I don't own a gun, but if I did, I'm sure that I'd want to be at the forefront of scouting these tiny, lovely birds with beautiful, soothing calls. They eat weed seeds and symbolize peace. Why NOT go out and blast their delicate brown bodies into Kingdom come? One has to feed one's family, after all! What a great, sporting combination: Freedom and a License to Kill Doves.

The DNR was NOT created to preserve wildlife. Their main goal is to use Minnesota's natural resource to drive revenue for the state. And when hunters go dove hunting they buy stuff like gas and shotgun shells which are taxed and also hunting licenses which go directly into the DNR's coffers. If there was no DNR we'd have no wildlife because man cannot control their urge to take it before someone else gets it.
