Rebuilding a few old threads...

Here're some photos from when Matt went dove hunting over at Mac's place back in September (hard to believe it was so long ago).

These doves are closer to the pigeon family. I've been trying ot get Mac and his crew out here to NYC to take care of the 7.8 million pigeons I encounter every day on my way to work.

It doesn't seem like it was that far back since you posted those Nate.

Those were some great shots of Matt and Mac and the gang. :cool:




(but not so great of the doves :cry: maybe next time you could get some shots of them "flying", you know, before the kill :unsure-1: )

I was out picking off a couple of squirrels the other day, and i kicked up a bunch of doves. A little cold for those babies to still be here.

Pigeons also go by the name Rock Dove, and yes, they are very closely related.

When you hunt coyotes do you use a varmint gun (.223, 22 mag) or a shotgun? Here in NM we use shotguns at night cause the coyotes come running in so fast and run off even faster lol. 00 buck works great
