It looks like many folks over here in Young county have their dove fields shredded already. I'm not seeing as many as I did last year from the road. I drove over to Knox City this morning and it didn't seem like there were many birds in the air over the fields by Throckmorton, Seymour, or Munday. What are y'all seeing out there?

I've started seeing increased numbers but not much. Nothing like recent past years.

I usually see tons of birds crossing my area but this year not near as many. They must be waiting on the storm to pass.


Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

Speaking for Knox & Baylor .. it seems our birds got pushed out with cool front a couple weeks ago.. was thinking we would have fresh birds riding ahead of this front but no such luck.. a little concerned .. hope they will be here soon ...

About as many birds as I've ever seen here south of Breckenridge. We've missed all the rain the past couple of weeks and our fields have stayed dry. All the power lines around here look like this in the mornings.

I'm hoping Harvey keeps the dove penned into north Texas next week!

Anyone seeing any around Hamilton or Evant? Last year there were't many due to early spring crops getting flooded out

Hamilton used to be a great area for Dove hunting.

Breckenridge this morning, their still here. Went to Albany to pick of feed and a lot of the fields over there are standing in water. They got a lot more rain than I have the past couple of weeks. These pics were taken this morning at my driveway.

Texas Parks and Wildlife replied to my e=mail asking about Dove Hunting this year. They said not to expect a very good year and that Harvey has virtually guaranteed a poor season. There may be a few exception areas in North Texas and the Panhandle.

I had to go to Snyder today. I saw the most dove on fields north of Rule. Did not see many West or east of there. I have been seeing some white wings coming over my place in Young county.
