    Since I have another two weeks for crow to open I am going to give late dove season a go this weekend. I have never attempted it though. Anyone have any words of advise on how to approach it this time of year?

    Hmmm. It's pretty tough around here. What few birds are hanging around are grouped up. They all come in together unlike September. Its usually a two shot hunt.

    Put on some miles and find the picked corn field they are using.

    Funny timing on this thread as I was thinking the same thing after seeing 30 plus doves on a power line going through a corn field next to my house.

    Once you shoot they will leave out

    Killed many late season limits on cut corn and beans. I almost prefer the late season to the September opener. Gives me something to do when there are no ducks

    Lol I don't think I have ever heard such a broad spectrum of answers for a question before. I have heard :don't bother, hunt them the same, walk across feed sites to flush them out, only hunt along power lines and others. It seems like there is no solid way to approach it. We have taken dove this time of year but we were hunting other things and they just happen to present themselves. We will see this weekend how it goes I guess. Thanks for the help.

    I have never hunted late season, but with the warm weather and no ducks I'm thinking of giving it a try. I'm going to scout and find a corn field they are feeding on and them set up for them. I'm thinking the mojo dove should work great.
