Has anyone hunted a public dove field? I imagine they are about as crazy as they come opening day and maybe even the next couple. What are they like? How do they control the groups so everyone is not shooting into everyone else?

Im wondering the same thing as far as "shooting into everyone else" myself.

Ive never been to one either. How does the staked position thing work? I could see it turning bad if someone is out there and shoots low & left, etc... Of couse ive never been so, cant comment. But would like to know how the experiences are.

Its not too bad. Just keep your head down. Seriously people are usually courteous. Everyone looks out for everyone. If you see a low bird yell " Low bird" to let everyone else know you think the bird is to low to be shooting at. If you see a bird coming over someone yell "Bird!" and they may do the same for you on a bird you dont see. Never shoot at a bird that is lower than about 30 yds off the ground. Use some common sense and everyone will have a good day.

I shoot private and public every year,,,some public fields will have a quota on them,,,there will be a sign in sheet say for 100 people on that field and when it feels up thats all allowed until someone leaves,,,but most are just wide open,,,never had any real problems.

The TWRA field in LaVergne is typically maxed out, then there ain't any doves.

I have hunted a few pay hunts and they can become dangerous
I received a invitation from a well known shooter in Haywood Co.
I am looking forward to the opportunity to hunt his dove fields
Be careful on public hunts
