Dove Hunt - Holyoke, CO
Participating organizations – Freedom Hunters and Operation TBI Freedom
This is our third year Dove Hunting in Holyoke, hosted by Allen Strong. We have six wounded veterans participating. Everyone arrives around 10 am. The weather is cool and overcast so there are not many doves flying. We spread out in two man groups next to the corn fields. A few shots are fired bu no doves in the vest. We flushed four pheasant but we will be back in November to to try our luck with bigger birds. We did knock a few birds down before lunch when the sun comes out and the temperature rises but only a few more birds show up. Everyone is still having a great time. Lunch is prepared by Allen, his wife and friend also named Allen. We have pheasant and brats. Great lunch and a great day. A big thanks to Allen and friends.
