Hunters can help wildlife biologists studying South Carolina mourning dove populations by returning information from banded birds harvested during the upcoming dove season. Hunters recovering a banded dove should call the toll-free reporting number etched on each band (1-800-327-BAND) to report the date and location of the recovery. Hunters are allowed to keep recovered bands, and will be provided a certificate of appreciation from the USGS Bird Banding Laboratory indicating the banding location of the recovered bird.
