An Extract from a study done on Red-Eyed turtle dove and Laughing dove as an agricultural pest by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln:

"In South Africa, the laughing dove (Streptopelia senegaleusis) and the turtle dove (Streptopelia capicola) have been identified as major pests on sorghum which is the main cereal food item for the population, and loss to the doves has assumed a lot of importance.

Questionnaires were sent out to farmers. Preliminary results compiled from answers to the questionnaires indicated that a large variety of crops including rice (Oryza sativa); maize (Zea mays); cowpea (Vigna unguiculata); groundnut (Arachis hypogea); sorghum (Sorghum
guineense) and soyabean (Glycine max) were attacked at various stages of growth, planting, seedling, and harvesting by the red-eyed turtle dove (Table 1).
The planted grains were dug up immediately after planting and swallowed whole. During the seedling stage of growth, the cotyledons were pecked and the germinating seed dug up and consumed. The extent of damage depends on the population of doves in the crop land. Damage was severe in many instances; sometimes it was total.

The most common form of control is human scaring which is fast becoming obsolete because scarers are no longer available and they are very expensive to maintain.
Maize and rice grains soaked in concentrated insecticides have been used to kill birds but this habit is dangerous and is being discouraged."

By shooting these birds, I am not only providing myself with a tasty snack, I am also contributing towards solving the problem that these birds impose. Rather than letting pesticides kill them slowly and painfully, putting a pellet through a bird can kill it instantly and painlessly

The gun seems to be extremely accurate, I was just wondering why you don't go for the head shots.
Mark Jones

Nice. You guys should check out Edgun. This guy takes nothing but headshots.

Nice gun, you need to work on your technique; afraid to say it looks as if a few of your shots are rather random; hitting the shoulder, as well as the shot on the final bird, are in my opinion unacceptable. They should have been comfortable head shots. Poorly placed shots doesn't do anything for the press of shooting, sorry to be blunt. 
WUT? He immediately took a follow up shot...
