The group I have been going with have shot about 300 out of a sunflower field this year. Probably shot 3000 shells to get them though. Those little things can really get going with any wind.

We have been doing all right but the cold snap definitely pushed a lot of birds out.

They are incredible to eat... grin.gif

09/19/2007 Near Hendrum,MN. Its amazing what a difference and few decoys can make. I sat next to a pond for only an hour this evening and bagged 15. Had a few geese swing by also, but could only watch.

They are fun to hunt and provide sporting targets to boot. The number one migratory gamebird hunted in the nation. Yes they are good to eat also. Not overly large but neither are shrimp.

i keep telling my wife to get the gun when i see doves and she keeps telling me where i can stick my heritage. but i guess when we feed them i dont blame her. also dont have issue with others hunting them either.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
