Are you ready for dove season? Here are a few tips that might help you this September.
Dove hunting is a fun outdoors experience that can be shared with family and friends. With dove season getting closer, it’s almost time to take that trusty shotgun to the fields in pursuit of these migratory birds.
Be sure to watch this video before your next hunt.
I can’t stress enough on the importance of marking fallen birds and retrieving them immediately. It’s amazing how well dove blend in with brush and tall grass. Once the bird goes down, it should be picked up before doing anything else. This will keep losing birds in the field to a minimum.
Doves are fast-flying birds that can be challenging to shoot. Every year before season, I like to shoot sporting clays to sharpen up my skills. This gives me the practice and confidence I need, before going out in the field.
Hopefully some of the pointers from this video will help you on your next dove hunt. The most important thing to remember is to be safe and have fun.
