I've shot them, and Starlings around my place with a pellet rifle, so shot damage is not severe.  Unfortunately, once you pop a couple of Starlings and Eurasian Doves, they seem to pass the word and avoid that area, so all I get are the dumb ones.  The call of the Eurasian Dove is similar to the call of the Mourning Dove, but raspier especially at the end of the call, and they "hoot" when they are flying.  It must be some sort of a warning to others, because they hoot when they fly over me and see me!  :chuckle:
If it was easy, everybody would be doing it.

When Bernie Madoff did it, it's called a "Ponzi Scheme"
When Government does it, it's called "Social Security"

We now have a large sample of Collared Doves from WA Hunters Forum donors.  At this time we don't need any additional birds, but if you've already shot some we welcome those donations.  Thanks again for your generosity.

Sweet! The internet finally did a good thing.    :tup:

Jimbo: "That's right, Stanley. Animals are much easier to shoot in the morning."
