Can I shoot these backyard pigeons? How to dispose of them?

I was wondering if I could take them out with my daisy? And if so, how should I dispose of the body痴? Thank you.

well several questions would have to be answered, like is is legal to discharge a AIR gun in your zoning /area!
next would be what are the legal hunting rules on shooting pigeons, it varies from state to state, so you need to check with your states game dept, they would also then be able to tell you how to dispose of them too, but typically you cannot just kill anything for no real reason, and can get some serious fines for doing so if NOT legal, as well as again discharging a air rifle in a area where its illegal to do so!

Look behind your target, you are responsible for anything that comes out of the barrel. I doubt you are going to bring down a Pigeon with a Daisy. Breast shot maybe, head shot maybe.

And something else to remember, somebody always sees what you are doing, as a rule. Right or wrong, if the neighborhood busybody sees you, the man is going to be knocking on your door. Most places it is illegal to use a BB or a pellet gun even if they are classified as a nuisance.

Make sure you know the difference between a wild pigeon and a city pigeon. Wild Pigeons have seasons and some are year round protected.

I have one two word answer "Funnel trap". The thing about a funnel trap is when you get one bird in there it draws the other birds in. I make mine simply, a ground level funnel so they can walk in, emptying into a larger enclosure. It doesn't have to look pretty it just has to work. Chicken wire and cable ties. Cracked Corn and/or/or both old hard bread as bait.

What do the laws in your area say about discharge of firearms or air rifles? In some areas it is no issue but in others it is. Also those things are tasty! Pull the breasts out and put them on the grill. I shoot pigeons at a couple of different places as wing shooting practice and they all end up on the grill.

Grilled Pigeon is really good, I make a glaze with Liquore Galliano and melted Butter.
