NAT’L – HUNTING – Practice pays when dove season comes around

MADISON.COM – Dove season is just around the corner in many parts of the country. In Wisconsin, dove season runs Sept. 1 to Nov. 9.

It’s time to get your favorite shotgun out of mothballs and make certain it was properly cleaned the last time you used it. You could also visit a shooting range and break a few clay birds.

Too many dove hunters haven’t shot a moving target with a shotgun since last season. It’s time to get your favorite shotgun out of mothballs and make certain it was properly cleaned the last time you used it.

Doves have a reputation as the sportiest of migratory game birds — at least among sportsmen who’ve never had the humbling experience of hunting woodcock or snipe.

Not only do doves come at you from every direction and elevation, they’re like a crafty big league pitcher, always changing speeds. If major league hitters knew what pitch was coming, they could pad their batting averages.

NAT’L – HUNTING – Practice and Learn Why You’re Missing Doves

MOSSY OAK.COM – By shooting trap, skeet and sporting clays, you learn how to continue to swing past the target and make the proper follow-through to shoot correctly when hunting doves.

If you’re serious about your dove shooting, go to a trap, a skeet or a sporting-clay range. Have a qualified instructor watch you shoot. In 5 to 10 minutes, he’ll be able to see the mistakes you’re making and help you drastically increase your ability to shoot doves more proficiently.  [full article]

Warming up for dove season

It’s mid-Summer and the Trap and Skeeters are Upon Us

As usual most out-of-practice bird hunters find this time of year confusing. It’s mid-summer and the only things around that bite you are mosquitoes. That’s unfortunate, of course, because one look at the calendar will reveal that you only have three weeks before the dove season opens.

Unless, that is, you’ve been driving past your local gun range and what you mostly see are not guys sighting in their rifles in anticipation of big game hunting, but guys and gals hitting the trap and skeet ranges not just for the competition but to oil up those trigger digits for the September 1at dove season opener.

With most of the news focused on the Covid-19 virus and the presidential election, it’s easy to forget that there may be better things to think about.  On that note, we’d suggest you get in the mood at least for a warm-up practice primer via this edition of…
