Sorry for the title, I accidentally hit enter before I finished fixing it. Should read "It's at least a start" Alright, so I went out for doves this morning, after limited scouting. Sure enough I found them where I expected, the only problem was, they were all already to the spot before shooting light. After 20 minutes of none flying in I got impatient and walked through trying to flush them, they all flushed either too far, or right toward the road and river, directions which I couldn't shoot. Anyway, I got to see 30 or more, without getting a shot. Finally got one to circle back after flushing it, and made the shot. 1 for 1 - I should quit while I'm ahead. Slow, frustrating morning, but at least I broke in my newly acquired shotgun by hitting a bird. Anyone else have any luck out there on doves or grouse?
