Dove Hunting 2011

Posted by Phil on September 13th, 2011 | Expedition

2011 Dove Hunting has started out much differently than in years past, at least in South/Central Texas.

Everyone you talk to has a different opinion, but the opening day timeframe’s colder weather, the year’s lack of rainfall, and devastating forest fires seem to be affecting the birds – - the whitewings aren’t flying like last year, and although mourning doves are flying, they’re few and far between.

We hunted 4 spots between Houston, Austin, and San Antonio, with about 5 birds each per day.

We’ll keep after it, as weather/conditions change we’ll keep going out, watching the birds, and reporting the results.  Stay tuned.
