Well I went to my spot about 8 miles from Westmoreland. Drove through the thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon going to my spot. Everything was very wet when I got there. After the rain I BBQed steak and watched the lightning storm. Got my limit on the 1st but today was not good. Packed up at 7:30 without firing a shot. Also got to shoot my Grandfather's Citori that he bought in 1965. PXL_20210901_014418315~3.jpgPXL_20210902_033849304~3.jpgIMG_20210901_204203_875.jpg Anyone else go out? How did you do?

Pretty slow for us. Spot that two weeks before held lots of birds had far fewer birds. We left there about 8 with around 7 birds each and went down to Cibola but there were to many hunters there to find a decent spot. we did add to our count but only by a few birds. We returned there for the evening hunt and filled out limit. 2nd was much slower which kind of surprised everyone there beings we were hunting over about 60 acres of wheat planted just for the dove. I talk to John from Friends of Cibola and he said that was the worst he had seen the second morning in many years. We had been to Cibola about three weeks before and the number of dove was unbelievable but the rain drove a lot away. Might go down for the end of early season. Some guys were getting citations for shooting lead shot on refuge. they thought because they were on the AZ. side they were good.Wrong.
