Event: A Soggy Early September Dove Hunt
Date: 09/02/2006

Nothing beats an invitation to 700 private acres planted to attract migrating doves. But what if it's raining almost the whole day?
There's a fair amount of waiting involved. The damp sky is keeping the doves from moving. This hunter stands up from his seat-bucket to stretch his legs and make sure his over-under is ready for a flyover.

A hunter - his classic Parker side-by-side across his lap - and his 3-year-old Drathaar (or, German Wirehaired Pointer) waits at his dove station. The air is steamy and drizzly, and the Wirehair is showing great patience for a young pointing dog.

Well, that 19th-century Parker works, its owner can squarely hit a high-speed dove, and his joyous Wirehair was happy to go find it in the damp sunflower patch. Good girl!

During a weather-induced lull, a hunter lets his Vizsla and his Springer move gently about the grounds so they don't become too restless. They're a close-working, friendly pair.

Turns out there is a little critter-scent in the cover, even on a damp day.

A bit of heavier weather is moving in, and a pair of hunters walk their gear out of the field. The doves won't move much in steady rain. At the left of image is one of the huntmaster's station stakes: the field is dotted with them to indicate approved shooting positions.

That $100 canopy is suddenly looking like the best purchase of the season. The dog crates in the back of the SUV, the hunting party, the dove stools, guns, jackets - it all gets to dry out a bit as the weather passes through.
