i have found a few good deals on craigslist. Let me know if you find any deals and maybe we can go in together for a better price.

The guys who used to supply some of the old time Pigeon Shoots set traps under overpasses in large cities and caught..them..DD

I've got a trap ordered, I have tons of pigeons at the rail yard where I work, I've been throwing various things out to see if they will eat it but I haven't had much luck getting them to eat anything.

Corn or scratch grain doesn't work on city pigeons. You have to use hot dogs and french fries for bait.

I tried chicken scratch, because that's what I feed the ones I got. I also tried some grain off the tracks that they where actually eating that come out of a Hopper car and they wouldn't eat it either. I took some and put it in a safe spot off the rail, and they didn't mess with it. There is a lot of spilt grain on the railroad tracks around here so I don't know if I can compete, I threw out some Ritz crackers earlier also.
