The dove population takes quite the hit on opening day. Every day after that is just brought down a little bit more.

Thankfully doves repopulate pretty quick, and quick enough to allow for a second season.

The dove population isn't effected by hunting. In 2019, USFWS estimated that hunters took ~10M out of ~183M (or ~5%) mourning doves. This is way less than the doomed surplus. They just become more difficult to hunt.
