Where has the summer gone? It doesn't seem that long ago we were just recovering from a brutal winter and then a cool and wet spring kept many individuals from enjoying the productive spring fishing. We also had high water on many of the state's rivers for a prolonged period of time. Most area lakes were weeks behind much of the spring fishing season coupled with slow weed growth and below normal water temper-atures. Eventually, things straightened out and the fishing picked up and it has turned out to be a good fishing season.

Now, we are only a couple of weeks away from the opening of some of the Wisconsin's early hunting seasons which hopefully hunters take advantage of this opportunity. September 1st the mourning dove season opens (closes November 9 with an added 20 days of hunting this year) in Wisconsin and now is the time for hunters to begin their scouting if they haven't done some already. When scouting, look for locations that have grain and small seeds scat-tered on the ground like a recently harvested soybean or corn field. Harvesting will most likely start sometime in September, so may attention to the crop harvesting in the area that you plan on hunting. If roosting cover, water, and grit for digestion are close to the food source then you're in an area where you should find doves.
