Seriously probably 50 of the ring neck and maybe that many normal doves. We have 50 acres of nothing but dove feed. We had around 700+ two weeks ago and it was shaping up like normal and all of a sudden gone!

You can trust a dove about as much as you can a BWT.

Somebody has got a better food source. You will hear all the shooting and know where they went

when more and more food is on the ground, you get less and less doves. That is why I plant for late season. When everyones elses feed is gone, I have doves!

The millet was, then raked and bailed, seeds every where. Just started mowing the sunflowers a week ago, mowing another row every other day. It's a steady food source, and we leave enough to cut for late season as well.

It would be hard to bait a field more than this one is natural!

We had a field once covered with doves 2 days before the opener. We had millet. It rained the day before the season and our neighbor had just cut his corn. They were gone on opening day. Bummer

Hawks will ruin a bird fielder faster than anything.
