dove 8 minus 1


i went dove hunting this weekend. ive been out one other time this season but didnt take any pictures. i killed 8 birds (only 7 in the pic. added one after i took this photo) and should have had a limit with no problem. i missed about 6 "easy" birds. one just about landed on my face. jimmy edwards who was next to me got his limit by 4pm. stayed till 6pm so i probably missed my chance for a limit during that last flight dove like to make as the sun is setting. had a great time and plenty of dove flying. hopefully the next phase will have birds like this.

those "poor little" birds have a life span of 1 to 2 years. so i might as well shoot them and eat them.

dude, if your kids had a life span of 1 - 2 years, i'm pretty sure you would object to my eating them. and it wouldnt matter if i told you that they would be marinated in herbs and spices, pan fried and smothered in gravy, you would still object. which is ridiculous, considering you have three kids-more/less-and i have none; you could stand to cook one up.

chris, dont come begging me for any tasty little dove nuggets after that comment! dove are not human and are made for my consumption. yum yum. my kids are human (some might argue against that) and are not made for your consumption. besides, who would want to eat my kids? they are nasty little suckers.
