    We also shot some skeet for warm up before we went out.

    Didn't get a good hit on that one. I had to throw my dog over a hogwire/barbed wire fence to get it.:rofl:

    I know, its tough for smaller folk to handle weapons like that.

    there used to be quite a bit of quail around where I lived. I caught them in a fishing net though.

    Dove rock!

    Ahh, marinated in teriaki/italian dressing then wrapped in bacon and grilled. Yummy.

    If interested, I have a dove chowder recipe that is to die for.

    Okay, yeah, that previous sentence did sound a touch gay, but it is really that good!

    I had to teach my GF to lean into the rifle when firing.
    She just isn't physically large enough to handle my 12ga and the only way for her to shoot it properly is to lean back.
    She doesn't like it much anyway.

    She shot a 20 ga o/u after my Nova. She had forgotten the 20ga. shells at the house, so she wanted to try the 12. Said it didn't hurt it was just too heavy. She hit quite a few when she switched to the lighter gun.

    No need to marinate dove unless you don't like the way they taste. We just soak them in ice water for about an hour before cooking them to get some of the blood out.

    Her cousin is lefty and has a left hand model 1100...I was actually hitting doubles shooting wrong handed:noes:

    Ask anyone about cooking dove and 9 out of 10 of them will answer with some variation of that. ;)

    I think that's because 9/10 people probably don't really like the taste of wild game.

    We soak ours in salt water to get the blood out. Works pretty well. soak for awhile then drain and repeat. Then you can either cook them or freeze 'em. The only bad thing about dove is that you have to have so many of them to feed people... wait that's not really a bad thing. ;)

    The best pre-soak is buttermilk.

    And as far as not liking the taste of game, that ain't it. How do you cook a steak? Unwrap it and toss it on the grill? No spices, no sauce, no marinade? If so, YUCK!

    not exactly the discussion at hand but if you must know....salt and pepper....I like the taste of beef too. It doesn't need all that fancy stuff unless your buying sub par beef.
