    Going to be shooting some doves today. First hunt of the season...just been really busy on days that I received prior invitations.

    Going to be using, for the first time, a 16gauge Ithaca 37 with 28" modified barrel. I usually shoot much shorter barrels and prefer improved cylinder for the kind of shooting that I do. Haven't shot a pump in several years.

    Looking forward to the slaughter! :evil:

    This late in the season you'll probably need that modified choke.

    Shooting a pump after a long layoff is just like riding a bike after decades away from one. It all comes back and in a short time it's like you've been shooting one all along.

    I love dove hunting. Out here in SW Az. I can step out my back door and limit out in less than a 1/2 hr, if I do my part. And we also have those collard dove (Eurasian), which has no limit or season.

    Do you live in a good place for dove hunting?
