Dog numbers? confused2 Don't you just love auto correct roflmao


There is time, and you must take it, to lay your hand on your dog's head as you walk past him lying on the floor or on his settle, time to talk with him, to remember with him, time to please him, time you can't buy back once he's gone" GBE

Not many dogs, few dove, it's still hot and early out west... Our Grayson/Fannin leases are beginning to look better... was worried early, not so much now

See these posts every year. Ducks, Dove, migratory birds. WAAAAAY too early. A front can blow in night before and kick 90% of birds out. If there is food and water, they will come. That and weather is 99% of formula. Obviously, Hunting pressure can affect numbers as well but not in this context

At one of my fields this morning there were about 35 small mourning doves on the power lines. Latest hatch I suppose.
Always start seeing more once I start cutting fields.

They incubates 14 to 20 days; the male incubates during the day and female at night. Male and females look the same, so you think it is the same dove but it is not. They can have up to 6 hatches a year.

Drove from Frisco to Boerne/Comfort last weekend

Still very green, hay was abundant and most fields ready to cut again.

Sunflowers looked GREAT

Around guadalupe and wilson counties i feel like i'm seeing more this time now than i was last year but not seeing tons and still a lot could change. Just starting to harvest grain around us, maybe should stir things up some. Still a month for the season though too. Wet fields locally might keep some grain in the field longer and make for better birds.

My guide this year in Haskell sent some pics to a friend I'm hunting with this year and his fields were covered in dove. This was last week.
