Abstract

The top requirement to attract doves is to provide bare ground, where they can forage and walk around on dirt. Many types of food plots attract doves. Doves particularly like sunflowers, but sunflowers have a long growing season and require extensive site preparation. Wheat also works well and needs less site preparation, but requires more planning. Millet varieties and annual weeds are less attractive to doves, but can be a great substitute if planting is delayed or for late season hunting.
