Used to be when I was growing up, dove hunting was a right of passage..... You were someone when you got to hunt with the guys for the first time and shooting you own gun.

We have had some good hunts in years past..... seems like other things, as time goes by, people get older and lose interest.... and it's just not the same hunting as it was when I was younger. I try to hunt when possible.... but over the last few years, for whatever reason, the hunts were just so-so.

Maybe this year I can find a decent field to hunt for the Mrs. & I..... Public fields for the most part, have just gotten too dangerous for my liking.... especially now that the wife hunts with me some.

We used to have some awesome private shoots then bout 5 or 6 years ago we started going to a pay hunt bout 2 miles from my house. At first the guy wouldn let but bout 80 people in the field but 2 yr ago there was 150 people. I didn go down there last year we had a little private shoot with bout 15 people. I wont be back to the pay hunt if I dont have to ,150 is just to many people and if ya got a good spot seems like all the idiots just crowd around ya.

I saw on the news last week where a lot of the Dairies in East TN were having to cut silage early. Kinda makes me wonder about the TWRA lease fields in that area. A 2 month cut silage field is useless. I don't hunt TWRA fields but I do wonder how the drought and early cutting will do to the lease situation.

I love dove shoots. Private hunts or semi-private pay shoots are the only way to do it though, imo.
