Sure, the rut is a GREAT time to hunt if you don't know what you're doing!

I asked my local GW about the opening time once and he told me.. "It just always been that way.."
Years ago the season opened at 12 noon each day of the hunt. there were no morning shoots.
here is the collared dove

Not true. This year NC's dove season opens on Sept 1st sunrise. I'm not saying I agree with it, first time since early 90's its been that way. I'd rather shoot'em in the morning. Had great shoots but as mentioned above, you can wreck a field.
Just because you do not agree with my opinion, it does'nt make me wrong!

So they can generate revenue from violators. Easy to watch the time and listen. Can get at least one guy at every public field.
