Dove hunting around Austin help - 07/30/14 12:21 AM

Anyone have dove hunting property available or leads to property around Austin? I am new to the area and don't have anywhere close to dove hunt. I would love to lease a sunflower field or any other property that attracts dove. Any help from my fellow dove hunters will be greatly appreciated.

Anywhere on the t.u. Campus would be a fine place to hunt!

That is true but they might frown on that because I bleed maroon.

There's a few on craigslist right now pretty soon you should see a lot pop up on there around the 130 pflugerville/ hutto area. I've been thinking about trying one of those out this year

Old man Kuempel leases a lot of land around Pville and Hutto. He's prolly one of those numbers that were listed. You should know though that his returning clients get choice of the best fields. I know some cats that leased property as a group or just day leased on one of his day fields and it was pathetic. Whatever you do, make sure you have the lease/land owner meet you at a field(s) so that you can see for yourself what is what. If it is a piece of land shared with others it's gonna be a fustercluck, especially around Pville and Hutto area. I live in Falcon Pointe (near the 45/130 toll intersection) and in Pflugerville for nearly 20 years and I have watched the decline of what used to be some of the best dove, especially whitewing, shooting in the state. Sure there are a few fields that still are flight lines with a little food on them but many have succumbed to development over the years. I used to run leases out here for 10 years and it just is what it is I guess. frown

I run thru there daily and see tons of flights going across 130. Thought about knocking on some doors out that way since it's on my way home from work.

Thanks for the heads up
