Default Anyone planted for doves yet

Just got my seed in the ground today between the rains. Havenít posted much the last couple years and didnít even do any dove hunting last year bc of it and gator season overlapping almost 100%.....which it does again for over the first half of first five down here and near impossible to really do both so not sure how much gonna even shoot this year either depending on getting drawn or not for gator. Anyways.....this always signals the beginning of the next hunting season for me. Time to sit on the porch and start counting how many are flying in. Just a blink and itíll be bow season again.

What did you plant?

I planted about an acre of sunflowers several weeks ago .. Mostly for decoration, but they'll be dropping Close to the opener.
I broke more ground today, I'll plant browntop in a couple weeks

Planted browntop the last two years. Not enough birds in my area to make it worth it.

My 1st year to plant anything so learning. Planted sunflowers mid April in strips every couple weeks and applied pre emergents but grass took them over and they don’t look great but got some to come up. Brown top millet was planted about a month later and looks decent with heads starting to show. Plan is to spray the sunflower strips and then burn it. Is that the best scenario to clean it up? Millet I’m undecided as to just cut in strips or burn it. Thoughts?

Iíd spray sunflowers, then mow, then burn. Need to mow to bust up the seed heads. Iíd also spray the millet wait til itís brown then mow and burn the same afternoon. You at least need to mow the millet before burning. It burns too well when standing and lots of those tiny seeds would be burned up.

I was pleasantly surprised at our shoot Sunday afternoon. I had no idea I had that many birds. 4 guns and 47 birds. Actually 3.5 guns. Had a guy get sick and leave after about an hour due to the heat. Enjoying my boys while I can. Worth every penny and the work getting the field ready.
