I scout 2-3 times a week, every week because last year I didn’t see a deer on public land for the entire last month of the season and I’m not getting in that situation again. Also finding lots of bears. Seen some squirrels but more than likely if I’m squirrel hunting it’ll be with curs this year.

    My 308 is sighted in and shooting very well with handloads. My 30-30 is also ready, but my other rifles need some work. I’m still in the process of finding my new 270 handloads.
    That .308 is a little rough on dove, isn't it? LOL!

      A little weak IMO. Next year my dove gun will probably be a 375 or 416

        Robert Ruark described dove hunting as, "...the hardest easy shooting, or the easiest hard shooting there is." Very apt. On my good days, I'll scare ya, but on the other days I can't hit the ground with my hat.

          To me, dove hunting was an opportunity to burn ammo for a reason with an occasional meal (?) thrown in.
          It takes a butt load of birds to feed very many people, especially when it's a bunch of big old, country, hungry bird hunters! LOL!
          Better have lots of side dishes!
