    Just throwing it out there, but if anyone goes out for these last few days of the dove season, any chance you could save a couple of the wings for me when you are cleaning up the birds? I have a 5 month old lab that I would like to work on training, and would like some real wings. I work in the south bay, and live in Escondido, so I could pick them up anywhere in between. Just need 2 or 3.

    Let me know, thanks........ :)

    I have some full birds frozen in San Marcos if you need them. I use them for my pup as well.

    That would be great. I'm actually right on the edge of San Marcos, off Woodland Pkwy. Let me know when you can meet up.

    Though you should introduce dove at some point, they can be an issue.

    Dove release their feathers as a defense mechanism.
    If you have ever noticed when you pick up a freshly shot bird the feathers seem to come off easily.

    I have seen a number of dogs that simply will not pick up dove because their mouth gets filled with feathers.

    You may consider pigeons a better alternative for early introduction if you can find a source.
    (a lot of old school feed stores have them, but don't say what they are for!)

    Then move on to ducks, and eventually dove when pup is so focused on birds she doesn't care about the extra feathers.

    I am not saying this is absolute, just a consideration.

    Hope all is going well with your progress.
