Texas Dove Hunting Opening Weekend

Texas dove hunting kicked off this weekend!

I visited the Big Honker Lodge in Knox City with some friends for the opening of the season.

It was the first long trip for my hunting dog.

Texas dove hunting was fair this opening weekend – mostly singles and doubles but very steady throughout the morning and evening over sunflowers.

Texas dove hunting requires an early start and a surprising amount of equipment!
Sunflower fields are a wonderful magnet for hunting dove in Texas.
Unfortunately, some of those sunflower fields also have a lot of stickers. My dog had to stop, put down the bird, clear a sticker and resume about every 5 yards.
The process just exhausted her…..

Hope any readers out there had a great opening weekend of Texas dove hunting as well!
