doves and tarpons

I shot for 2 1/2 hours this morning, 500 shells, 280 doves.  That's about 1 dead dove every 30 seconds....Will try to do better this afternoon.....

And before you do-gooders get down on what we're doing here in's the short of it.  Conversion of pasture to agriculture (beans and corn) = more food.
Prohibiting hunting in the roost/nesting areas + the climate allows for the doves to nest year round + more food = more doves every year, despite the increases in the numbers of hunters.

I'm looking forward to getting back on the water, below is the report from Capt. Phil:

"I haven't seen this many fish for ten years or more. You won't believe it when you get home."   Phil Ambler
