Mourning Doves

Submitted by MNS on 5/14/02. ( )

I am aware that you can purchase migratory birds such as some
species of ducks with the neccesary paperwork. Can you purchase
mourning doves? If so, where?

Yes, in theory

The problem is that not very many people have the permits to raise them, and those who do normally keep the more exotic types of native doves. You will have to do some searching to find a breeder. I don't know about finding one who would kill any of their doves for taxidermy, though. I think you would have to purchase them alive. Make SURE you keep the seamless bands on them if you get any.
