I plucked a few of the bigger ones this evening. It was really easy.

I'm going to try out a recipe called "Grilled Doves a La Mancha"

I have not, nor have I ever heard of anyone who has. Let us know how it turns out. Could be something I'd try.

All the time growing up. Riding in the back of the pickup headed home. Feathers flying.

Yep, just like quail and pheasants.
We also burned the birds over newspaper after plucking. Was my fav part as a kid.
All birds taste better bone in said my dad.

Very cool Guy. I think I'll pull a few out everytime from now on.

Birds are still thick out this way. Shot a limit + 2 ringneck again the evening.

I'm going to start pulling some off the bone also and grinding them up. One thing I want to make is dove chile rellenos.

Last count 14 bags of 45 dove in the freezer.

Always! Easier to handle, shove a jalapeño up in that carcass.

Yes we started plucking Eurasian doves. Roasting or grilling them. They turnout nice.

Fill a 5 gallon bucket with water. Submerge dove and roll it in your hands under water. Feathers come right off and you don't have a pile of feathers.

I've plucked a bunch, we usually lightly brown them and then cook them down in a gravy and serve over rice.

I picked a limit last Saturday. Soaked them in buttermilk for 8 hours then deep fried. Tossed in a honey-jalepeno wing sauce afterwards. Literally one of the best things I have cooked ever. Worth plucking the birds. Dove are a whole lot easier than teal/ducks

We did that a lot as a kid. My dad, brother, and I would pick 'em and my grandma cooked 'em that way. I got the recipe from my aunt last year, can't wait to give it a go.
