Why shoot pigeons?
The woodpigeon is recognised as the UKโ€™s number one agricultural pest and causes millions of pounds of damage (AHDB consultation 10-40% loss in yield. Equivalent loss of ยฃ125/ha for Oil Seed Rape, ยฃ250/ha for peas, ยฃ350-ยฃ1250/ha for brassicas) to agricultural crops every year including cereals, brassicas, oilseed rape, peas and salad crops. Pigeon damage reduces the yield, quality, appearance and ultimately the saleability of the crop. Pigeons can also cause damage in gardens and allotments – pecking at the leaves and ripping off portions, often leaving just the stalks and larger leaf veins. They may also attack and strip buds, leaves and fruits off trees and bushes.
The UK woodpigeon population was last estimated at 5.4 million pairs in 2009. Densities of wood pigeon are the highest in Eastern England, coinciding with the highest concentration of horticultural production.
Wild pigeon (game) is natural and free range, and it is one of the healthiest meats available today. Itโ€™s low in cholesterol and high in proteinโ€ฆ and, quite simply, delicious. โ€˜mโ€™

    Which red dot was used in this video? I’m not signing up to kit finder with an email. There’s enough data harvesting going on already. Anyway, it seems to be more of an eBay for shooters, rather than a list of kit used in the film.
