I'll find out soon how pigeon tastes, as I cleaned 4 of them and froze the meat.  Dark red meat, like beef, very little fat.  Strange, they seem to have .22 caliber holes in 1/2 of the breast fillets.

A few years ago I shot a bunch of feral pigeons in a barn.  One had a band on it's leg and I didn't know what it was for.  After a couple of hours of internet research I found the owner and e-mailed that his pigeon was deceased.  It never returned from a races.  It's home was in N. Woshington but met it's maker in NE Orygun.  I felt slightly bad but snapped out of it quickly.
