This is a very easy trap to make to catch dove quil and similar type birds.

I like that trap! It is simple and fast to make on the spot.

There's no palmetto where I live, but I can use a number of things as a substitute.

I went looking in search for which wild plants can be used as bait in the event that corn and other cultivated grains are not handy....

I learned that doves will go for "wild grasses, weeds, herbs, and occasionally berries." (I assume they mean the seeds.)

Here in the US, if caught, that would cost me a fine and possibly lose my hunting privilege for a few years. We can’t even legally live trap furbearers.

Sure, if SHTF, that’s a different story.

That's a collared dove you can trap them all you want hunt with no bag limit and if you catch a morning dove you just let it go.

That's correct.

It's also pretty easy to make a "drop trap" which will let them in but they can't get back out.

4-5 pieces of board is all that is needed, but it could be done with many other materials too as long as the main features are the same.

Pigeons can't land if they don't have room to spread their wings, and they can't fly into a hole, but they can drop through one.

The arrangement of the boards lets them land outside the trap, walk through a short "tunnel" and drop into the baited area, but they can't fly back up to the opening due to the extensions of the sides and top over the walkway.

It only needs to be large enough to let the birds walk through without turning around.

Not ironic at all. I appreciate good info...even from you, lol. I don't hold grudges that far.

And, I will continue to "like" and appreciate future good info from you because over the years I have come to respect many of your contributions (regardless of what I don't like about you).

Your buddy is the one with the problems.

If you look at what I said here, and what he said there, you will see he lied.

But that's fine. I don't expect anything different.

I found a video of a super easy bird trap a while back.
But I guess YouTube removed it. They need to censor everything now. Because they are not evil. Wait, they stopped saying they are not evil now.

Here is another similar video they haven't taken down yet.
