Does anyone know what the state has planted in the dove fields this year, particularly at Pickerel Creek and Oak Haven near Sandusky? They've always planted sunflower in the past, mixed it in with foxtail, my son says that this year all of the plantings at Grand River near his home are disked under corn...which he says is bad news for doves...?
Well mr bluedog and I decided to check out how some of the crops in the vegetable fields were growing. And it is September. Not seeing any huge flocks but lots of groups of 2 to 6 birds. So we now have a start to our collection. Will wait until we get more before we cook them up.
My son and I had a great day Saturday at Pickerel Creek. We must have picked the right field, as we were both limited out by 9:15 a.m.
We saw thousands of birds, so did everybody else that was there.
Then we headed over to his neck of the woods east of Cleveland, hunted a state managed dove field this morning, along with half a dozen other people, and saw a grand total of two birds, way out of range.
Pretty normal for the second day of the season on public land. But opening day was great...
Back to MI tomorrow morning, have a great season, everyone!
