Do hunters actually eat these birds? I'm sitting at my computer, while outside my window several doves are bobbling around my bird feeder. They look to have about 6 ounces of meat between the two of them. The image of grown men donning camo, strapping on the ammo and venturing bravely forth to bring home a string of....well almost pigeons... would surely be funny if not so sadly bizarre. Muskegonites, call Rep. Farhat today!
