Find out what to expect during a typical day of dove hunting from a hunting expert in this free dove and quail hunting video.
This section is just a brief overview on a typical day of dove hunting. Typically what you would do is get your gun and all your gear ready, you would go out into a field and you'd carry a bucket or something to sit on and possibly some camouflage, some dog fennels or something to put around you; if you have a dog that would be with you. The hunters are spaced according to the size of the field and you know just general kind of area. If you have a ten acre field, for instance, if you're hunting the hunters will be spread out and you won't have enough hunters to cover the field. When the dove fly into the field you will get to shoot at them and hopefully you'll knock some down and others get to fly off and they don't have a really good area to land. If you just hunt one side of the field or a small section or portion of it what will happen is those dove will fly in and you will shoot at them and they will go to a field where there aren't any hunters and then they will just land and it'll make for a pretty slow time for the rest of the hunt. So, you want to have evenly spaced hunters around. If you can find any kind of terrain, get along a tree line or a fence row line or if there is water around try to find a place like that, even a hill, a little depression or a point; those are all excellent places to hunt. You want to try to get a little bit of camouflage around you and typically you will sit and wait until the dove fly within your gun shot range which is usually thirty-five or forty yards and then you'll take your shots at those distances. That's just a typical day of dove hunting.
