     A short video of me taking out a few pigeons with my Wildcat .25 caliber. The real purpose of this video is that I just got a copy of the video editing software Power Director 17. I watched a few tutorials on various aspects of editing to put this video together. Since I did not have a second camera doing video I just put the action on a snapshot of the silo I was shooting the pigeons off. Bill

    Nice Bill!

    The software is great once you get used to it.  Yes, running a 3rd person cam makes a video nice but it's quite the pain to self film it.

    Nice shooting and video.   Someone’s been shootin low.   Did you notice all the bullet holes in the metal? 

    I was hunting today.  Concrete silo. Pigeons very reluctant to land on the silo looked over at the barn roof four of’m sitting shoulder to shoulder daring me to take a shot.   And they were sitting on the back side of the out of range.   

    They learn .

    Yep lots of holes in that silo shot long before I ever started shooting there. It had been  a while since I shot pigeons there and like you said they learn quick to stay away. That is why I am always looking to more farms to do rotational shooting visits. Bill

    Nice Bill,

    Man I need to get a video set up soon!

    Went to one of my new permissions today and wacked 24 pigeons and a few starlings with my Cricket .25 and had a blast but a scope cam would make it all the better…

    11 of them still in the rafters and roof tops and couldn't recover them. Critter food!

    With that shooting haul you indeed need some video to add to our hunting entertainment here. The only time I was able to shoot a lot of pigeons was the first time or two at a new location then they wised up quickly. Bill

    Well, that kind of pigetude* sucks, doesn't it?!  😡

    *[pigeon attitude]

     

    Yes, the pigeons learn — and so do we!  First we punched them off their perches using pellets. Now we have slugs available that reach so far they might not even see you.

    "Out of range" — well, that point was just streched a whole lot further out than our airgun forefathers and the pigeon ancestors ever imagined. 😄 👍🏼

     

    For daring you to shoot them — they deserve a slug where their pesky heart/lung sits!

    Just to let you know those holes are from many years ago from frustrated farmers trying to shoot the pigeons. Bill
