I can't speak for the whole board here at the USCA, but pidgeons are not used as bait around here. Im not saying they don't work, but pidgeons are mostly found in the cities here, and hunting them is a no no in the city. I will be following this thread for your results though.I'm going to shoot some pidgeons for bait. How do you guys recommend preping the birds for bait? Feathers on or off? Halved, quarterd or whole? Etc?
