The dove hunt yesterday was pretty tough. Conditions made for challenging shooting - winds were 25mph+ and birds were few. When they did appear they were flying with wind and streaking past real low. Beyond my limited abilities! I had a few opportunities but couldn't get the lead right and missed. Took 4 boxes of shells (ever the optimist) and shot maybe half a box. Had some fun though! It was a nice way to spend the day - had my son with me and another friend and the afternoon passed with good conversation and the anticipation of what might appear.Going on a dove hunt tomorrow (Saturday)! Pretty stoked about it despite the windy weather from Hurricane Sandy. Will update with results later....
Always a good time out in the field!
