Dog sitting my oldest sons pup Lou while he and his wife are in Tahoe this week.

Found a field with a few birds working, she did pretty good with them. Was a little rusty on the retrieving to hand after her spring layoff but had a good time.
Darcy did not like being benched this morning.

Looks like a great time and great work for the dogs. They changed up our dove season down here this year. Used to open at noon opening day, now it opens :30 minutes before sunrise like all migratory birds and on managed hunts, closes at noon. Apparently us hunters voted that in for some reason. :emoji_frowning2:

That sucks!
A lot of our best shoots are evening hunts, can you still shoot all day on private property?
My boys planted a bunch of sunflowers this year to mow down with high hopes of lots of doves this September.

Yes on private property you can shoot all day. Unfortunately I have very few doves on our place and good shoots down here start at $250 per gun for opening day, great shoots are $350. Logan and I have been going to the WMA hunts for several years and always have good to great shoots. Not sure what to expect this year.

We have a bunch of doves around here right now…so that probably means they will blow out of here a few days before season!

They did that last year, then we got fresh ones or they bounced back? We ended up with a few really good shoots though.
