Ahh a kindred spirit. I too will brave all adversity to be with the migratory crowd. In fact, my entire calender revolves around Labor Day in North Carolina. There is no kind of hunting (shooting) that gets me more revved up than the revered dove. The thing for me however is the wonderful kinship with the people that I hunt with. It's a true social event.
"Take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented."
