Went dove hunting with my two best buddies yesterday. Never pulled the trigger on my 16 gauge Sterlingworth. Got out by 6:30 am. Beautiful sunrise! Have two farms I can hunt within 5 miles of home, so travel time is nothing. Not many doves flying, but we all had a fine time. By 8:30 am, my wife had all she wanted. She just came along to watch her daughter work, but with me not dropping anything, she got bored! Oh well, there’s next Saturday. The dog and I really had a good day.

Never pulling the trigger on your 16 gauge sounds awfully familiar. Sometimes they simply aren’t flying. When I was much younger, we knew several farmers who would cut their grain fields about the time dove season came in. There were days we shot so much our shoulders were sore with little to show for the effort. Doves seem to have a radar that allows them to dodge shot. yielding a low ratio of birds bagged to shots fired. Still, it was a lot of fun even though the doves made fools of us.

The hunting is the good part. The follow-up not so much.. You still got the good part to look forward to.

Love to shoot more or less at those acrobatic flyers, but shoots around here are too expensive unless you can luck into a good shoot on a WMA. Unfortunately, my new Golden is terrified of loud gunshots.
