Opening Day Member/Guest Dove Hunt
Access to a dove hunting area has been a “wish” for many chapter members over the years and several years ago, our chapter made the decision to sponsor a dove field for chapter members. For the first dove hunts, our chapter was the guest of Chapter Member Rick Davis’s White Oak Elk Ranch until he sold his farm.
As those hunts had been so popular with our members, our chapter then voted to lease a dove hunting area at the Jefferson Proving Grounds in Indiana but there was much work to be done to get the grounds ready and chapter members/volunteers Mike Maddox and Jim Warren stepped up to the plate doing everything from preparing the ground and planting to tending and preparing it for the hunt as well as working the event! From opening day through September, this has become a wonderful event as is evidenced by the camaraderie displayed during the event and the lasting friendships created once dove season is over. If you would like to volunteer or join us for a hunt, please let Mike know.
