Recommended Posts

Can’t wait for the long summer nights, pigeons just keep comming back to roost, I’ve had the best shooting in the evenings,  no net no decoys just under the trees where they are comming in, ive used the magnet and decoys which does work but feel I’m waiting long periods of time in between flights, what’s your view on evening shooting

In the Summer it is very difficult to do roost shooting . mainly the trees are in full leaf and the pigeons would be a job to see , the pigeons would be far to staggered in coming back to roost and if any game shooting goes on in the Winter in your wooded area, the keeper would like to keep the woods quite .

Why not shoot them on the crops during the day ??

I do, but the best night shooting was in the evening, I just stood there and every 10mins or so they just kept comming back, they must have had chicks to tend to, I shot 40 that night on the same spot just on the tree line
