    That's all it took for me to kill my first ten doves of the season. Seven of us surrounded the corner of a grain field and let lead fly for about two hours. At 5:50am dove started flying over in singles and pairs, by 6:10 am they were in groups of four to six and stayed that way until all seven of us shot our limits. One of our group limited in under 30 minutes. It took me about ten minutes and close to a box of shells to get zeroed in. Boy was it fun, I think I might go and do this again tomorrow. I hope the rest of you dove hunters had as many flyers and success as we did.

    My buddy and I had limits in about an hour. And it only took that long b/c we were screwing around and not trying as hard as we should have. The other guys in our group (about 10 people) did well but only the guys that were really trying got limits.

    Talk about a ZOO! My friends told me that this wasn't bad compared to other years but damn there was a LOT of lead flying around. I got rained on a bunch and hit once in the legs with stray shot. I can't believe that many people hunt. And most everyone was cool but there were a few boobs that got excited and shot at low stuff.

    What an experience! I think I'll stick to 2nd season. .

    Nah, damn that was fun. 2 boxes of shells thru my new shotgun. A nice leetle bruise on the shoulder.
