Hmmmm . . . that does sound good. I'd probably add garlic powder and onion powder, but I add those to everything.

Ain't no cookin' in this one.

Best Dove anything I ever had was Pickled Dove Breasts. The lady who made it was a master of her craft. Those things were Grrrrrreeat. Fish one out, put it on a cracker, one big bite and it was gone.

She said that if the guys would clean them she could rinse and pickle as much as they got with no problem.

I like to pepper them until they smoke.

When I was a lad, I used to go down to the local Sportsmen's Club on Mondays after school and wade into the marsh behind their shooting range (deserted, of course) and collect all the unbroken clay pigeons. I had quite a collection of all different types and colors.
Some of my friends collected old beer cans, etc...but I found clay pigeons more easily obtained.

I do eat the dove I shoot, but my favorite bird is quail and I shoot a lot of them. Recipes are interchangable. Next is pheasant, then chuckar. Don't have any grouse in my area, but I've hunted them elsewhere.

1/2 cup soy sauce

Dice onions and celery. Simmer with the butter for 15 min.
Add dove breasts; Simmer for 30 minutes.Flip the breasts over and simmer for another 30 minutes.

A few years ago my Dad invited all of the kids home for a fish fry. "Bring all the fish you have in the freezer" was the call.
When we got there I found that one foil wrapped package were dove from the year before. I was going to throw them out but my Dad battered them up and cooked them in the fish fryer and they were the best I'd ever had.

You ate pigeons? pigeons???? Did you try the rats too?

When I was home on leave from the service I dusted off the old 12 bore double barrel and got a bunch of pigeons from the harvested corn field acroos the road. Just plain roasted with salt & pepper, they tasted fine.

Years later, in about 1970, I was working (and had living quarters at) a night club on the East Side of Manhattan. I looked across the street one day and saw about fifty pigeons flocked on the sidewalk, eating who knows what. Suddenly a guy jumped out of an alley wilh a big net and scooped up a bunch of them. I assume he baited them

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.

Dove hunting is my favorite. I'm pretty good too. I started hunting with my grandpa when I was 10 years old and that's the one hunt that I still like to go on. I like the challenge of knocking them out of the air. We've got lots of Dove in this area. In fact, I can step out into the country behind my house and scare them up most any day. Of course, there are quail too, and I like to hunt them as well. I had then and still have a 410. That's my bird gun. Bird season is coming up in September. :o)

Sounds good! Doves are more appropriate than chicken, too. IIRC cacciatore is Italian for hunter.

I grew up on dove & quail here in Texas.... Mom browned them and then laid them on a bed of wild rice and covered them in mushroom soup...

I think everything was covered in mushroom soup in the 60s...

I wish I had a plate of dove and quail & my Mom to share them tonight!!!!!

Season with salt and pepper. Wrap with a slice of bacon, and wedge a slice of jalapeno pepper between the bacon and bird. Grill.

That's the way I always do them. I've done the sautee route, but I like the grill method best.

Each little half breast is only good for a bite or two. I find them very nice when marinated in lime juice, browned with a little oil or bacon grease, and dumped in a stew or chili for a good long slow simmer. I also had them teriyaki-style once in a restaurant. Not bad.

I still prefer quail and pheasant, though.

Around these parts the best way to hunt dove is from the back of a pickup truck. just drive along a long row of corn and blast them off the power lines. Of course it isnt legal that way but I have seen it done.

The dove isnt a very big bird and about the only thing worth saving is the breast meat, but it sure is good.

I let the dove breasts soak in vinegar and water for about an hour, then wrap each one with a strip of bacon and cook in an oven for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees. I sprinkle each tasty little breast with lemon pepper before they go in. Some I use Del's sauce on but the simpler, the better. I then serve the dove on wild rice with green beans as a side, rolls, and a good zinfindel or chardonnay. I eat the little darlings within two or three days after I shoot em'.

Recipe 1

Lightly boil dove breast in diluted orange juice to kill the gamy taste and dry on a paper towel. Cover the breast with a mixture of orange marmalade and Tabasco sauce and cook over hot coals to caramelize the sugar. Hotter pepper sauces can be substituted, depending on taste.

Recipe 2

Mix soy sauce, water, and finely chopped ginger root. Lightly boil dove breast in this. Vary the amount of ginger root depending on taste. Dry well and pan fry in a small amount of sesame seed oil.

Of course we'd eat them. Have to be careful not to overcook, though.

1) Wrap dove in bacon & broil. Good w/rice & mushrooms.

2) Marinate (20 min or so enough) & stir fry -- can supplement with chicken if hunting wasn't good. I was going to say "if it wasn't a good day", but every day we'd go out hunting was a good day. Over!

Can you imagine how horrified the pink (code pink) people would be to learn that people actually eat birds? Leetle, leeetle birds of peace, that never hurt anybody.

I'm sure that some of them would cringe at the thought, right after attending dinner with such peaceful, thoughful, historical figures as Hugo Chavez, Brother Fidel Castro, etc., that people actually consume helpless animals with no choice in the matter.

Thanks for all the recipes, fellow freepers. Now I must go and consume an animal, and lots of cruel byproducts (burp)
