always wanted to try it i love bird hunting and grouse and pheasant only provide so many shooting opportunites
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Personally, I have never tried it, but my father and law and his retired buddies go every year. Sounds like fun but they usually hunt weekdays something I have been unable to do. Maybe this year though I am out of work with nothing but time.

Default dove hunting

I tell you their is no dout that a dove is the hardest thing that flies to hit, no matter how much you practice on clay targets, other game birds, theres nothing that comes close to the speed an agility of a dove its like they can see the bird shot coming an they twist an spin dart an dive right out of the way but what fun it is trying to kill one.

Dove hunting rocks! My mother always used to take me when I was younger. She loves to tell the story of how when she and my father were dating, two doves were flying at them. She said I will take the one on the left(she was using a break open 410) and you shoot the other one(he was using a pump 12 guage). He unloaded his gun to no avail. In the mean time, she dropped her bird, reloaded and got his too. She never let him live this one down. Sorry dad.
