Dove season off with a bang-bang-bang…

Two days gone intp the new dove season and reports from the field are pretty good. From Garden City to Columbus I’ve had friends call with tales of limits.

Opening morning at the McPherson Wetlands sunflower field found more than 60 vehicles worth of hunters banging away.

A few guys hunting feed fields have reported the birds are pretty scattered because so much corn had been chopped or combined already. Folks on ponds have been doing pretty well.

Some years doves are the most often harvested game animal in Kansas. This will probably be one of those years thanks to high dove and low pheasant populations.

This afternoon Jerrod and I are headed west for a waterhole hunt with buddy Tom Turner. Hopefully the rains in the forecast will come, but hopefully not until after we’re done for the day.

Have a good weekend
