    It's a morning dove, yes, they are good to eat. That was the only one we saw all afternoon. Usually the shooting is fast and furious, not this year though.

    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.
