Watch Scott Breeze, AKA the "Dovenator" on his latest record breaking dove shoot in Argentina.
Be sure to watch this video as well as the interview with Scott Breeze in the second video below. Scott explains the predicament in Argentina with the overpopulation of doves. They are a considerable problem for the farmers and agriculture in general in Argentina. The large numbers are due in large part to the doves' reliance on farm crops. The shooting of doves is encouraged and they are considered a pest, numbering in the millions and millions. It is estimated that in the Cordoba region alone, there are 30,000,000 doves -- eating significantly more than 20% of the local crop production. There are two key differences between doves in the U.S. (mourning doves) and the golden eared dove: Golden eared doves reproduce between five and six times per year while laying three to five eggs each time they nest. Due to climate, they also are non-migratory, and spend their lives often within just a few miles of where they hatched. All this contributes to the huge dove population problem.
All the doves shot by Scott, and by the many other hunters who go to Argentina, are utilized as best as possible. Some are eaten by the hunters, the rest are distributed to the local farmers and others who also eat them or utilize them for livestock feed (and then eat the livestock later). As explained by Scott in the second video, currently there is no danger of overhunting the Argentina doves. Although they present a problem for many farmers, they are watched and studied closely since they are also an importent resource for the outfitters and lodges specializing in dove hunting.
In this interview — done at the Winchester Repeating Arms SHOT Show booth — Scott Breeze talks about his experience setting a record for doves shot in one day. This was in Argentina of course, where the doves are officially considered a pest and their numbers are mind boggling.
Scott set the record using two Winchester Super X3 20 Gauge shotguns. While he was shooting one, the other was being loaded. If this sounds amazing to you, watch the interview right here.
