Is there already any sort of organization like Pigeons Unlimited? The idea would be for a national or state run campaign to get farmers , ranchers or any land owners near cities to lease their land to hunters on the off season for the purpose of pigeon hunting. This is a big sport in England but not in the US... which makes no sense as there is not much to hunt most months of the year that have decent weather. Plus, they country bred ones taste like dove.

Pigeons Limited sounds like a better idea.

I just wish I could find a farmer with a pigeon problem. Anything I can hunt with an air rifle is just the more fun.

There is no closed season or bag limits on Eurasian collard doves.

I know but... I see lots of pigeons and only a few eurasians.

Check out George digweeds YouTube vids on pigeons. The guy is amazing

I'm worried I might get in trouble in an overpass. Maybe a bridge across a river with permission from a game warden.

I used to hunt lampasas river bed with an air rifle and my email correspondance from GW printed and folded in my pocket. I miss that river.

How does one get a lease for pigeon Hunting? There isn't an organization for it and the land owners I've talked to think it's a bit off... Never heard of it kind of thing

I got started looking for a place to shoot crows in N.C. I called some pick your own fruit places, literally first guy I called said please come shoot these damn crows. He had a book full of depredation permits too, he was legit and ready to get rid of crows and said please shoot these pigeons too. Had trees full of them.

BOBO i would sure like to find a dairy like that but I don't know of one nearby to rockwall. Might get lucky and stop by one and ask on the road though.

A lot of people think it is off. A lot of hunters have only ever hunted for deer, turkeys, etc and think of it as a joke. "Piddlin around", I have heard more than once from old timers including my grandma.

But a lot of people take it very seriously, especially with an air rifle. And let me tell you, if you can put the stalk on crows with an air rifle you're a good hunter. It's a challenge hunting crows in places they are not wanted. Nothing like shooting them on powerlines when you were a kid.

Crows are like the people alarm in the woods to the rest of the animals.

I guess they are not wanted anywhere. So more like, in places people are actively trying to get rid of them. I swear a crow knows what a rifle looks like. They will milander around until you come back out with a rifle. Very sharp birds.

I would be in on the pigeon thing. We always have a ton of them around our city service center and I sit and daydream about all of the wing shooting practice I'm missing.

When i was a boy there were hordes of them on the powerlines, especially after a good rain. Crows and grackles, we killed probably thousands right off the powerlines. We also had fields of sunflowers back there too, but whatever. Crows love powerlines.
