What is the bird? And is it good to eat?
That looks like a lot of gun for a tiny little dickie bird!
Glad to hear it is an edible species.
How do you hunt them? over decoys?
We have hunted them with decoys, when the birds are flying that is a good method. Cut grain field or water hole in the area in the pictures. Pass shooting with mod and full chokes. For pass shooting I use a 1 1/8 oz. load of # 7 1/2 in my 16 ga. Water holes and over grain 1 oz. of #8. Or #8 in the bottom barrel and #7 1/2 in the top. Dove pie is my favorite. Dark meat.
