I stopped by the TWRA dove fields by Howard Bridge in Yanahli WMA. Saw 6 birds on the power line and another 8 to 10 or so flew by while I was standing there. I only got out of the truck to check the boat ramp to make sure I can launch there without trouble.

I won't be hunting there opening weekend... just don't want to be with the crowd, probably will be more hunters than birds, and I dont want to pick lead out of my skin. And the hurricane might just screw it up. But I think it was the most doves I have seen in Yanahli at one time! Don't see many doves out that way yet the city limits here in Franklin always has plenty.
Haven't been this excited about deer season

...since last deer season
