My friend Chris and I got out a little late on the morning of the dove hunt opener. There were quite a few hunters around where we live so we tried to get away a bit and find some open space. We worked a canal that had a lot of wild sunflowers growing along the banks. The weather was beautiful although a bit windy as a cool-front was moving in from the north. Chris ended up shooting 2 dove and I ended up shooting at about 6 dove and never hit one. It was still a good time and fun to watch the dogs work. Chris’ lab goes crazy at the sound of a gun shot and is a retrieving machine. Abby, my shorthair was just glad to get out and run. We are anxiously awaiting the chukar season which has been moved back a few weeks here in Utah.
