Got a few dove last weekend and rolled up some dove nuggets for the Texans game today. Simple bacon, cream cheese, fresh jalapeno, salt and pepper. And of course dove!
Never had squab but if its domestic, then dove is probably "gamier". Dove meat when first cleaned is a red color like most wild game. Mine looks pink in the pictures from soaking almost a week in water.Interesting. Never had Dove. I wonder if it's the same tasting as squab.
The Squab I had was wild. Straight from the local farmers field. And the diet between the two shouldn't be too different. Which got me to thinking about the taste.Never had squab but if its domestic, then dove is probably "gamier". Dove meat when first cleaned is a red color like most wild game.

Some don't care for it, I love it!
Dang! Hope it clears out. They will be back!All of our dove hunting grounds were flooded this year...no dove for me. Deep sigh!
Your poppers look great though! Like!
P.S. We are still flooded a bit even though the press no longer follows it. Water should be back to normal about the first of the year. This happened (RR bridge getting wiped out by a log jam and flood waters) a little under two weeks ago:
Iv plucked a few and some ducks. For dove it's not really worth if for me. Not much meat on those little legs.Dove are Awesome!!!
Used to eat a lot of them, when my Dad was still around.
Pretty much quit when we lost him.
Only one hunting yet is Bear Jr, and usually only for Deer & Bear.
Bear Jr had a Buddy who used to pluck Doves & make the whole things, just like Little Bitty Thanksgiving Turkeys!! No I never had one of them, but I saw Pics. LOL
Thanks Chile! I love wild game, the hogs can get a little funky depending on their diet, definitely had some bad. The ones we have in W Tx are delicious and fatty.Love me some Dove.
Those look mighty tasty, nice job on the cook.
And a big congrats on the Carousel ride.
Truth be told I've seldom eaten any game I didn't care for, except maybe for a few hogs.
