I am going to try this has anyone tried this and actually hit one? Be honest

From: Cowdoc Date: 30-Aug-10
I've done this many times. Never hit one yet but did make a couple juke and dodge. I figure I didn't do any worse than I do with a shotgun.

From: ToddT Date: 30-Aug-10
Seeing that my average is about 2 maybe 3 per box of shotgun shells,,,, I really wouldn't want to go there. But then, like Cowdoc said, I probably couldn't do much worse.

all i can say is good luck

From: arctichill Date: 31-Aug-10
I have done it successfully, but the dove was drinking at a dirt tank (65 yards away though). In the air....good luck.

I saw that crazy guy on Arrow Affliction trying to do it. I can't recall whether or not he ever connected??

I have shot pheasant but good luck on doves.I did see video of some guys shooting quail in the air but doves move differently.

From: Cowboy in Colorado Date: 31-Aug-10
Todd - don't feel bad - the national average is 3 per box of shells!

I know I couldn't hit a dove with my bow, unless it was sitting on a fence...

From: wolfriver hunter Date: 31-Aug-10
I know I would lose all my arrows before I even came close to hitting one in the air. But it would be fun to sling a few and see what happens.

From: J.E. Travis Date: 31-Aug-10
Well, the money you save on shells will by a couple of buckets of KFC... assuming you find all your arrows.

From: Norseman Date: 31-Aug-10
Cancelled due to game violations?

you care to expand on that? just curious.

From: pumatagger Date: 31-Aug-10
I connected on my first arrow at a dove...46 years ago. I took the bird about 3 feet off the ground as it was landing. Twenty years later as I was practicing for a bighorn hunt I took one at my office to make a point to a coworker who thought bows were too inaccurate to hunt "trophy" big game. That dove was sitting on a branch and my judo point cut both wings off. I have taken several other doves < 10 over the years...all but the first on the ground or perched.

I kill a limit of doves with my bow every year just for the challenge and to get ready for big game. They are all on the ground not in the air. Larry
