Game Crop

Recommended Posts

Some advice please from the Pigeon Massive. I have recently got a new permission which has mainly barley and beans, which have come through this week, and the pigeon have sought alternative food. The farmer was drilling some game crop strips yesterday and as this is my only permission with game crop, I'm wondering if the pigeon will come to it? I'm expecting the answer to be "watch it", but in the present situation that's difficult. Hopefully I may get on it after the game season, but is it worth keeping in mind for the future? Cheers, and stay safe. HIDENSEEK

Are there no Corvids feeding? We have corvids feeding over just showing barley? Odd pigeon comes over too in range, if you're on the flight line.

If they are putting games birds down they probably won’t want you shooting any where near the game crops .

Thanks for the replies guys.I was wondering if the pigeon would come to the newly drilled crop, probably didn't word the question properly.

I would say they are worth keeping an eye on. I have shot pigeons in the past on newly drilled game covers. I looked at some last week and they did not have a bird on them. When they germinate they may well get bothered by Rooks depending on what is sown.
