My neighbor and I just put in a dove plot. See pics below. The 1st is my daily driver at the field edge with the neighbors tractor behind. The 2nd shows the millet, sunflower seeds and fertilizer (10,10,20).

The field is 34yds by 73yds. I mowed it first then we tilled and seeded. 3rd pic is my neighbor working the broadcaster followed by our compaction method. We were trying not to bury the millet too deep. We’re not sure if the millet or sunflowers are going to come up first. Hopefully the limited amount of sunflowers won’t choke out the millet. Now for some rain...

Ammunition is like firewood. The more you have, the warmer you feel.

So this is what happens to to all the Dove I feed all winter. As fat as they are when they leave here You are just wasting Your time trying to feed them, just shoot them and thank the guy in South Florida for all the fat doves.

Diller Killer. LOL. This VA resident appreciates the kind and benevolent actions from our good neighbors to the south! 😀
