im very inexperienced when it comes to traping birds but id love to start.there are huge flocks of pidgions in the fields around me and i recon why not start there.if anyone would have some simply plans and/or pics of a good pidgion trap it would be a great help.
thanks,
Conor. ;)

They are called bob wires, principally they hang loose and can freely move backwards or forwards. Movement is however restricted one way, (inwards), by the use of a stop bar across the bottom of the bob wires, allowing the bird in but obviously not back out.

These bob wires are available from john b.
