anyone around here dove hunt? i love it as much as i do deer hunting. there seems to be a lack of interest on the forums tho, maybe just because they are way outta season? just wondering!

I LOVE dove season.. It symbolizes the "start of fall" to me... I have been very fortunate to be invited every year to what is usually a very successful dove hunt.. Although I love dove hunting, I usually just go the opening weekend, sometimes the second weekend..

Not much of a dove hunter myself cause they are not my favorite to eat. Not to say they can't be good, just not up there with guail, squirrel, rabbit to me.

It is mostly a social thing for me.

Been along time since I've went after doves. Use to be one of my favorite seasons too. Ponds in the evenings was my favorite place to sit.

I'm only 45 or so, minutes from the Coffeeville area
I have a double caplock 12 bore, a 12 bore flinter and a 62 cal (20 ga) smoothy flintlock.
I'll be more than happy to bring all the guns/powder/shot and let your clan enjoy the fun
A nice dove shoot will teach you to "load fast/shoot slow"
or better yet "Aim Small Hit Small"

One thing I've learned about the old guns, take them around a group of hunters and get ready to teach them how to use them.

Rabbit hunting 2 weeks ago the modern gun shooters were letting us shoot first until they realized we weren't that handicapped :)

Lab? I thought that's what younguns' was for. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Mine are grown and gone now, maybe I need a lab. I do love to dove hunt especially for the social aspect. I moved from central Ms to Sw Ms at Brookhaven and have yet to find a place to hunt but I'm still looking.

I'm not really into doves as they're very small compared to our rural wood pigeon which is twice the size so i am used to harvesting a lot of meat.

Doves are certainly good to eat. I like the breast slow cooked and smothered in gravy.

A good dove hunt when there are plenty of birds flying is great fun. Hate to know how many boxes of shells I have fired at doves however! Think my average might be close to one box per bird. :D

If you are hunting with a group of responsible hunters who really are there to hunt doves, the social activity is certainly a benefit. Unfortunately a lot of dove hunting sometimes degenerates and I for one don't like to be around people who mix alcohol and firearms for instance.

But if anyone in the Central MS area gets a good dove hunt going, let me know. I'm up for it.
