Well I went on my first dove hunt in Yuma, AZ last weekend on opening day. It was hotter than hell. I think the daytime temps were 105+. From what I heard there were not as many birds as the prior years. Still had a lot of fun.. If I was a better wing shooter I would have had quicker limits. I had never shot a shotgun before at moving targets. I was also using a borrowed shotgun. Had a good time. Met some cool folks. I'll be planing to go next year. Just cooked up the meat tonight. I had never had dove before and everyone does all kinda crap to the meat to try to make it taste good. I was really skeptable. I thought I would cook it up, take a bite and trash it.. Well, I was pleasantly suprised how good the meat tasted. I really liked it and did not doctor it up any more than I would chicken. Here is how I preped them. Took the whole breast and cut the breast meat off the bone. Put them on a skewer with onion and red and green bell peppers. Put them on the bbq and drizzled Bernstines Italian dressing on them. Seasoned with Montreal Chicken Seasoning. Cooked til bird and veggies were done. Tasted Great! No gamey taste. Was much like chicken thigh. Late!
