Limits Sunday, Monday, one short of limit Tuesday, limit today too. Northern IL has been great so far. We're seeing 30-40 shootable birds in 3 hours each day and probably 200-500 birds out past 50 yards in the same time.

One thing we're noticing is only about 50-50 young birds to old which doesn't bode well if this is common elsewhere this year.

Shot my first dove with a Fed band on it today so that's something new. I have to call it in and find out the bird's history.

No exotic doves seen yet this year in Northern IL though, just mourning doves. Central IL was overrun with Eurasian Collard doves last year so they are slowly invading.
