I had BIG expectations when I hit the road today at 11 a.m. to arrive early and claim my dove hunting “hot spot”. When I pulled in the gate, there was only one other truck and the skies were overcast, I knew it would not be long before the barrel would be too hot to touch and birds would be dropping left and right. Needless to say, the doves did not cooperate and I did not have even one dove pass within shooting distance the entire afternoon. I spoke to several of my buddies who were hunting various properties throughout Hanover County, VA and they seemed to have similar experiences. Where have all the doves gone? Was anyone able to reach their limit?
