In this National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) video, Gil Ash of OSP Shooting School explains how to “slow down” clay targets and birds
With bird season just around the corner, I thought I would take a few minutes to explain the basics of one of my favorite pastimes.
Doves are one of this country’s most hunted game birds. Why? They offer fast-paced action in the hunting fields. They are common in all regions of the country, they are easy to clean and taste yummy.
In Part One, we reviewed dove habitat and hopefully gleaned a few tips and tactics on scouting good spots. However, when it comes to dove hunting, every time you go afield to hunt these fast flying feathered rockets, you will gain more insight into one of America’s favorite game birds and hopefully discover why they are so much fun to hunt.
From Alaska to Argentina, and virtually every place in between, dove hunting seasons mark the passage from summer to fall. And one of the beauties of dove hunting is that it doesn’t matter how small or how big your property is, how much or how little you want to spend, or whether you’re using the finest shotgun or your granddaddy’s old reliable, dove hunting seems to level the playing field.
The best single tool ever devised and utilized by law enforcement, sportsmen, soldiers and home defenders. It has saved lives, protected those in blue, opened terrorist doors and bagged a days worth of doves. It can be behind the door tact-out and in 30 minutes or less be ready for the bird blind with a few part changes. That tool is the Remington Model 870 shotgun.
If you are new to dove hunting, it can be a humbling experience. Hitting a fast moving object with another much faster moving object is even harder than it sounds. Practicing with clay pigeons will help, but only so much. A few days ago, I had the pleasure of hunting in some prime dove country in west Texas. I’ve been dove hunting multiple times a year since I was in grade school, but some of my compatriots did not grow up so blessed. They were visibly excited to give it a try.
