A few on a line.

Recommended Posts

On Saturday Ginger Cat and I were frustrated to see a line of pigeons going wide of our hide positions. These birds followed a dip in a sixty acre field to a small group of trees where they sat up and digested whatever it was they had eaten. Today I thought I might try to beat them at their own game.

Travelling only with gun, cartridges, net and two old Flexicoy decoys I walked to the trees and fashioned myself a hide. Even before I had finished erecting the net a group of 100 pigeons attempted to descend to the trees but I let them flare away without a shot. They did eventually come back in smaller groups giving me some excellent opportunities for an hour or so before I had to return home. Most crops were completely empty. Two had been on the maize cover crops. I shot and picked 14 which was good for an hour with little kit.

Nice bit of shooting in an hour, well done, you might have climbed the tree to put your decoys higher up. :whistling:

It is just a never ending battle trying to get to grips with our friend the pigeon , people ask all kind of questions and we reply with all sort of answers but the truth is we don't really know all the answers , some maybe , but only some and not all and that is the fascinating thing about pigeon shooting , don't matter how much you know , you will never know it all

Well done Mr JDog , an hour well spent :good:
