I'm in Leicestershire & although I have 500+ acres rough shooting, we never get many woodies round here. Want some good pigeon shooting for my lad & I for day here & there from easter on. willing to drive 100 miles & to pay cash. Any ideas/recommendations anyone?

 

Also just got silenced .22 rimfire, anybody done much pigeon shooting with one - they always tend to land out of range of 12 bores!

Hi dog,

 

Land is precious to the average shooting person! :P

How about joining a club where you can get pigeon shooting on selected fields for a fee? I think there are two clubs around your area: PRWS and NPPC (national pigeon pest control). PRWS have a website (guess you'll have to use a search engine to find it.)

NPPC dont have a website, but you can contact the organizer (John Shooter) on: 08707572246.

 

Are you being serious about shooting pigeons with a rimmy :P Never heard of it before. I guess if your allowed then it could be ok, althought it is a lot more sporting and exciting to bring the pigeons closer and shoot them with a shotgun, while they are still in flight.

I guess, seeing as you have your section 1 and you have 500 acres land then you know all the nessercary precautions; but if you are going to shoot them with your rifle. Just make sure you are not shooting them out of trees/ hedges etc etc and you are only shooting them in areas you know are safe!

Hi dog,

 

I would definitely recommend John Shooter and NPPC(08707572246).I am sure he has got loads of land in a radius of 50 miles from where you live.Membership is quite cheap and is worth it.I have been a memmber for years and have had many memorable days.

bigdev Sorry mate but I am just going to say what many of us will be thinking and that is..

 

If you have shot roosting pigeons at night with a .22 rimfire then you are some sort of Idiot...

 

Nothing personal..

If you don,t want too be a dangerous sod and fire at roosting pigeon lamp em so they fly into the wind then gradually bring em down in the beam till they land on the ground.I used to do a lot of it but used a dog not a gun.
