I will gladly shoot a piegon purely on principle. Any dove that flys through a dove field in early september deserves the same fate. Be it mourning, Eurasian, rock, or otherwise.

My thoughts exactly. My problem with eating pigeons, especially around a dairy farm, is they are usually resident pigeons that spend a lot of time living in, on, and around cow poop. I have seen them eat the grain from fresh piles of cow poop. That is not a bird I want to eat. Might taste like filet mignon wrapped in bacon, but I know what they eat. I do shoot them on site every time, most dairy farmers view them as pests, and want them gone. Plus they make a great thud sound when they fall out of the sky.

We shoot them in our dove fields, but don't eat them. Coyotes got to eat. Like Kimberman says, I know what they eat (Grain out of cow poop), and I aint eating that. I also like the thud sound they make when hitting the ground.

EVERY turkey that spends time in or around a cow pasture (even when you kill them elsewhere) eats grain out of cow poop, and they all taste delicious.

Very true and good point. That would lead us to the next question: Does a hunter who refuses to eat pigeons also refuse to eat catfish?
