Show Us Your Dove Recipes and Prove Anti-Hunters Wrong- (08/28) Michigan Join our e-mail alert list
In their quest to ban dove hunting in Michigan by ballot in November, anti-hunters have stated repeatedly that doves are not eaten by hunters, giving the impression that they are left in the field to rot.
The U.S. Sportsmens Alliance wants sportsmen across the country to prove the anti-hunters wrong by submitting their best dove recipe and perhaps winning a sportsmens prize package for doing so.
Anti-hunting groups in Michigan have created a campaign of misinformation designed to win the votes of urban-dwellers and non-hunters across the state. Within every treatise they print or email about why dove hunting should be banned, they state that doves are nothing more than live target practice. There isnt enough meat on them to make eating them worthwhile. And in fact, they give the impression that no one eats them.
As any sportsman lucky enough to bring home a limit of doves knows, there is a reason that doves are the most popular gamebird in America. Beyond the fact that doves routinely challenge the shooting skills of even the best wingshot, they just plain taste good. Whether its grilled, fried or roasted, doves are at the top of the pile when it comes to good wild game fare.
In response to this falsehood by the anti-hunters the U.S. Sportsmens Alliance is asking sportsmen for their best dove recipe. For a gamebird that no one eats, there sure are a lot of recipes for preparing them and the USSA wants them all.
Send your best dove recipe and it will be posted on the USSA website. Show the anti-hunters in Michigan that, in fact, sportsmen do eat doves. There are as many recipes for preparing them as there are hunters fighting to continue hunting these great gamebirds.
Send your recipes, along with name, address, email address and telephone number to email@example.com or to Dove Recipes, U.S. Sportsmens Alliance, 801 Kingsmill Parkway, Columbus, OH 43229-1137.
All recipes will be posted, along with the name and state of its contributor. All who send in a recipe will be eligible for a sportsmens prize package featuring a Gerber knife, a Streamlight flashlight and USSA travel mug, shooting shirt and camo and blaze orange cap.
All who contribute a recipe will be eligible. Please send as many recipes as you wish, however only one entry will be submitted in the prize drawing per contributor. Only one prize package will be awarded. The winner will be chosen, at random, on October 1.

They should have one of those cook offs, where people can sample the recipes and have judges taste test them. Best way to determine the winner.
best recipe for clay birds??????
I'd like to contribute a dove recipe. Trouble is I never seem to be able to hit the little buggers. I'm death on quail, but those fast-moving little grey birds have always gotten the best of me.
Give me a nice big, bird like a goose, pheasant, or turkey, any day. I can hit them.
I don't do the cooking so I don't have the recipe, but I love them sauteed in a skillet with brown gravy.
I remember when PETA launched its anti fishing campaign. They went to a fishing tournament to protest cruelty to the fish.
A local radio station set up a remote broadcast across from the PETA protestors, they had a free fish fry for the public. It was great.
Clean the dove. Make an eggwash and put doves in. Roll em in peppered flour. Fry til crisp. Eat about a thousand of them. Wait til deer season and repeat recipe. Squirrel season...repeat. Bake the turkey. fry the fish. Gun em down and cook em up. Love that Ted Nugent.
Stick dove between teeth and gums. Enjoy smokeless dove satisfaction all day.
I've only had dove a few times, it was incredibly delicious.
Dove and shallots, french sauce, damn fine dining experience.
Kill it and Grill it! .....with lots of garlic butter..........
It has been a long time but I seem to remember it goes like this: Skin out breast, throw the skin legs and wings away, salt pepper, dredge in flour and deep fry. Even a caveman could do it. Yum!
Have sample "Dove Nuggets" at your polling place for folks to try.
Grew up and worked on a farm in upstate NY. Had a huge wire silo that we always filled with corn, and the pigeons were very well fed. Routinely took half a dozen birds or so, man were they good!
A little olive oil in the pan. Onion, celery, carrot and some garlic gets sauteed. Add dove meat. when almost done, remove from pan. Deglaze with some cabernet, run through strainer, add a little flour, salt and pepper and return bird meat to pan.
Serve with wild rice and veggie of choice. Drink rest of wine in bottle.
Or how I used to do it in NYC.
Wait outside of UN for Doves to appear. On any given Sunday there could be dozens of them. Laugh hysterically at them, call them code pinkos and go to Blarney Stone for some beer and bangers.
Season with salt and pepper. Wrap with a slice of bacon, and wedge a slice of jalapeno pepper between the bacon and bird. Grill.
Hilarious and good eating, too!
