I hunted a dove field on our local wildlife area. Because the season passed at the last minute our DNR rushed to put in sunflower plots. Not all the hasty plantings were successful. I chose the one that failed and produced a bumper crop of ragweed instead. My thinking was, it wouldn't attract any hunters, but doves would probably eat ragweed seeds as happily as they eat sunflowers. And, based on yesterday's hunt, they do.
