Same here, with the GL debacle I have only been out half a dozen times and shot maybe 150 or so of which I think 2 were young birds and my shooting partner has had just the same experience.

Must be different in other areas , if you read JDogs post last week and a piece I put on about a little go I had , we both mentioned young pigeons , in Jdog thread he was saying he shot 40 odd and nearly two thirds were young,  and I left some very young ones and I finished with around half young and half old .

Last Saturday afternoon we had another go and the young to old were about the same .

Strange or maybe a strange occurance that we have just not had the chance but they are about, who knows.

There is a few young pigeons in my patch, however I don’t shot them if I can’t see white neck bars( just my personal choice)  , but impossible to tell when they are over your head.

Went out last Saturday shot 18, 50% of them were youngsters.

Similar story around here, I had 61 off some wheat stubble on Thursday and at least 1/3 of them were this years birds, some were full grown with white neck bars but the majority of the youngsters were small , but still pigeons and still eating farmers crops so sad but necessary.

I did avoid shooting several that got in under the radar close enough for me to identify them as young and small so a few left to grow on for another day, but they may not be so lucky next time they venture in over my decoys.
