford and it's the slowest it's been in 3 yrs. It's never been like this. We 're getting birds but not like normal by any means.

Yup hunted Near possum kingdom opening day- was decent not great. Seems like spots closer to cities this year have been Key. Hunted last night and today in Collin County 35 miles from home and smoked them pretty good. Mainly whitewing and Eurasians. About 15% morning Dove- obviously City birds.

Saw plenty of birds around us. Just either 60 yards up or to far away.

We were just east of Haskell by a mile or two. Had a decent morning opener. Nowhere near normal for the area. We heard a group shooting non-stop for a couple of hours. I guess we just missed'em. No whitewings for three days which was strange.

I hunted just west of Stamford on opening morning. The morning hunt was better than expected. 3 or 4 guys with limits. That afternoon was pretty slow.

Southern Brown County - very few birds flying. We didn't even bother going out Saturday evening. Only heard a couple of shots all that evening.

Some of my best dove hunts are in October. That's when the big charcoal colored birds show up from points north.
Most of the time it's just me and the dog.

Hunted just south of OH Ivie Reservoir (45mi east of San Angelo) and it was pretty decent. Close to limits for all hunters.
