Opening morning after we got back to the ranch my FIL opens his vest and I look in and see a bird with a thin metal rod sticking out of the belly of a dove. It looked like a decoy bird, so I picked it up, but it was a real one. I tried to pull the rod out, but it was grown in there. I wish I had gotten a pic of it before they cleaned them. The rod was about the size of pencil lead. Ive never seen anything like that before. There was about 3 inches sticking out

I am thinking maybe was one of those wire rods that you see on the top of buildings like Walmart that they install to keep birds out? Maybe it got lodged and broke off and never came out?

They cleaned it and said it was just a straight rod grown into it. Just another oddities. Could be a blow dart from last years season!

We were in Ellis County It was about the same thickness as a dart, so its possible. Shot was a little low for a kill shot. Im still kicking myself for not taking a pic of it.
