    I have some pigeons in the barn for most of the summer. With doing work around the farm and having outsiders working on the house I just could not shoot them when they were there. Well today the workers left early and I got he shotgun out with my duck loads. Hell this will do nicely, it was the only ammo I had at hand. I went in the barn and clapped my hands. They started to fly around and out they came. I got to the barn door as they left and shot. I knew I hit the first one and got a second one. After the others left I noticed a BIG BALL OF FEATHERS floating in the wind. It must have been about 4 foot across. I could not help myself from laughing so hard. My load is a heavy 1400 fps 4 shot. Yes I know over kill but it was fun. I will see if I can get some more on Tuesday. LOL.

    Bawana, nothing, and I mean _nothing_, is better for the soul, than seeing that cloud of feathers hanging in the air on a calm day...taking 5 minutes or so to finally reach the ground, like snow...man, makes me want to go pop some them bastards right now.


    Thanks for the pick-me-up...

    It's not the sport I enjoy it's the sake of killing. I have shot pigeons for farmers for 45 years and still do. What a bunch of fun.
    Shoot well

    Bawana, make it tougher, use the M1A.

    Never had the pigeon fun to any degree. Love to shoot pdogs, though. People don't understand the pests need to be eliminated.

    Tough. Shoot away.

    Flying Rats = a big mess in the barn from their droppings. Bad hay because of that. White marks on the barn frames. Their bird nests all over the place trashing up the barn and so on. Anyone who saids we should not shot them needs to go to a barn and clean up after them. Keep your area green. Shoot more pigeons.

    I went out Saturday, to a dairy farm in the valley, and shot pigeons. I got 116 of the rats before I got a headache from the sun and looking up so much, and picked everything up and went home.
    The dairy owner has even offered to buy my shells, but I'm glad to supply the ammo myself. I'd rather shoot pigeons more than anything except ducks.
    Any other pigeon shooters in the San Diego area? I'll trade some shoots with you. I have my own pigeon decoys.

    MIA, how close are you to PA? I'll probably have to close my eyes when the feathers fly as I'll be so upset!!

    My dad and I have had some darn good pigeon shoots and they have probably been some of the funnest times together we've ever had.

    Found out this year that they like to come in and check out a Mojo dove decoy too.

    UPDATE: I went back Tuesday afternoon and the pigeons were not at home. I went back today in the morning and heard them in the barn. I could not shoot them because of the workers at the house. So I went back in the afternoon and they were not in. DAMN they don't want to play for some reason. I will now have to wait till Sat morning to shoot some more. I will let you all know what happens. Shoot more pigeons.

    I remember about 15 years ago near Dublin Ohio 3 of us shot over a 1000 pigeons we ran out of shells and had to go home and reload and came back to shoot more we ended up with over a 1000 pigeons and that farmer was really glad because they were making the cows sick with their droppings all over the hay in the loft. Never ever ran across that many pigeons inone place again.

    I have several farms that I still shoot pigeons at, it is great fun.
