............,so like i said what happens if that bird flys say 120/130 yards across a field and then drops into the road


We all run that risk? I once received a piccie on my mobile from the farmer when a shot pigeon dropped in to his yard well away from where I was sitting.
But that is not the point of the discussion which was problems of sitting in a hedge with a road immediately behind that hedge not 100's of yds away.

If a pigeon flies on for a few hundred yards, it is most certainly not dead in the air.


Quite, perforated air sacs

so you`ve never hit pigeon/crow and watch that bird fly on for a distance before dropping,  the word FLIES on doesn`t mean it`s flapping it`s wings it`s taken a lung shot or head shot where the birds dead or die in and just floats on the wing before coming to ground,  last summer i shot a pigeon knew i hit him hard and watched him float across a 130 plus yards long field with out flapping his wings one before falling straight into a garden behind me, my point being not all birds drop where shoot

If a pigeon is gliding, it isn't dead.

you can shoot a min of 15 yards from a road, in theory you can actually shoot on someones boundary, away from their property, but it wouldn't be worth the hassle. I had a situation a few years ago, when someone approached me and made out they were off duty police telling me that I had to be a minimum of 50 yards from the road, I argued it for a bit, but gave up, as although I was in the right regarding legality, I could see they were agitated so decided to give it a wide berth.

 

sometimes its best just to get miles away from any possible conflict if you can. :good:

You can legally shoot next to a road.

We could argue this thread out till the cows come home , its really down to common sense and avoiding any conflict with anyone who it might annoy or endanger , or are you prepared to risk your S G C because according to the law you are in the right .

If they are not in, I would sit outside the boundary if best spot,

 

if in the house, 50 yards if they are warned, 100 yards if not.

Just be good neighbours keep a good lookout around you and don't scare people sunday walking along the other side of the fence, cars more likely to crash watching a person with a gun rather than having a bird fall on them
