Don't pay any attention to JBrooks. No one else does.

Welcome to TS.com.

Don't know if you'll find any live bird shooters, but I'm sure you find something or someone to keep you coming back.

Baba, you'll find that this site is only a Teenage wasteland, It's only teenage wasteland, Teenage wasteland, Oh, oh..Teenage wasteland!

They're all wasted!

Mike, don't let the juveniles run you off. Always glad to see anyone post for the first time for a breath of fresh air. I shot a few flyers or live birds as a kid in Central Kentucky. Would still shoot them if costs weren't so great. Go to the search function on the home screen. I've seen some posts in the past on flyers.

Yes, this is mostly a trapshooter oriented site but glad you are here.

Hey Baba, welcome to the fray! The above is just a sample of the fare here. As to your question,I've shot lots of live birds in my 58 years: quail, doves, ducks, geese, even an occasional crow, but don't think I ever shot one in competition, unless you count bets made with my teen-age cohorts many years ago as to whether or not a .22-250 Remington would hit a crow in the top of a dead tree at 200 meters. BTW--you're not a covert PETA operative on a stealth mission to gather intel on bird killers, are you? If so, any identifying information on this site regarding me is incorrect. Anyway, welcome to TS.com. I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as I do.

P.S.--GrubbyJack--seagull tastes like salty chicken!

You guys will note that Baba has left the building. Anyone who comes on here and asks about flyers in his first post is a PETA plant. Wise up. You too Larry.

I used to shoot a MX3 that was 60-40. and that was fine for me. I shot at Hegins, Ryans, Etc never was a Champion but I did win a few dollars. It is the King of all shotgun games. Find a shotgun the shoots where you look. I hope you enjoy it, I did.

Mike im all against the ideal of shooting live birds because it puts me in danger if you know what I mean.

Why not take up fishing instead.
