New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 15, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Outdoors H«rald-Zeitun$ Thursday, August 15,1985 8 A Dove season approaching By CHARLES PARSONS Outdoors writer On Sept. I, the single most important social hunting event of the year begins with the commencement of dove season. Unlike other sorties, which generally require a one-on-one relationship between the hunter and his quarry, dove shoots allow friends, family, kids and associates to enjoy a fine outing without worrying about being noisy or having to hunt alone. Almost every opening-day dove hunt involves fine food, great barbeque, good drink, and best of all, exceptional fellowship in what is normally superb weather. Before the hunt there are some preparations to be made. Although your guns were cleaned before they were stored last year, a thorough once-over with oil, rag and degreaser is in order. A few practice rounds could certainly help redeem that shooting eye that has been on hold for many months. The early afternoon before the doves start arriving offers an excellent time to sight in your deer rifle in anticipation of the upcoming season. Another thing to consider if you are going to hunt several times, although most people generally hunt doves the first day only, is in the reloading factor. By reloading your own shells, you can save approximately 50 percent of the cost of manufactured shells, which average close to $5 a box. Doc’s Guns in New Braunfels has a complete supply of all reloading equipment and supplies one would need. A 12-bird per day limit has been imposed by Texas Parks and Wildlife, including two white-winged or white-tipped doves. Possession limit is twice the daily limit. Remember, a state white-wing stamp is required to legally bag a white-wing. Seasons are set as follows: North Zone, Sept. 1-Nov. 9; Central Zone, Sept. l-Oct. 30 and Jan. 4-13; South Zone, Sept. 20-Nov. 12 and Jan. 4-19. Legal shooting hours are 30 minutes before sunrise to sunset. So get ready, enjoy, and hopefully come home with the makings of a fine dinner. Incidently, my favorite method of preparing doves is to brown them in oil in an skillet, then add either mushroom soup or mushroom steak sauce to cover and simmer for about an hour. Use two or three birds (or more) per person.

Briefly Local report Lake McQueeney Catfish and bass fishing has been good, with one group brining in IOO pounds of bass during a tournament last weekend. The catfish are good in al! sizes, but nobody wants to say what they're using to catch them. Other species are fairly slow. Report courtesy McQueeney Marina. Canyon Lake The heat "has slowed fishing almost to a standstill, although fishermen are catching a few black bass up to three pounds. The guides keep searching the lake for the deep, cool spring where the fish are beating the heat, but sc far without much success.

Teal migrate through the state ahead of most other waterfowl. Hours are the same as those for dove hunting. The limits are four daily and eight in possession, and the season runs Sept. 14-22. State and federal waterfowl stamps are required to shoot the ducks.
