Pigeon Shooting With Air Rifles
Posted 04 April 2014 - 08:47 am
Has anyone had success with this kind hunting,
Static in a hide over crops as I've acquired a new permission and I haven't a shotgun licence
All of my hunting is on rabbits on grassland day or NV.
This is a great little permission and I would like to keep it.
All advice appreciated

1. Get a shotgun;
2. Invite someone with a shotgun out;
3. Test it and see if it works.
I know I would personally pick 1, but i dont need to now... Because well... I have a shotgun.

Yes I could get a shotgun I have no convictions and a gun safe. Trouble is there are public footpaths around, dog walkers, a major road adjacent to it. There is I've been told by the owner that there is a guy who is allowed to shot there with a shotgun but he hasn't been around lately. Saying that, if I feel that the land would warrant buying one I will.
I have shoot pigeons before from 55 yards with my Airwolf and the others carry on feeding around it.
This method I thought might produce a good bag, worth a try

Location of hide, camo and decoy set up will need to be spot on.
Though a shotgun is a lot more effective and will get you much bigger bags.
Make sure you know the laws concerning shooting near roads and footpaths.
Most of all, enjoy the shooting.

As long as you have a reasonably clean history the shotgun application process is very simple.

Check out this chaps videos on youtube, he knows what he is doing and has got a whole series of these clips:
Just acquired my own pcp multi-shot Air Arms S410 so will be trying this myself this year.

Today I've bought hide poles, netting, six decoy pigeons, and two magpies, I've seen the woodies on my permission follow the magpies in and leave when they leave.
So need to set them up and see what that brings
