Talking Any dove hunters out there?

Hey guys! anyone ready for the sept season? and then the winter season?

not sure how much of a good season ill have since my grandpa cut down all the willow trees where i hunt because apparently dead trees are not good. he doesnt even freaking use the land lol (still got a rice field next to it so if i sit long enuf in one place i should do okay)

favorite method of hunting?
recipes?
gun specs?
advice?
your shot to dove ratio?
anyone have any serious preference with the 8 to 7 1/2 shot? i use 7 1/2 mostly

etc etc!?

PICS ENCOURAGED haha ill see if i can find my picture of my bbq bacon/chipotle poppers

my gun: 870 remington express magnum, pump shot gun (20 Gauge)
winchester 7 1/2 unviversal OR Remington 8 sport load

absolutely! i think the trickiest part for newbies and even for mysel fis deciding in a split second which one to shoot (in a group of like three) and also decicing to shoot or not! i still make shots sometimes that were probably too far in the first place

----------

wtf LMAo

when i first started out i used a single shot as well but then i noticed i couldve gotten two doves in a row so i started using the 3 shot.. doesnt happen very often but it does happen lol just bang bang! now..wheres that first dove...5 mins of looking! haha stupid grass

----------

dont wanna compare but im just curious? whats ur shot to dove ratio? when i was younger i used up two boxes for 2 doves get too excited and forget to actually aim haha
