    20190228_161018-1224x1632.jpg Mason wanted to go to the barn after school this evening and do some pest control. He was successful. And believe it or not...he likes eatin the dang things. I must admit though..they do taste pretty dang good..and have some nice size breasts on em. He likes to kill one every so often just to eat.

    I have no worries about this kid ever being able to survive...and provide a meal for himself and others.

    They are just big ol over grown doves.... Sort of.. I would imagine country birds taste better the garbage eating city ones

    Way to go Mason! Wish I had some around my place to do a little target practice. I picked me up a 17 Mach 2 barrel for my contender and even the starlings have been staying away from the field behind my house.

    they eat pigeons in france. squib or something like that. one time in early 90's a friend told me about this, but he had to add a 1 liner.. E said pigeon lips were a delicacy in france. lols..
    as far as eating, i havent tried as yet, but see no reason not too. doz the breast meat taste like dove? i find dove to taste some towards liver, though not so strong.
    they also eat horse in france. i cant go there. i rode to many, and liked too many. aint no pigeons round here. if there were, i might give it a shot. nuff said

    reminds me of a poem. 24 blackbirds baked in a pie, a boy stuck in his thumb, pulled out a plumb, an said what a good boy am I. maybe its a limerick.
    them black birds that hang around here, during warm months are destructive. only if they made the 760 crossman .177 like they used to. i wouldnt get cought, knocking them off. 20 pumps, and it would send a BB through through a metal garbage can, an put a dent on the other side, plus it were accurate. metal garbage cans are thinner now, so it the quality of BB guns.

    You are correct. Was actually suprised on the accuracy for the lil thing. And he shoots it well which is what matters.
    We pick up hickory hulls and he shoots em for practice. 35-40 yards, open sights, and he will bust every one of em.
