    Default Dove Field

    Had a lot of migratory birds come in today. 5 of us shooting couldn't keep them stirred up. They'd come in in groups and light in the middle of the field. All we bagged were big birds.........Before we went onto the field there were 8 long beards out in it feeding.......After Tuesday it'll be all theirs!

    Three of us shot my field one last time today. I killed 9 and missed some EASY shots. Again all big migratory birds. Next week I start prepping the field for next year. Hunting and preparing for hunting is a year round endevor.

    What do you do to prep field. Turn it over? And about what time are you sewing corn?

    I have bottom plowed and harrowed the areas I'm going to plant. Next will be lime. I plant the corn with a 2 row "Cole" planter 2 weeks before Good Friday...Corn will tolerate some cold with no damage. I plant Roundup resistant corn and spray it with Roundup until its to high for my tractor to go down the rows.

    Pretty good shoot kaboomer. How many shoots did you get in? Would love to have a field like that. Used to have a place close to the house I could go down in the evening after work with the retriever and work her. Kill 5 or 6 for her and back to the house. She liked it.

    We shot every Saturday during the seasons. Sometimes everybody didn't show up and we had them lighting in the field. Good in the beginning. Kind of a lull in the middle. Good the last segment. Burning the field really made difference the last season. Birds are still coming to the burned areas that I haven't cut under. Hope they have put the location in their little "gps's" for the fall!
