These doves are an introduced species that have recently expanded their range into Idaho. Should you harvest Eurasian-collared doves while Mourning dove hunting, it is recommended they are left unplucked during transport so they can be distinguished from Mourning doves. Eurasian-collared doves will not count as part of your aggregate bag of Mourning doves as long as they are identifiable.
