We left Lincoln around 5:30 got to our destination in Live Oak at 6:30. Loaded up the gear and were shooting by 7 a.m.. Non stop action until we limited out about 10:30. All the doves we shot were Mourning Doves. On Saturday we started out a little earlier and had our limits by 8 a.m. No Eurasian collared doves so far this year. Here is the recipe I used for the dove.

2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup raspberry preserves
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar ( or substitute 1/3 cup red wine vinegar)
1/3 cup green onions, chopped
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 cup olive oil

Instructions
Season doves with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, whisk together garlic, preserves, vinegar, onions and mustard. While whisking, add oil in a thin stream until emulsified. Place doves in bowl, toss to coat, cover and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours. Bake, broil, pan-sear or barbecue until rare to medium-rare and still juicy in the center of the breast.

Great job. I would like to try hunting. Do you normally join a guide or shoot on your own?
Are these farmed birds?

We shoot on this land once a year.... Thats it!! This year we made an exception because of the amount of birds that were on and around the area. We don't shoot good unless other groups of people in and around us are shooting on different pieces of property. This is private land, we don't use a guide or farm birds. This was a great dove season with really good friends and family. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
