Pi­geon shoot­ing made easy

Sporting Shooter - - Readers’ Letters -

As a new­comer to shoot­ing I have been fas­ci­nated by your ar­ti­cles on pi­geon and corvid shoot­ing, es­pe­cially the stuff on sitty trees, flap­pers, 2D de­coys, strung-up dead birds, flight lines and hides... all of which con­jure up vi­sions of days spent in a field, cul­mi­nat­ing in a large bag of birds.

I have been ob­serv­ing said birds while driv­ing round the coun­try lanes, look­ing to see their habits, what at­tracts them etc, and think I have cracked it!

I will park my car in the mid­dle of the field and shoot them as they fly into the wind­screen, or pause over­head to defe­cate on my paint­work.
