Well, dove season started yesterday. Against my better judgement we set up at a waterhole first thing. 4 of us had ten doves by noon. The afternoon was to be spent at a different waterhole with some friends. This is when the problems started. We arrived at the waterhole and it's obvious a couple of the boys had been hitting the aiming oil pretty good. And the brought there friends too. Some of them bragged about shooting 3" 6s at doves because they were tough and could take the kick. Instead of 4-5 guys there ended up being 15. 15 guys around 2 small ponds. My brother and I took great pains to get as far away from the drunks as we could. Forgot about the teenager 40 yards away. Dove comes flying into the pond between the kid and I. I hollered don't shoot just as he cut loose. Yep, he got me. Arrogant little jerk told me I should have ducked. Anyway we left and went back to town. The to the ER to see if any pellets had gotten imbedded. The hospital had to call the law. I guess those boys are still trying to figure how to get out of this pickle. Seems 3 got DUI's. Plus they told the kid he could go to jail for shooting me. He gave them the same excuse, I should have ducked. No remorse at all. Never again will I hunt with more than 3 other people, and teenagers will be monitored very closley, providing I hunt with them at all. Thanks for letting me vent, John.
