Oh my gosh!! I could not put up with all that as long as you did! Is Dove meat 
really that good? I would not think there would be much meat on them.

Dove hunting is still popular here in Texas and I don't like it. My bird feeder 
stays full all the time and I have two doves that come in the late afternoon 
and feed on the seed that is on the ground around the bird feeder. They are 
beautiful birds.  I only have one pigeon that lost it's mate about 3 yrs ago 
that comes around my feeder as well.  I could never imagine shooting them.

  Your posts reminded me of something that happened 40+ years ago on our family 
farm in Central California... during dove hunting season.
  We did not allow hunters on our property, but when dying doves fell in our 
fields and pastures after being shot nearby, hunters would climb over our 
fences to retrieve the bloody bodies.  One afternoon the shotgun pellets were 
raining down on our roof and through the branches of our oak trees and we were 
afraid to go outside so Mom called the county sheriff.  When he arrived to talk 
to them about unsafe shooting... Mom noticed his hand was bandaged...an idiot 
dove hunter had actually shot the deputy in the hand!!!  Go figure!
  When I drove my 25 miles to work, each morning I felt like a cardboard duck 
in a fair shooting gallery... groups of "hunters" parked on their backsides 
sitting on coolers of beer with umbrellas erected overhead would wait on both 
sides of the road for flocks to fly over.  I managed to get to work unscathed 
for 5 years, but was never certain I would survive the Sept - Nov. annual 
killing season.  Our hunting neighbor across the road went out with a few 
friends and came back with only one eye... not a single "friend" would admit he 
fired the blinding shot.  Nice, huh?
