3 hunters took 30 birds in the morning hunt with plenty of misses. it was my daughters first dove hunt and she hit a double banded bird worth $100 according to the golden band. 2 of the birds I shot where banded as well but not golden bands. Numbers seem a little low this year but i have noticed that sometimes the opener is lighter than the next couple of weeks.

Thatís awesome! Congrats to you and your daughter! What county were you hunting in?

Had a few shots at some stragglers yesterday in some public lands by George, but didn't hit any. Neither did the two other hunters in the field. Was down by lower crab creek today and surprised a flock tucked away behind a tree on a phone line, but didn't see any more all morning.

This is my first year hunting so was wondering if I was doing something wrong, but sounds like other people aren't seeing many birds as well.

I went Saturday evening to scout my spot and set up a little blind on my side of the property line from my neighbors weed patch I hunt over. I dont know where they have been hiding but there were probably 20 doves on the power wire with another dozen on the ground. Also I saw a covey of a dozen quail I hadn't seen all summer. Cool.

Got out early on Sunday, had gun problems, had to retreat to the truck to get the back up gun, a single shot 20 gauge for which I only had 18 shells for. I blasted through those in a couple hours and got 4.

Like I say, i dont know where they have been all this time but I saw a steady stream of them flying yesterday morning. I think I might try again this evening.

Well, I got 1 dove last night and 0 tonight.  Figured I would go check my turkey spot, since it's close to my dove spot and season is open, and got 2 turkeys! 
Right wing shooter, I aim for the left!!!

Nowhere in your incoherent rambling did you come close to what can be considered a rational thought. Everyone is now dumber having heard it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.

We had a great shoot last night. Did not limit, but we had a blast. There were a lot of birds flying. I take pride in being pretty efficient with a shotgun, but these little tricksters are very humbling!  :chuckle:

Got our limits Sunday evening and Monday morning but had to grind to get them

We were in Basin City area

Seems that birds were holding in the Russian olive trees and were reluctant to move in the heat of the late afternoon

Also noted that there was a lot of corn still up with local farmers maybe a couple of weeks behind schedule

If the weather holds with no big temperature drops, season may improve through end of month

Birds didnt want to fly this morning till the heat from the rising sun got them going, then it only lasted an hour and that was it as a breeze picked up. Got 4 birds on 8 shots. Pretty good shooting for me!

PLEASE post a pic of these bands.
Also have her(your daughter) report them and she'll receive a USGS certifcate telling where that bird or (s) where originally banded. I harvested one back in 2004 and it came all the way from the EAST COAST!!!
