Pigeon Shooting – Transporting Home


Article written by 11 February 2013

A particularly useful video courtesy of BASC. With pigeon shooting on the increase, and more game shooters spending time doing so outside of the season this video is really quite timley. Video first appeared on the BASC You Tube Channel .

When taking your pigeon home in the car, a few simple precautions will make the eating safe and all the more tasty. Thanks to Ian Lawrie at Plucking Magic in Fife for supplying the pigeons in this film.
