I have never had much interest in shooting doves, various reasons, but the neighbor kid has been bugging me for 3 years to join him. My wife and daughter thought they would like to try it this year, so I finally gave in. I have to admit, it was a lot of fun. Our field wasn't the best set up and there were a ton of hunters out but we still got some shooting and both of the girls got their first game bird on their own. They have shot deer and antelope, but no other small game. Yes, I know I did it backwards. Anyway, lesson learned, don't knock it till you try it. The best part is that even though I gave up duck and goose hunting many years ago the girls are excited to try that too so that will equal more days in the field with them. Can't argue with that !
