Dove Season.....Deer Season!

Whether to hunt or fish?  Shotem and Caughtem Season is here...

We at Shotem and Caughtem have been a little side tracked on getting the Iphone app where it needs to be before the official kick off and our favorite time of the year....the second installment of Shotem and Caughtem season.  Yes twice a year those of us who truly have the passion for hunting and fishing get the opportunity to revel in the glory which only comes along twice a year.  That golden age when the weather is perfect to not only wet a line but smell the sweet smell of gunpowder.  As is the case with these times of year we can be overwhelmed with as looney tunes so appropriately put it a new variation of DUCK SEASON......WABBIT SEASON our own dilema of DOVE SEASON.......BUCK SEASON.

Want to get the app for the social network of hunters and anglers?

Prepping for these times, as is the case with any season, is the most important thing we who have a passion for hunting and fishing can do.  As the fishing season heats up and our focus is distracting for the upcoming hunting season many of us will be outdoors getting ready.  Stands go up, feeders put in place, trail cameras are set, yes it is our favorite time of year.  It is why we are working so hard to get the last app completed. But we live for the official hunting season kick off DOVE SEASON!  

Hunting Season Scouting

Scouting for that perfect wheat stubble, milo patch and the Dove crack grain sunflower fields can also be used as a great way to find out what wildlife happens to be traveling around your favorite hunting spots.  Dove need the basic threes.  Food, water and gravel.  You find a spot that has the perfect mix of all three and you have found our heaven.  We are lucky that we get the opportunity to hunt our heaven every year.  A long time ago we met with a person that owns a local gravel pit with some farm land and some large sloping ponds.  The filet mignon of the skies Graceland.  Plant a couple of dead trees by the water and get out the dove mojo and it is time to burn through some shells.  

If you too can find this perfect place in your area we suggest you knock on the door.  No doubt once the weather begins to change they will begin the journey south and these spots will be the honey hole for those of you that love Dove Season as much as we do.  We hope to see all your photos in some of the great new groups started as you too prep for Shotem and Caughtem season!
