In case anyone is interested , today is the first day to apply for dove permits .
Good luck my friend .............
I have to be going on 5 years w/o my 1st choice for dove hunting . Who knows maybe this will be my year , and maybe I'll even get my 1st choice for duck hunting at Union Co. refuge for opening day . And that's got to be at least 13 years ...........
My year is starting off well , I got Sept. 1st with a partner for Des Plaines . Anyone else do any good ?
my buddy and I got our 1st choice coffeen 9/2 hunt our field on the 1st don't know if its planted our wheat [5yr volunteer ] was so bad we plowed it under and put in 3 kinds of millet its up ???????????????
Sept 1 Horseshoe Lake Madison County. Take care of those sunflowers. Jimbo.
One field is a field that hasn't been planted in 'flowers in over 20 years.
It was our thought that by going back to this field, the weeds wouldn't be as resistant to our herbicides.
Thing is, its not a nice, square field and will be a pain to mow and such, with so many "nooks and crannies" to go around, but we shall see.
The local Canada geese took to muchin' on the newly exposed flowers and did some damage, and the deer are doing what deer do and have put a hurtin' on them. The field is clean, but again, Ma Nature ( not the rain this time ) has been a battle.
I think that field has potential, though.
Our other field, well........it sucks.
We did manage to get pre and post emergent chemicals, fertilizer and of course seed. It was a "high hopes" year, but the damn deer like to eat. I think we're going to open up a 100 day long, high velocity automatic rifle season on them deer next year....anything goes...if its brown, its down....
I have Sept 1 Coff. I am a Wolf Pack of one.
Drew my #1 pick on Sept 1st
I didnt bother to buy a Habitat Stamp last year thus no dove hunting for me. I haven't bought one this year ( yet ? ) either.
Its 105 degrees outside....how any of you can be excited to shoot a dove right now is beyond me
Coot Killr, the flowers have produced some nice heads and "should" be in good shape.
I took a few seeds from our stock before the farmer planted them to plant at home ( 3 potted plants near my garden, not a whole dove field worth ), just to experiment and see how well they'd grow....those are coming in nice as well.
