Texas Parks and Wildlife Outdoor Annual 2017-2018 67
There is no closed season or bag limit restrictions for Eurasian collared-doves or common pigeons (rock doves); however, it is recom-
mended that plumage be left on these birds for identification purposes.
The only birds not protected by any state or federal law are European starlings, English sparrows,feral rock doves (common pigeon -Columba livia), and Eurasian collared-doves;
these species may be killed at any time, their nests or eggs destroyed, and their feathers may be possessed.
Thanks, Skeet. I'm aware of the Texas game regs, but the OP is in Arizona which was the reason for my question. (that and the fact that I'm not a dove hunter, so I don't know diddly about Eurasian Collared Doves.)
