    I haven't had my hunting license in years, but I want to try and get out for dove and rabbit this year.

    It is interesting, being a life long hunter and growing up around 'outdoors' people. The more time I get one social media the less I find people get outside, especially hunting.

    Really bugging me I am not out today, but I know I have a lot of season ahead of me.

    It's not something I've been able to do for about 7 years now. But, I sure plan to enjoy some dove meat supplied by family here soon. Good luck to your season!

    Same to you @kami3006 . Dove Kabobs are a personal fave of mine!

    Last year with the boys was awesome!

    Beautiful day for being out. Great pic.
    Our season in VA starts on the 5th I believe. I may try some dove kabobs, that sounds fabulous.

    lol. Dove is a dark meat so not like chicken actually. Though quail tastes like very sweet chicken akin to pheasant.

    I've had squab...guessing it's more like that. They're all just pigeons, aren't they
