I live in a place, where you only see most of the time feral pegeons and inca doves. You can see some mourning doves, white-winded doves and eurasian collar doves, but they are very rare to find at least close to the town where I live.
There are three rivers in my county, one of them, the Lerma river is just four blocks away from my home. I have noticed that the river is full of species of birds, most of them I like to enjoy and watch.
I only hunt inca doves, for most of the time. They are easy to find and their number is always high, so I hunt them whenever I have a chance. I must mention that they are very tasty and sure taste better than chicken.
It is very difficult to approach a mourning dove, white-winged dove or eurosian collar dove where I live. They fly away, as soon as they see you close to them. I have found a place where I have seen about eight mourning doves at the river bank. I have tried to shoot them down, but the place is full of bushes and the branches will not allow to have a clear shot not to mention that the closest distance that you can get is about 30 meters. It is very difficult to take down a mourning dove in those conditions.
Today, I went to the spot where I have seen the mourning doves and as usual try to get one, I was carring my huilotera resortera http://slingshotforu...ite-ok-why-not/ . As I was approaching the place, I noticed some more doves at a tree and tried to get closer slowly. I finally got a clear shot, aimed and shot, I was not really especting to hit the dove. I also thought that if I hit the dove it will fly away like a feral pegeon does (They are very hard to shoot down if you do not hit them on the right spot). I was very surprised that I have hit the dove and it went down like a rock. I jumped and yelled out SI!!! I have hit the dove at the neck. I have tried to get a mourning dove for years, but getting a white- winged dove was even better, since is harder to find them. The dove was still alive when it hit the ground but died short after.
About one hour later, I came across an inca dove and took a shot at it. I think, I hit a branch that slowed down the shot and did not have enogh energy to take down the inca dove. I took another taconite and shot it again. In the picture, you can not see its head. Well, I could not find it, after I shot it for the second time. As I removed the feathers later, I found the first hit at the right side of the breast area. The head was never found...
In the picture you can see the type of ammo I used to take down each dove and La huilotera resortera that I used to take them down with. As I shot down the white-winged dove, I remmembered about jmplsnt, since he asked me about the white ammo that I use for shooting. Jmplsnt, this one goes on your name.
Well, la huilotera (dove killer) lived after its name and proved it to be lethal. La huilotera rocks...
