2020-2021 DOVE CLUB

The James River is a natural thoroughfare for both resident and migrating dove. Our Gregory Island and the nearby farmhouse fields offer a continuing a volley for moving birds. With 5 years of continued growth and the addition of an agronomist, this season will showcase our largest and most diverse plantings. As always, the hospitality here is as important the hunt. Stay tuned for more details as the season approaches.
