2005-06 Dove Season

December 31, 2005 - Had a great dove hunt!  Only bad news was Austin is sick and had to stay home.

September 10, 2005 - Dove hunted at the opening day field.  The kids had a big time.  Austin had a football game that morning and we made it to the field around noon.  We shot several birds.  Amber had a harder time this year - the birds were flying high and fast - that's tough on a 12-year old with a low brass 20-gauge.

September 17, 2005 - Dove hunted the same field - had a good time.  Scott came up with his kids - they played all afternoon.  The kids had a blast.

November 12, 2005 - Peaches died - tough loss. She was a great dog!  Lived 12 years.

December 29, 2005   Dove hunted at Jim's in the mid-day.  Had a good time - lots of birds in the field when we arrived at 11:30am.  We saw quite a few birds - most were high and fast.  It was fun - killed a few.
