Anyone have Dove Plans?

One month, anyone have any great plans? I've got a small place about 30 miles east of Denver the guy lets me go on.
Dam thankful to have that!Slob hunters have made it nearly impossible to find places....usually good for a couple of weeks then a cool front pushes em south!
Lifes not meant to be a journey to the grave with the intentions of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thouroughly used up, totally wore out,loudly proclaiming....
WOW.....WHAT A RIDE.......

Plenty of public land here to hunt them on, the Dove restraunts are many, good feeding grounds and plenty of water sources. I hunt in the Lake Sakakawea area.

Thats where I bow hunt Deer also, so that makes it convienient. The only problem is when I take the Dog dove hunting he doesn't understand he can't go deer hunting and sits in the camper and howls. It's the most pathetic thing you ever heard.

Being that I don't own any oil reserves I usually camp for a week at a time. I can carry enough purified water for cooking etc. and I can use lake water for dishes pots and pans and personal washing. For the dishes I have to heat it anyway. I don't enjoy diarrhea when camping.

I can drive a few minutes from the area and get ice and supplies when I need them and shoot the breeze at the bar/gas station/eatery etc.

Have a good hunt , Bill

I have a wheat field that I am hoping to hunt. The owner of the field just died today at the age of 95, but I still get along with his daughter and son in-law, so I am hoping that I will still get to hunt there.
The pond, waterfowl, and yellow don't get any better.

Yep we have a few fields that I have access to that I can get a few birds on. They used to be covered in dove and quail, but at least the dove are still there.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. - John 3:16 KJV

Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun. - Ecclesiastes 8:15 KJV

"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." - 40th President of the United States Ronald Reagan 1911-2004
