Yes you can. The daily bag limit is unlimited because they are an unprotected species. There are not magazine capacity restrictions or shot size restrictions either.

kill em all. Great way to get some youth out and let some shots fly.

Drop a teal or dove spinner in a field there using and game on.

Pigeons are fun as heck to shoot. We got into some three years ago on a dove hunt and the first time we had 50 or so decoy, we killed 7 or 8, they would fly away and then 30 minutes later they would come right back. They did this several times before we killed most of them.
