Posted this in the recipe section but thought I'd share.

Got around to trying out some of the plucked dove.

Was excellent!

Ok I know...."really you plucked your dove?"

Yes, I plucked some dove. It's actually very easy. I would not pluck every dove I shot but a limit or two a season is worth it. Just clip the wings, head and feet. Pull off all the feathers. Cut the rear end and pull out the guts with one finger. Takes a few seconds longer than the typical breasting method.


Bacon fat or olive oil

Pat dove dry.
Salt inside and out
Baste in bacon fat

Grill breast side up on high heat for 5-6 minutes
Breast side down for few minutes until you get the skin nice and crisp.

Dust with pepper and paprika


Grill tomatoes, onion and peppers until soft. Grill fresh garlic or substitute with garlic salt.
Blend grilled veggies with a hand full of cilantro.
Salt to taste.

I've been picking doves since the beatles came over...
if you use a small knife and split them up the backbone, easy cleaning...
plus you can use the giblets in stews and such...
