I wish that dove season started a couple of weeks earlier than usual. The birds seem to have taken a hike by Labor Day weekend. Before then, they are plentiful but opening day has been pitiful the past few years.

All the corn has been cut on my farm and the hunting club lands. I am looking forward to spending the day with my two sons, blowing holes in the sky. Maybe a dove or 2 will intercept the shot. If not, I will enjoy a day with the boys. BTW, when I sold the farm, I maintained the hunting rights in perpetuity. As long as I live, I will have a place to hunt.

The club has over 8,000 acres and the farm has 240 acres of prime hunting lands. Though the club owner has gone up a bit on the lease from last year on the club lands, we will pay it just to have a place to hunt. He was charging $5 an acre, now $6 an acre. All the club members chip in and it doesn't hurt too much financially. I don't charge anyone to hunt on my place but the club does have a small daily fee.

I was planning to go to the hunting preserve but they charge $80 a day. Yet, they have hundreds of acres of sunflowers and swarms of doves. I think I will hunt my land and not have to put up with the crowds.
