Here's the scenario: Your dove hunting a tank opening weekend and getting close to a limit. The 85 year old landowner shows up with his shotgun and sits down next to you. He says, " Son, my eyesight is getting too bad to hit these dove. I'll sit here next to you and may shoot one if it gets within 10 yards. I'd appreciate it if you would go ahead and kill the rest for me because I have company coming in and we want a mess of dove." I know what the law says but what would you do?

I would go back back to my truck and pull one of the other 5 limits I shot earlier and give it to him.

I think ANY breaking of the law should NOT be encouraged...What happens hunting stays in the field. ... MHO

depends if you are a man or a Politically Correct mouse -------- a man would help an 85 yr old and shoot his doves----- I am hoping sclebuster is a 19 yr old college student and has not learned how the real world works yet. Laws are a suggestion of proper behavior, little else -------- ask Hillary if you dont believe me.

I'd be sure his company would have an awesome mess of fried dove for supper...
and no doubt you'll get more opportunities at a later date...
nothing wrong w/gifting your birds....

I wish I was a 19 year old college student. Or at least wish my girlfreind was. I know what I would do, I'm just wondering what people from the forum would do. Or if they would honestly admit to what they would do.

Help him out, because you know ornery can be sometimes, you may get a call the next morning you're welcome to stop coming out and hunt on the property.

I like this answer. That may be the first time I've laughed out loud at the screen.

Get your limit and give it to him. If you have some back home, do the same. Don't break the law.

I grew up in a country where hunting was a regulatory mess with hunters being routinely harassed. I appreciate the rights and protections afforded to me as a hunter here, even with all the hiccups and areas where things can be improved upon. Don't get in trouble over doves.

Also, given the old fella's poor eyesight, it is in your best interest that he doesn't shoot, as some have commented above smile
