Field continues to progress beautifully, some heads are almost the size of dinner plates. Massive for dryland field.

Pictures from July 18th show how good the field is coming along. Head turn down is about complete.

Opening days of SWWS has a couple spots available, same with 7th & 8th.

Field will be awesome come dove season, now just need birds & hunters!!!!

30 minutes from downtown SA, easy to get to & get home

$75 per half day, $100 if want to hunt morning & afternoon.

Field continues to look great. Have some spots for SWWS but not many.

Birds are roaming and looking for fields in the area. Things are looking good.

$75 afternoon, $100 full day on south zone season.

Saturday's SWWS hunt was pretty good, Sunday was poor for WW. Lots & lots of mourning dove coming to field.

Opening day, 14th is Full. We'll hunt the 17th or 18th, (17th most likely, 3 spots reserved) 21st, (no spots reserved yet), 24th, & 28th for September. Have spots for 24th & 28th

Expect a 75% mourn-25% WW ratio on open hunts. every hunt has seen &/or killed Asian collared dove.

September is going to be good, October will be outstanding as birds move south & crops get eaten up.

5 person limit of mourning dove (one was a self imposed 11 bird limit) in under 2 hours Saturday October 26th afternoon hunt. Only reason 2 hours to limit was the shooting skills.

Absolutely ridiculous number of birds in and coming to the field. Near LaCoste less than 30 minutes from downtown SA.

Hunting last day Nov 3rd afternoon $75 a gun. Have a few spots available

Can't but expect the bird numbers to continue to be outstanding with as much sunflower we have on the stalk and knocked down. Field has been rested since last hunt.

Had 4 hunters for the last afternoon of the first split season Sunday Nov 3rd.

4 hunter limit included a few WW, (a bit surprising for November). Hunters saw 3-4 collared asian doves but the hunters were not sure they were doves & didn't shoot.

Longest a hunter took to limit was under 3 hours. Unbelievable number of birds.

We expect the second split Dec 20th-Jan 23rd) to be on fire with birds.

$75 a gun, we max at 10 hunters per hunt.

Several days second split are booked or close to being full.

Holler want to get on some fantastic second season dove hunting.

Short videos shot while doing check up on the field. Sorry for the poor video'ing.

Multiple groups like this in the field and sitting up in Huisache & willows next to field. More birds now than end of 1st split.

Outstanding number of dove in the field, including a strong number of WW for first hunt of second split, Saturday Dec 21st..

6 hunters, 3 limits, one hunter took 12 birds before stopping due to trigger issue, and two hunters, a 1st time dove hunter & a 4th time dove hunter took 20 birds total before running out of shells. They shot 18 boxes of shells.

Bird numbers were unbelievable. Dec 28th has 3 hunters, Jan 4th is tentatively full, other weekend dates have multiple spots open.

Sunday Dec.22nd 8 limits of dove, mournings, a fair amount of WW, and a bonus Ringneck by 8 hunters, including a repeat THF hunter. Had hunters shaking their head at the number of dove hitting the field.

Only weekend tentatively full is Sat Jan 4th, other weekends days have spots reserved but still lots of open spots.

Sat. Jan 4th has reopened & currently has 3 spots reserved. Sunday 5th is open
11th & 19th have spots reserved but still spots available.

Dec 28th &29th were harder hunts due to weather. Lots of birds on 28th until wind shifted to N. Birds seemed to roost up.
Hunters took up to 10 birds but hunt was weird to watch.
Sunday 29th wind was strong from N 20-30, 10 hunters took 2 limits, several 12 bird , couple in the 10 range, 3 late arrives took 8 , a youth took 6 birds. Tough hunt due to wind, but lots of birds.

We have lots of birds & weather looks outstanding for the weekend

Saturday Jan 4th bird numbers were not insane but very good to bordering on great. Only 4 hunters so birds found the seams getting into the field. Hunters took 9, 8, 8, and 7 birds. Lower numbers taken was more of positioning hunters than bird numbers. Again bird numbers were very good just not as awesome as Friday, the 3rd. Still taking a few WW along with random Asian collared dove seen & sometimes taken.

Just have to toot our own horn a bit.

Final hunt of 2019-20 season, 8 hunters took 81 birds, all mentioned they "should have limited" if they didn't. Ask THF member cleboje who found us for the last hunt first split and hunted with us 4 times from Nov 3rd til Jan 19th.how the hunting was.

We had a fantastic year on a nice sized piece of property less than 30 minutes from downtown SA.

Edit mis-added the numbers Roughly 670 birds taken by 76 total hunters. 9 bird average, numbers are a bit skewed due to SWWS hunt weekends being pretty dang slow w/low WW numbers.Take out the SWWS we averaged 13 birds a person.

Record # of shots one hunt was 2 hunters 18 boxes, 450 shells to take 20 birds. Best was hunter took limit w/23 shots. Wasn't TOO.

Expect a similar if not better year in 20-21& hope folks will stop by shoot a bunch of birds and have great time.

Thanks to cleboje & the other THF hunters that took the time to hunt with us.
