I set out a few pigeon decoys messing around today...brought em right in...wasn't hunting though...then a big ole red-tail hawk came in and power bombed my decoy and clawed it all up!...those decoys work great though...next trip out is with the shotgun!...In the 1st picture the decoy laying on its side is the one the hawk whacked.
NG...was that your write up in the Hawkeye I’m just wonder in case you invite me over for lunch and you tell me you’re serving grouse
Also, do you crow hunt where you are in the photos? I gave it a try years and years ago with a co-worker one day after working 3rd shift. We were 1/4 or 1/2 mile north of where your pigeon medic was needed ;D I never went back but thought about it a few times. I kind a thought you were in that area (maybe you told me or caught wind by your post) but decided to stay out.
I just picked up a nice farm in VT that had the pigeons flying around everywhere.
That was me haha...Ive whaled crows out of there...and a few coyotes..and pigeons..and turkeys..kinda tough hunting though with the ever growing human horde...gotta pick your spots and be real careful...you cant beat pigeons, no season, and plenty of em...seeing as you were gracious enough to offer to lend me your shotgun, if you ever wanna borrow my pigeon decoys let me know...and if those red tails keep messing them up I'm gunna have to wire 1 up to a battery and give them some pigeon avoidance training GRRRRRRRRRRR..they are some amazing birds though...ferocious looking !
