Dove Season Opens in Georgia Tomorrow!
After having fertilized, limed, plowed, planted and harrowed my feed plot down in Talbot County, I'm heading out this weekend with most of the family (Jerrica, the 19yo wants to stay home.) to do some work on the camper (at my wife, Stephannie's request) and to hang my 2-man ladder stand. Even more exciting, however, is the fact that dove season opens at noon on the 1st of September!
While I had to buy some Winchester Texas Heavy Dove & Quail load for this weekend, I prefer to reload my own. Just couldn't get any done for this weekend, as the loading bench is in the process of moving.
I did, however, find the perfect reload to duplicate the Winchester Texas Heavy load:
• 2 3/4-in. Win. Polyformed with Plastic Wad
• 1 1/8 shot wt. #8 plated (copper- or nickel-plated)
• Win. 209 Primers
• Win. WAA12 (White) Wads
Dram Equiv. Shot Wt. Velocity Primer Powder Wad Grains Approx. psi
