Dove hunting tips from Allen Treadwell

The following is from Allen Treadwell of Bass Pro’s RedHead Pro Hunting Team…

Dove hunting doesn’t take a great deal of planning. Finding where they roost, feed, drink,and pick up gravel are things you should know.

Drive around the countryside looking for doves. It is easy to be fooled by small groups of birds sitting on power lines.

These birds are just resting while going from one place to another. Watch the surrounding area for more birds. Note the direction they come and go.

These birds should lead you to fields where more doves are feeding or trees where birds are roosting.

Don’t waste your time looking for doves in grassy pastures. Grain fields left standing or recently cut are excellent dove areas especially if there is water and gravel roads nearby.
