If you are referring to mourning doves, FEDERAL regulations prohibit hunting them with an airgun.Specifically International Migratory Games Law Treaties regulate hunting of mourning doves. Laws of individual states vary quite a lot, but the Federal regulations apply to all states. In addition to any Federal laws, one must always check the State laws, and even the County and/or City regulations, as the local regs can be even more restrictive than anything on a higher level.game department specifies shotguns only for game birds as the mourning dove. In most states that I am aware of Collared doves are not a game bird and considered invasive. There is no bag limit on them and use of airgun is ok. So the answer is NO. You may only use a shotgun.
