Do any of you guys hunt dove? My relatives own 8,000 acres around Beloit but I don't have anywhere in short driving distance of Kc or Topeka.A couple years ago there were so many doves it was like the Ho Chi Minh trail. No matter how many of the little boogers you dropped they just kept coming.I hunkered down behind a hay bale and waited between 2 fields of sunflowers. When a couple flew over and I blasted them hundreds and hundreds of doves came out of both fields. I was shooting for my own self defense. Ever seen the Hitchcock movie the birds. It was like Argentina or something. The statute of limitations has not run out yet so I can't give the death toll. But now nobody around there is growing any sunflowers.There are a couple of good state areas by Glen Elder.But the last couple of years have stunk there. Didn't even go there last year. I limited out a couple of times at the state sunflower plot north of La Cygne lake. All the pressure ran the birds off quickly. But it is on my way to Pleasonton so we did the cast and blast routine 5-6 times. Go real early in the mornig stop by for an hour shoot a few doves, go catch 50 or 60 channel cats at pleasonton and stop back by for the evenig hunt for an hour or so. My wife says "You aren't just gonna leave your boat and all your fishing gear on the road in the middle of nowhere are you?" Well I'm sitting on a bucket 30 yards away with a loaded Benelli 12 gauge I'd feel sorry for the thief that tries to mess with it? If anybody wants to go/ has any spots close by we can hook up. I had to get rid of my big truck so I got a little bitty car that gets 35 mpg.
