RE: Pigeon Toss
Well guys I didn't mean to make a moral debate over pigeons..I was just excited that I was able to shoot a moving target..it was a first for me and I was proud that my second time shooting a shotgun I did so well... I realize now this prolly wasn't the place to share..I understand the points made by all.. But for me it was nothing but silly fun..if it makes anyone feel better this will probably be a once in a lifetime deal because setting this up was very expensive and paid for by others Smile

Do you have a club nearby that has skeet and/or trap fields? Those sports are great fun.

Kelly, you know most of it wasn't aimed at you, right (nor was it even about pigeons, at least not for me)? Just so you don't get the wrong idea that we/I was jumping you. The conversation just took a life its own... like it often happens here Tongue

Kim, I agree with you whole-heartedly. What amazes me is our arrogance as a species, to think that everything is here specifically to please us and we can do whatever we want to whatever we want, just because we can. But to each - their own (once, again, Kelly, not aimed at you Smile )

What Does a City Pigeon Taste Like?

Pigeon tossing, meh. Now baby tossing ... there's something special. Blink




Breathing - it's more art than science.

Lightly saute clay pigeon in 5W or 5W10 motor oil (never use a synthetic) then garnish with No. 9 shot.

Should be consumed immediately, but may be frozen for later use.

Sorry, Girly, but no one with your signature should ever use the word 'toss'. No matter what the context is. Just sayin' Cool

RE: Pigeon Toss
As long as they don't shit all over everything - which they probably will - I don't mind a few pigeons around the city because they do keep certain insect populations under control.

A population of any species will overgrow it's welcome in any area, given the chance. I personally would have no problem with the humane removal or shooting of city pigeons, especially if the culling of them would be used to fortify the local food supply. If not, it just seems to me a waste of life and a waste of purpose for both the bird and the human.

Personally, I love birds. Some more than others.

No, this is not photoshopped.
This is the pink-necked green pigeon - Treron Vernans - They're found in Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical mangrove forests, and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.
I think I would eat it if I had to. But I don't think I would kill it just because it shit on people and things.

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

Landers premise is at least intriguing. If you're gonna eat meat, why not eat meat (or hell even vegetables - think kudzu) which is causing problems maintaining the biodiversity of a local environment instead of farmed meat? Got a shitload of rats in my area. Parts is parts.

RE: Pigeon Toss
What happens to the ones that are missed?
Is that still dealing with vermin... releasing them?
