Default Dove Plot

What combinations or single plants are you guys using for small dove tracts. I am thinking about putting in a nice little 30 foot square plot in my yard underneath some power lines. What are you guys planting to attrach the doves during season.

30 foot square???????? Probably a waste of time.

What would you consider the minimum size for a dove plot? I was thinking of sunflowers. I have about 150 acres that is mostly grass & trees w/ some relatively small food plots (1 acre or less)

I planted 1/2 an acre with millet. One day it looked like a scene fro Alfred Hitchcoks "The Birds" including some turkeys at the end. It took them about a 3 weeks to really clean it up and that seems like a good amount of time to shoot. Depends on the length of your season.
