I have a spot that I hunt dove around a livestock pond and this year due to the very dry conditions we now have several geese (like 50+) that are staying around this pond and the surronding fields. Now I know that dove season and early goose season open on the same day. Is there a way that you can hunt both in the same field. Like maybe take one gun that has only steel shot and another for dove. Just curious thought it might be fun to shoot at a few of the big birds. Any thoughts?

If you want to hunt both at the same time, you may only possess non-toxic shot.

Wouldn't it also have to be no larger than No.4 shot?

I don't guess I'll be doing that. Regular shells are high enough to shoot dove with. These are resident geese that are doing a pretty good job of riding our cattle field of what little grass is left. I'm not a waterfowl hunter and didn't really know what the rules were on that. Thanks for the info.

Yes, you are correct. #4 shot or smaller for dove hunting. Would not be very affective for geese.

#4 hevi-shot will put them down at 30+ yards. Its pretty expensive though.

But you cannot possess the BBB while dove hunting. You have to put them in the truck and only have #4 or smaller shot while dove hunting.
