This year D&H is having four shoots at our very productive dove fields in Harrison County, KY.  The farm is family run and the fields are not commercially hunted.  Our fields have perfect habitat for Mourning Doves: rolling hills and abundant crops grown in fertile soil that are surrounded by hardwood forests.
We have expanded our plantings again this year and have many fields to shoot.  Our farmer said they just got some rain and the plants look good.  We will have almost twice as much groceries for the doves as last year.  We will be hunting fields loaded with food plots of sunflowers, corn, wheat and alfalfa or native feeding areas containing foxtail, sumac, ragweed and the like.  The farm also has available really nice roosting sites.

This is a wild bird shoot, so there are no guarantees as to the number of birds that will be present.  We are doing everything we can to ensure a lot of great food plots and ideal habitat to attract and hold birds.
Dove shooting…it can be fast!  Lots of talking in the field; calling out to your neighbor…

“ Look behind you! Four coming in from the fencerow! Six coming in from the watering hole! Behind you! Behind you! What? Oh, behind me?” 
“Neil, you got the lucky spot.  I know it can’t be your shootin’ skills. Let me in there!” 
“Hey Alan, you got any shells? How ‘bout a handful?”

During the Shoot
Water will be provided (bring a small cooler to take to your peg)
After the Shoot Party

Something to wet your whistle

$175 per hunter; checks or cash only; payment in full to hold a spot; no refunds unless we are able to fill your spot
