Keeping my fingers crossed that they multiply.

You could literally not reload fast enough, it was non stop groups of 30 to 100 birds. A real barrel burner.

Fast forward 24 yrs, and my oldest Son is now married to his daughter and they made us Grandpas LOL. It's a small world.

We did the special white wing zone last year in Uvalde opening weekend next to a sunflower field, the hunting wasn't as good as being on the field but damn those white wing would come from everywhere.

Dang right, even took a nap after lunch, and I don't take naps. 1.1" of rain and we sure needed it.
I'm taking the day off tomorrow.

Stompy to answer your question, I am in Hamilton County. We used to have lots of dove. Last three or four years has been terrible. Just a few isolated pockets. My place tends to be in one of those pockets but it’s still been really tough. Usually they would just come to my dad‘s wheatfields as he was sewing, but that doesn’t seem to work anymore.
