I'm on a lease that has several large fields planted with corn this year. The farmer is likely going to harvest the corn before September 1st.

Are cut corn fields a good bet to catch some doves flying?

Where is the best place to set up on a cut field? The edge near trees?

Thanks guys and good luck!

Cut corn is good for dove hunting. Uncut...not so good cause its hard to find your birds. Best thing you could do is scout the fields a day or so before opening a see if and where they are flying. I like the highest point on a tree line. Preferably w/ the sun at my back and in the shade.

What's a "dead snag"? Is that a fallen tree?

Dead snag = dead tree with no leaves, still standing.

Ditto on the big dead trees. doves love to sit in those and if you can hide right at the base of one, you can get a lot of easy shots just before they land. We have one particular power pole that serves the same purpose.

I have hunted them uncut as well and that was best when the field had a bare patch in the middle. Cut would be better, actually I think I have dove hunted cut corn fields before.

Better check the Regs on hunting a cut corn field before you hunt it , I have a 4 acre sweet corn field and most of it was picked to sale so I called TWRA and asked if I could bushhawg what was left and hunt it and the answer was NO!!!!!

Im afraid someone told you wrong. You can't hunt DUCKS over bushogged corn. Doves are fair game.

Bush Hogging corn is not a normal agricultrial practice which is illegal for doves also.Picked corn is Legal.
