My dad helped ban 1,500 morning doves in Colorado this year and 1,000 last year. It is one of the projects they do in my home town area. My little brother hunted about 3 miles from where they caught and banded the doves and shot like 7 banded doves this morning.
It really kind of ticks me off, I have hunted for 30 plus years and have only shot 1 wing clip banded dove. It was a white wing put out for a wedding. My little brother has hunted for only 2 years and has shot over 50 banded birds.
