Dove me Tender

Today I went with my father-in-law to a Shelby County farm to witness a Dove hunt. It was an interesting mix of testosterone and lounging. A friend of his allows folks to use the land to hunt Dove and he was there with his hunting dogs.
Tuesday was the first day of the Dove season. Lou went out and shot a few but wanted to take advantage of the field his friend prepared. Around 5pm the birds flew in looking for a meal instead they were fed a gullet full of shot from a 12 gauge shotgun. Maybe one day I will take a hunter's safety course and get my Dove hunt on. What sounds more realistic is that I train a Lab to hunt with Dad-O and stay off PETA's radar.
