Old Fashioned Dove Hunt

A few weeks ago, the hubby had a few friends and family over for a old fashioned dove hunt.

The boys were so excited to be able to go in the field after school!

Nolan was even more excited that he would get to use the gun he got for Christmas!

Little brother hung back to watch the action….Momma was a little nervous to let him on the front lines.

Probably one of my favorite pictures from the entire dove hunt is this one:

And guess what?  Nolan shot and killed his first dove!  Y’all.  He was SO PROUD.  And I do mean proud!  He told anyone that would listen that he killed a dove!  HA!

Little brother finally got in on the action!

It so happened that my Uncles and cousins from nearby came to the dove hunt and I got to spend some time with them as well in the field.

What a wonderful day to spend time with friends and family!



  1. What a nice story and how you presented it! Kids DO grow up very fast indeed and we need to preserve every moment of it. Love to all, Grandma

  2. I bet the boys were in heaven! This reminds me of the dove hunts j and dad took part in.

  3. Handsome little hunters you have there. Looks like they had lots of fun.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one and treasure every word!
