There are several coveys of dove in our neighborhood. (I know bunches of quail are called coveys ... just assuming bunches of dove are too). They are fat as chickens and pretty tame. The dogs and I can sit on the patio and they will come down into the backyard and feed in the little sand/food pit I created for them, play around in the water (an old clay dish you set pots on to hold the drips) and coo ... I am trying to figure out the best way to catch the little buggers without firing a shot. Air guns are legal but I don't have one and am wondering if a live trap would work. Any ideas?? The only dove I have ever taken have been with a shotgun in the middle of a pasture so any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!!
