Way cool!, Search "Soar No More" and watch some of their videos of them decoying pigeons on Youtube, I recently purchased some of their decoys and it is a kick in the pants!

I noticed your location....
Is "pigeon" code talk for something else?

no slack its no code,we shoot a lot of pigeons,we believe they come from indus fly way/international fly way 7. some sources say that they migrate from vallies of Hiamalayas.
we call them spotted pigeons and they visit our areas in thousands.u will forget argentinian wingshooting if u are at right time and at right spot :biggrin: . about the size of common doves,these are real tough challenging birds that can fly around 80+kmph and can be a real challange when u r pass shooting them at 30+ yards.

i am not talking about rock pigeons they are pretty fool and lazy birds when compared to spotted pigeons.

Seems like fun for the off season, not to mention great for keeping the dog in shape. I'll have to give that a try does anybody make their own decoys?

They are good to eat too. At one point in America they were preferred over chickens, seriously try em.

Pigeon hunting is by far the best way to make the off season for ducks and geese fly by. I have been hunting pigeons for about 10 years now and it is an awesome way to keep that shotgun trigger firing, its not uncommon to go out and shoot over 100 shells on a good feedlot or dairy. Soar No More has got pigeon hunting down to a science as far as pigeon hunting products and info on where and how to hunt them. NIce thing about pigeons in most states.... NO SEASON, NO RULES, and NO LIMITS!!! Pick up some Soar No More decoys and see how pigeons finish in the hole just like ducks and geese, feet down and back pedeling right in your face!!!
Check out there awesome video

Pigeons are fun to hunt! Soar No More is a great group of guys to watch hunt. Some buddies of mine are starting a guide business. We've been shooting Pigeons all summer. It is correct that you can shoot over a hundred shells in a day. We've had hundred bird days. We are in Colorado.

By the way a lot are banded. Racing Pigeons, and breeders band them!

What I meant to say is a lot are banded. Pigeon breeders band them. If they are homing Pigeons, or racing pigeons they get banded.

Not sure if Band Tailed Pigeons are banded. I have my HIP number for them though. Know a good place to find them in Colorado?

My bad. You're not in Colorado.

This is from one Pigeon, and Dove hunt we had a couple weeks ago. I also added a picture of one band I shot. There are lots of variations of bands. Some have the names of the owners, and different number variations.

Shot a double banded Pigeon last night. Looks like it was a racing Pigeon. White tipped wings. Only saw three Pigeons on the farm last night, but I guess we shot the right one!

Shot wild pigeons in Argentina, and it was awesome. Way more fun than doves.

I'm hoping to try it again in Ireland or Scotland next year on a work trip.
