Thank you for your replies. I ended up getting out really late (right at sundown) and was only able to hunt for about 25 minutes, but I still got 3 doves!!! It had cooled down quite a bit into the low 80's, so I was able to wait until I got home go beast them (so much easier than cleaning rabbits!), as I only live 5 minutes away from this hunting ground.
I had a great time, and actually met another much more experienced local hunter who was a very cool guy. He helped me learn more about the area, and also told me about another great dove field 2 miles away. Heading out for another late morning hunt right now!
Good hunting everyone!
