Oh yeah, we shoot them around the grain barges....about 100 or so at a time. Make great grill fare.
Pigeon, uh...I mean Rock Dove is aplenty here. They fly higher, faster, and can be a little tougher to bring down...pigeonhunter said:hey cordite,any places where we can still hunt them here in CA.
I lost my old haunts when the dairies I hunted at changed formans.
Not the robin, God save us, not the State Bird of Michigan!Cougar said:Robins and crows are sometimes killed and eaten by "adventureous folks" as well.
Rock Dove, Squab, pigeon, etc. is a cousin of the dove. Just has more meat to them...Cougar said:It indeed tasted like dove. Many a time I've read accounts that squab was often eaten in this country's restuarants.
soreshoulder Not the robin said:There used to be this old Italian gentleman in my neighborhood that would eat just about anything with wings. This guy used to sit in his yard and prop up the equivilant of a large screen door, on a stick. He would throw some hard bread under that screen, then tie a long string to the stick and hide off to the side around 10 to 20 yards away. He'd sit back and wait for a gang of ANY type of bird to start eating the bread. Once there was enough to clean he'd pull the string and gather dinner :shock: He'd twist their necks, gut them, and cook em head and all! He would use a nut cracker to get the head open and eat away.
I used to offer this guy venison and he would only want the head. We made it a point never to nap anywhere near this guys house!
