Think back to your very first dove hunt. No matter how many years ago, chances are you remember—the time, place, gun and who you were with. For many of us, dove hunting was the start into the world of hunting and wildlife, forging lifelong friendships, passions and memories. For me, it was about 1966. The memory is clear even after 50 years. Dad and Mom had bought a small piece of land in what was a very rural part of Denton County at the end of a bumpy, seldom used, gravel road. We would go there every weekend to clear brush, plant trees, explore and experience nature. For my brother and me, our primary interest was target shooting after the work was done.
