Unfortunately we are unable to shoot Mourning or White-winged doves with an air rifle. They are a migratory bird and fall under Federal regulations. It is possible but unlikely that laws will be changed for us air gunners. Check with your state as the Eurasion-collared dove is an invasive species and can be hunted with an air rifle in New Mexico. All states are different but the consensus is, they want these birds controlled or eliminated as they are displacing the native doves. I understand most land near DFW is tied up in leases but you could ask. Many of these places charge a daily or season rate. Most of the daily rates are reasonable.
Best of luck,
