Dove fields
How’s everybody looking? I thought I was gonna need rice tires on the Ranger spraying Roundup.

Hoping this week will dry us out a little.

re: Dove fields
Im going to be honest... we have done dove fields years and years. All the time and money. And the best fields are the ones we never plant. Go out there about the 3rd weekend in july, burn it off... next weekend disk it under and pour the chopped corn, wheat, black oil sunflower seeds out. Continue a couple more weeks. Then weekend before wheat only ad disk it under. We burn them up

re: Dove fields
Been dry here. Corn is coming up fine but we had to re-plant the sunflowers. Also planted some prozo and have some wheat that came back from last year.

How do you pull birds in November - January?

re: Dove fields
I planted, sprayed and fertilized 2 weeks. I have/had a good stand but lost some in the low areas with all the rain. I’ll probably replant a little when it dries up

Ole Yeller, We might have to go that route if it doesn’t dry up soon!

“Pie wheels”. Never heard em called that before. I like it!

Nah you're good. You have till the end of May to have conventional sunflowers ready for opening weekend. For millet you have until mid June or so

Even if you disk it, burn it, whatever you can't throw seed out within 2 weeks of hunting a spot. And even then you better be real sure it's all gone.

I'm afraid this is right. We have this discussion every year.

The throwing it out and disking it in a couple weeks before season was the old way most people did it, my father included.

The law has changed. It must be planted and raised to maturity. This is arguably better, because it allows for manipulation at any time. Grow a field of sunflowers and brush hog/disk strips through it 2 or 3 weeks before season. Brush hog/disk the rest of it a week before the next split opens if you're that into hunting them.

The point is grow it legit, and do what you want. Scatter a half ton of seed 2 weeks before season and disk it in and that's your ass. Green jeans'll slap that ink on ya, Baw.

July 4th is the last day you can legally scatter crack corn on the ground between the sunflower rows. At least that is what I have been told!

re: Dove fields


You can spread and hunt over wheat if it is done evenly and as a "normal agricultural practice". However you cannot spread wheat and hunt over it until your County Agent sets the wheat planting dates/guidelines. In Louisiana they go off of the LSU Agcenter's recommendation and that date is never before Sept 1st. But after the date has passed you can spread wheat and hunt over it as long as it is spread mechanically and is uniform.
