My friend Harlon Winters , who had a dog training place outside of Burnet, had a neighbor about 2-3 miles down the road. The guy dumped most of a dump truck of milo/grain into his fields to attract doves. None of the neighbors had any doves , they were all going to the buffet at this guy's place. So the neighbors turned him in to the game warden. Harlon drove up to his place ( 3 miles away from the grain) and there was a sign on his gate declaring no hunting on this property because of the grain down the road.
The next year the guy did not put out the grain
The 3rd year he did and no one turned him in because they could not hunt on their property if they did.
The law of unintended consequences.

So if there is grain, nobody in 3 (or more?) miles can hunt?

2 or 3 mile radius seems excessive.

I wonder if you only shot eurasian/collared dove if that would matter.

There is a thread under Migratory Birds debating this right now. The conclusion at this point I believe is that the way the law is written there is no stated distance from bait where you can 100% safely hunt. Any situation whether it be 3 miles away or 300 yards is up to the discretion of the Game Warden. So the only conclusion I can come up with is just to try to use common sense and hope that you don't get an unreasonable GW coming around.

Also can't hunt in the flyaways. Whatever that definition is. It could be argued that wherever a dove flys is technically a flyway.

All I'll say is the state and I will have a long talk in the courtroom if they decide to shut me down because of something a neighbor did. I did know an old boy who planted a bunch of sunflowers and then hunted over them and the state did shut him down. Since he not only had no intentions of harvesting them nor the equipment it was declared baiting. This was almost 40 years ago.

An unreasonable GW.
