If you’re going dove hunting, it’ll help if you know some of their habits. Let’s take a look here at where they’re most likely to congregate: near water or food sources, by graveling spots, or at roosting locations. For food doves like crops that produce seeds such as sunflower, millet, wheat, and all grains. Graveling refers to their need to consume grit from sand bars, gravel paths, and dirt roads; graveling helps them digest seeds. And when it comes to water, doves prefer drinking right at dawn and dusk and like to drink in areas free of vegetation. As with any game, knowing their habits will help you find them, which will, in turn, make you a better hunter.
These 12 gauge rounds have 1 ¼ ounce loads, making them truly powerful rounds. At 1 ¼ ounces they’re capable of producing significant force. Each shell is packed with #6 shot; this is lead shot, so it shouldn’t be used for waterfowl. This is Federal’s Game Shok ammunition; it’s specifically made for hunting upland birds but can also be used for target shooting. Each round moves fast with a muzzle velocity of 1220 feet per second and each shell is 2 ¾” long.
When you order this box of ammunition from Federal you get 250 rounds. If that seems like more than enough to last you throughout the season, there’s a good chance it isn’t, especially if you hunt doves. Doves – and other upland birds – can be difficult to hit even for experienced hunters, so it shouldn’t be a surprise if you need quite a bit of ammunition. Of course, practice will help you land those hits with greater accuracy, and what does practice require? Ammunition. Federal manufactures this ammunition at their plant in Anoka, Minnesota; each shell adheres to strict standards for quality and performance. Order today and have a great hunting season – you bring the shot placement and let Federal do the rest.
