Unhappy When I felt remorse about hunting of a dove (Video)


Some events during hunting make me think and review my doing.
One of these events was with a dove.
I saw it over a building.
The distance was 85 yards.
On this day I was hesitant to shoot it.
I do not know why?
Something like a voice within my soul was saying do not shoot this dove, it should live!
But I had not listen to advice.
I pressed the trigger.
The dove fell over the roof.
When I went to get it.
It was bleeding and standing like a statue.
There was a spot of blood beneath dove.
This means that it has not moved from its place since its fall.
I approached dove.
It did not move.
This is unnatural because doves in Egypt are very afraid of people.
Something made dove overcome its instinctive fear of people. Maybe that was a great pain or unknown thoughts in its mind make it do not care.
When I had touched dove, it suddenly a little flew then stood again.
Dove was looking at me.
I saw incomprehensible look in its eye.
I felt that the dove was weeping without tears.
As if it felt its death approaching.
I felt that the dove was blaming me and saying why did you do that? This is my life; I have nothing but this life. You do not have a right to eat me.
For the first time I felt guilty about hunting.I regretted stealing life of this dove.
I remained depressed to the end of the day.
Time was enough to erase the sense of remorse.But remembrance and lesson remain

You shot at a dove at 85 yards, you should not only feel remorse you should be ashamed. You were not all that remorseful that you could not take a video. I am completely unimpressed and not amused and skeptical that it happened and that you would write about your actions if indeed it happened..

Well, you speak according to a different culture from our culture in Egypt .We eat doves.If the doves were not killed by shooting at once, we should slaughter them with a knife, and this is what happened with this dove.The point here is the reaction of the dove based on thoughts in its mind.We have no problem with the distance.
Note: I think you did not watch video

We only hunt them in the late fall here, the season goes from the first of November to the middle of January. If you have a choice you shoot the singles and not one of a pair. We shoot mostly the stragglers, those that didn't migrate early.
Grilled Dove with a butter and Galliano liqueur baste, served with mixed white and wild rice is good stuff.

Try removing the breasts in one piece and putting a piece of Jalapeno pepper about a half inch wide in the space between the two halves, then wrap the breast in bacon and put them on the grill. Best appetizer ever, or just a good snack with a beer.

I always say a little prayer. Bless us, O Lord, and these, Thy gifts, which we are about to receive from Thy bounty or through the teeth, past the gums, look out stomach, here it comes, amen.

I stopped hunting doves when I'd loose them in a corn field after they dropped. I didn't have a dog and couldn't find them too many times. I hate waste and just not going to do that any longer. I have eaten a few, all dark meat, nothing worth cleaning except the breast. Not bad eaten, but I prefer squirrel or venison.
