Todays shoot

I went for a walk round one of our farms today and was watching the woodies flocking down on a field of fresh cut grass. As i was about 100 yards i thought i needed to get a little closer before thinking about taking a shot. To my amazement the pigeons just went about there scavenging as i closed in on them. Over the tall grass at the edge of the field i could just make out 7 or 8 of them pecking at the seed on the ground and as i was 35 yards from the flock i singled one out and went for a head shot. "THWACK" .......and he hit the deck without disturbing the rest of the flock, but as i cracked the barrel open to reload, something spooked the flock and they took off.

D-V-S 1 / PIGEON 0.

The week before i had this nice rabbit and the feral pigeon
