Comparison of white-winged dove (Zenaida asiatica) and mourning dove (Z. macroura) call-count indices and September hunting success in Arizona indicated that regression coefficients for these relationships were significantly different from zero (P ≤ 0.05). Further correlation analysis showed that call counts were probably a valid survey technique to measure population levels of white-winged and mourning doves and that the mourning dove call-count index could be used with reasonable accuracy to forecast early fall hunting success in Arizona.
