Default Dove season in Illinois

Anybody going after doves on labor Day. I dont think that there are any cut fields in my neck of the woods, but hopefully i will jump a few while squirrel hunting.

I'm going Monday, 80 acres of cut sileage (sp?). Should make for a good shoot.

Yep, this time of the year, any cut field should have them piling in. We have some mennonite neighbors who are always cutting hay and silage, so if i am lucky, they might have an open field.

Will go Labor Day on some nearby public land, hope it isn't too crowded. Lanse, I once got drawn for Sam Parr State Park over by Newton on opening day..........it was nothing but a madhouse. I won't waste my gas doing that again!

I've heard about Sam Parr. Had a buddy that used to go up there for dove hunting from time to time. Think that I will stick to cruising around richland county and seeing if i can find a cut field.Otherwise, i will just have to make due with some squirrel and frog hunting thisweekend.

I'll be going out, but I think I might be checking out some early season canda geese. We haven't had too many doves down south lately...but we'll see how it works out.
