The Committee to Restore the Dove Shooting Ban
Protecting Michigan's Traditional Values

Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard on this amazing campaign! Check back for election victory stories and thank you to all our supporters.

On November 7, 2006, Michigan voters overwhelmingly rejected the shooting of mourning doves. More Michigan citizens voted No on Proposal 3 than voted for any candidate for statewide elective office, or voted for or against any other contested ballot proposal.  A No vote on Proposal 3 prevailed in all 83 Michigan counties!
