Here in Breckenridge, TX the doves are flying, but sparsely, hoping this picks up for next weekend. My buddy in Kansas says it is completely dead up there, disappointed. Anyone else care to share?

Not even seeing much in the corn fields we've cut the past 10 days & some of the freeze damaged low spots have 8-9' high sunflowers..

Pretty slow. I did see a few more birds this morning but if we get any of the rain they are predicting for this weekend I am sure those will be gone too.

I will take the rain and hunt them in October!

Well, that's depressing. Let's hope by some miracle it picks up for next weekend.

I went out and saw 2/3 of the birds I had been seeing which was already 1/2 of what I saw before the opener last year

Not to worry. When opening gets here they will get all stirred up and be flying like crazy. At least that's what the land owner told me....... confused2

Lol, heard that one before.


The first lease I ever got on was about 20 years ago. Me, a friend and the landowner drove the fields about 5pm and did not see squat. The landowner says, when everyone starts shooting the birds will go in every direction. Well they missed a direction. I will never forget those words again. So if you hear it.

Shooting isn't going to create more birds....but it can pay off hunting in a spot that might not look great today...some place where there are fewer hunters....because they're going to ultimately try to find a place where they aren't getting shot at.

The landowner is more worried about the dough, not the dove. He dont care less.
Never seen a landowner with a gun hunting on his property. EVER!

Flying pretty good, here. Nothing exceptional, but plenty for a few limits.

Oh dear. If everyone could post up their city with their report that would be useful.

Usually I'd say let's check with some of the okies as to what's coming down our way, but I don't know any myself (do they have the internet there?). But, Kansas doesn't look good.

Stormline will hit Ok, kansas and parts of N Texas on friday morning from west to east.


Will be interesting to see what it does.

Well, if rain is what they want to avoid, Texas is probably their best bet smile
