And you ensure the pellet doesn't leave your boundary. Pray tell me in my total ignorance what the hell that means,

I shoot the feral pigeons for the council. that come out of the town, to the castle. ones they have strayed off or got lost they are classed as vermin, as far as i am aware.

Jok. I think you might be on the windup beer, but you're the only one talking about ferals in trees. No-one else is.

Jok it's simple I don't shoot ferrel pigeons and in my experience they do mix it was a debate with another shooter that led me to call fedoration I know it's only suposion but if you are caught with ringed birds as I have posted because someone owns them they can take legal action

j316 Flipping right pal. It must be said that if you cannot tell the difference between quarry, wood pigeon, and personal racing pigeons, then you should not be out there. Anyone killing birds that fly, trying to get home deserve a right bollocking,

We as a company trap and or shoot about 5-600 feral pigeons per year on one site
This has been going on for the last 6 years the site is in the Black Country and surrounded by pigeon lofts
We have had pigeons from all round Europe every time we have contacted the owner of a ringed bird
Ether from a printed phone number on its wing or the pigeon federation they never want it back I have only had a handful
Reclaimed. These birds are a real problem
I think anyone who keeps these flying rats should have to pay a fine for everyone trapped or shot
It's all well and good saying you can't shoot them because they belonged to some one
But so do the buildings they are shiteing all over
Sorry about the rant but there are few things I hate but
Cats and pigeons do get me Mardy

You can’t use this licence to kill birds because they are damaging your property, such as your car or house, or if they’re a nuisance.

Quoted from the General licence, cover yourself from prosecution! Act within the law then no one can complain.

May be not for damage but you can when the mess leaves a health risk
From slips and trips to
Infection control

I would like to start a campaign
A national pigeon day
Every Sunday morning every one who ownes a shot gun should be made as part of their grant requirements
To stand in a garden/park or town centre and shoot every pigeon they see
Then in the afternoon the air rifle lads take over to shoot the ones that hide
Then anyone who hasn't got a gun gets a whippy cane stick and trashes anyone they see throwing
Corn down in a public place
Should only take a couple of weeks to sort the job out
