Default Who is ready for dove season?

I do 99% of my hunting outside of Westfalia, Marlin and Crawford and every day closer to opening day looks better and better. Is anyone else seeing this? I've got a feeling that me and the girlfriend won't be on the best of terms with me being in the field before and after work.

What are y'all doing to get ready?

I planted a food plot for upland game birds for the dove and quail.
I am so ready for opening day.

Forgive my naïveté, as I'm not a hunter. Is there enough meat on dove to eat?

Yes you eat the breast only. and you have to shoot a lot of them to make a nice meal.

I usually have enough to last all year but I got on a kick a couple months ago and completely depleted my reserves. Gonna have to learn some self discipline this year when the season ends.
