Killed a morning dove with a band this afternoon!!!!! I was sitting on my dove stool and thought to myself "wouldn't it be cool if I turned around and there was a band on a doves leg" I spun around and the first dove I saw on the top of the pile was banded!!! I am still kind freaked out about it. Guess I got ESPN. Lol. Image. Image

That is pretty sweet. I have hunted central Texas dove season my entire life and killed my share of doves and have never killed a banded dove nor have I ever met someone that ever has. Impressive sir!

I'm really curious, how far from Weiner were you when you took that dove?

Brah, racing pigeons are pets. That's ok though, they're double banded sometimes. :thumbsup:
