    Welcome to the BOC, both will work, i have hunted doves outta both and have had luck. I would say that milo will work better, it seems that the doves like to come to them more.

    Good luck

    I would prolly watch a day or so and see which they were using. Sunflower is also great or a newly sown wheat field. Also, welcome to the BOC

    yeah when they sow the winter wheat, it's game on! another good crop to hunt on is sunflowers or millet. either one is better than corn or milo, as is the wheat. i don't hunt either corn or milo, because i want the pheasants to be there come december! :wink:

    I like finding a water hole near a huge patch of WILD sunflowers myself,I think it's a preferred forage for them around here.,Little more than a month and we will be complaining of shooters shoulder .:roll_eyes::smile2::smile2:

    I have good luck over harvested fields of corn and milo in Texas. Sunflower fields are very good as are water holes when its dry. Doves are where you find them. Catfishjon

    i like finding ponds out in the middle of a grassy field. aint gotta be any special kinda grass, just a bunch of weeds. anyway my buddys got one of these ponds on 70 acres of ground and the end of the 70 acres he got a milo field on both sides that make really good dove hunting.lotta ditchweed in the area too lol
