Just scouted our lease south of I-20 off SH 108. Saw virtually no birds in the fields or on the wires. Were a hundred or so white wings around the tanks. Stayed until it got dark hoping tweed see more flying.

What is everybody else seeing?

80 to 90% less dove in the last 10 days in N DFW
Got one place that had 600 white wings last week, now down to 250

Soo much food everywhere, soo much water...

Weird.

I guess they did not like the 61 degrees in the morning 2 weeks ago... I know thats it!

I've seen a few at my public spots but not the numbers like last year. One private spot is loaded. Fields are more cotton in my area and lots of ponds have water that were dry last year

I saw more birds today than I've been seeing. I was starting to get discouraged.

Drove into San Antonio from Houston last week. 20 miles east of San Antonio would have given argentina a run for the money. Never seen so many dove. Too bad my lease doesn't look like that. Definitely jealous of the SA folks.

Saw a couple thousand birds in Waco (in town) last Friday. Went out to some of my spots outside of town and saw very few

I think that's why people are seeing less birds. A lot of the mud hole ponds that were dry the last couple of years have some water, and the farmers just put down a bunch of feed in all of the corn/milo fields...I don't think they've gone anywhere...just scattered. I'm still seeing plenty to get me up early on Monday morning, that's for sure!

Sorry couldn't resist. Our spot is looking as good as ever. Lots flying this year. Opener is always great. Slows down a bunch but it's always fun on a bucket with buddies regardless.

Harvested 600 acres of milo on three fields a few weeks ago on the Brazos and no birds yet. Drove through the place Sunday (granted, it was mid-day) and kicked up one flight of about a dozen. This is in Falls County. LOTS of whitewings in Waco....once you get South of Loop 340 they shut off like a faucet.

Saw about a zillion white wings driving through Wharton on 59 at 5:45 tonight. Holy crap there were a lot of doves. It was hard to drive and not watch the birds...

OK in the AM, better in the evenings in Young Co.(Not great).Still way dry here, need rain. Also pollen and ragweed is bad. Visiting hunters remember to get your allergy meds if you need em.

Did a little fishing in a local Frisco pond last night around 7:30pm. Saw several groups of 15-20. Big ole fat ones.

Love this pic... but isn't baiting illegal?

Or are those naturally scattered sunflower seeds?
