For those hunters wanting a new challenge – try out Mourning Doves. The season opens tomorrow (September 1st) for this fast acrobatic birds.
Most hunting strategies include waiting at a small stock dam at sunrise or dusk and pass shoot as the birds come to drink or back to field to eat. If you have access to a sunflower field these birds love to cluster here.
If you are really serious get yourself of dove decoys (http://www.cabelas.com/product/Mojo-Outdoors-4-Pack-Dove/709178.uts?Ntk=AllProducts&searchPath=%2Fcatalog%2Fsearch.cmd%3Fform_state%3DsearchForm%26N%3D0%26fsch%3Dtrue%26Ntk%3DAllProducts%26Ntt%3Ddove%2Bdecoys%26WTz_l%3DHeader%253BSearch-All%2BProducts&Ntt=dove+decoys&WTz_l=Header%3BSearch-All+Products) to clip on a fence or small branch and wait.
