Outdoors: Enjoying the first hunt of dove season


The first hunting opportunity of the 2016-17 season opened last Thursday, Sept. 1, as thousands of Texas dove hunters took to the field.  My son, Tim, and I were among them. We both were sporting new shotguns and hoped to drop a dove with our first shot.  As we impatiently waited gunfire began to rumble in the distance on all sides.  Hunters were blazing away at birds pouring in for an early breakfast.
