if your using an air rifle you want the wind in your face because pigeons land into the wind so when they touch down they will be facing away from gives you an extra second to get a shot off good luck

having you describe the area your shooting, Id say go shoot squirrels, for two reasons


1st squirrels are classed as pests 100% of the time, you can shoot them whenever, so setting up a hide and feeding station within the trees will give you success and your perfectly legal


2nd, give up the pigeon shooting, as from what you describe, your in fact totally illegal at the moment, pigeons are not classed as pests all of the time, the general license allows us to shoot them in certain circumstances, reading your description, I cant see any of the conditions being met, saying "I didn't know" to a judge will not get you off the hook, read the general license, that's what its there for to keep us legal



my bad, just seen the age of this post!!!!! what is it with people bringing old posts up again  :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:
