I already got my turkey this year. He was a little jake, but he made me hunt him pretty hard. Last year, the toms gobbled their heads off, and strutted right to us almost every time. This year, I think we went up to our turkey grounds a little too early, because they just didn't care...
Anyway, the point is to see what everyone is doing with their shotguns until September. I see some post on here about crow hunting, and so on. Has anyone tried pigeon hunting? I love it... since they're considered a pest, they can be hunted year-round, and without limit, but the best part is, they decoy just like waterfowl. In the rest of the world pigeon hunting is a bona fide wingshooting sport--similar to our dove hunting, I guess. It's great practice for the season, great for training dogs, and just a good time all in itself. I used to treat it simply as something to do in the off-season, but in recent years I've caught myself itching for a pigeon hunt over a goose hunt, haha. I guess because it's more fun to me be be able to set up a spread in 5 minutes, and shoot 30 pigeons in an hour that it is to set up a spread in an hour, wait an hour, shoot 4 geese, and take down the spread in an hour.
Does anyone else hunt pigeons?
