    Default 2012 VA Dove Hunting

    I have reached out to DGIF I am waiting to hear back on the WMA's that have been planted. Who is hunting private property versus public land this year? Has the heat caused the fields to get burnt up?

    Hoping to hunt some this fall on some private ground. We have a DGIF piece of land up this way (phelps) and the last time I went there it was a joke. Not sure if it's like that every year or just caught it at a bad time. I think you could count the bird sightings on one hand for the afternoon.

    Not looking good for our portion of the valley this fall. Local farmers typically alternate years between corn and soybeans. While this appears to be a "corn-heavy" year, which usually means great dove hunting, the current drought has things looking iffy at best. Corn is beginning to tassle around 4' high. Usually that leads to standing corn late into October. That spells terrible hunting.... Good showers the last few days, but I doubt its in time to save things.
