Anyone know where I can find some pigeons for training around Missoula? Thanks

Here is what I do. Go find a building they roost in. Get permission. Then go late at night with a hand held spotlight and a large long handled landing net. Shine the light on the birds and approach so your shadow doesnt fall on the birds. Scoop um up. This also works good under bridges but more safty precautions need to be taken. Or you can buy them for $5 apiece if you can find any.

I always check the free ads in the Missoulian but there has been NONE advertised this season.

Very strange.
