I'm often seeing dove hunting videos, reports, nor blogs from dove hunters.
However, I don't recall seeing any of them use dove calls.

Anyone use them? or they just not worth it?

I made a spontaneous purchase and bought this dove call.

Works good with this: https://www.amazon.com/Avery-Hunting-Gea...&ref=plSrch

When they land in field, toot your whistle and they will come walking in. Then you can skillet shoot and get to drinking sooner.

I don't call dove, dove call me.

Otherwise, there is nothing wrong with an impulse buy.

I wonder if it would be considered baiting to spread out a bunch of biodegradable airsoft pellets into a field to hunt over like those corn on the cob decoys.

Give us a review after you use it for a couple of hunts and tell us if it's worth it.

I use the mojo decoy and use the dove in heat spray. If birds are within 1/4 mile the dove in heat spray will bring them in.
you can limit with a 410 single shot.

+1 for dove estrus. I usually hang a bunch right outside my pit blind... hanging down from 25 mojos. But we prefer an electronic caller over the whistle call, way less hassle. Plus the e-caller won't bring in white wings and that is crucial cuz you can't legally use it with them.

Both my son and I just call blowing in to our hands. Make a box with both hands and blow between our thumbs.

I have seen several birds turn and come into decoys once we start calling.

Does it work all the time, no. Would I buy a call, no. But it has definitely worked at times.
