September 2, 2012 Blue Moon Dove Hunt

For some folks, Labor Day in Carolina equals a three-day weekend, a brief reprieve from the classroom or the office or one final trip to the beach.  For us fortunate few Labor Day weekend means one thing, the opening day of dove season.  Me and my two eldest ventured afield to take part in this time-honored tradition.  Below are some photos from our day.
