A field of blooming sunflowers is something every good dove hunter loves to see before the Texas Dove Hunting Season. When these sunflowers mature, they are one of the best dove attractants for doves. White winged and mourning dove can’t seem to resist the high oil content of sunflower seeds. In Texas sunflower is usually planted in May so that the seed will be dry enough for dove to access by September during Opening Weekend. Sunflower can make your South Texas Dove Hunt a success. .
