Why do shooting hours on the first day and all the TWRA sponsored shoots the first weekend always start at noon? I grew up in South Carolina and dove season was the start of all hunting seasons, getting up at 4:30am and going to breakfast, then shoot for a few hours and when it started getting hot we took a break for a bologna sandwhich and sweet tea. Then maybe a nap and back to the dove fields in the late evening. It seems here in TN the first weekend you spend 4 to 5 hours in the heat of the day waiting for the evening shoot. You may get a few shots off but mostly all you are doing is saving your spot for the late evening shoot...
