On Monday, in many places, dove season will get started to open the fall hunting season.  If you have never had the opportunity to hunt doves, you owe it to yourself to get with some guys who know their way around the dove field.  It is so much fun to be out with the guys or the family and spend Labor Day hunting these birds.  By the way, they taste pretty good!

Before you go out remember these things;

  1. Clean your gun and remove any oil from the barrel before you shoot.
  2. Make sure you take your choke tubes and wrench.
  3. OFF.  There are still ticks around.
  4. Don’t shoot when someone calls a low bird.
  5. Maintain your muzzle awareness in the field.  Don’t get careless talking to your friends.
  6. Bring a good seat.  You will be glad you did after waiting to get started.
  7. Make sure you have the proper license for your state.  Many hunting licenses don’t cover bird hunting.
  8. Bring a cooler full of drinks (no alcohol stupid!).
  9. Clean up your hulls and other trash when you are finished.

Hope everyone has a safe weekend.
