I'm not having any luck this fall. I have a wire trap with two doors that are propped open and the damn birds won't even eat the corn and bread that is around the trap, let alone go in the trap to get the majority of the whole kernel corn. Any suggestions fellas?
I set my $40.00 trap on top of a filling station roof, propped the doors, drove past pigeons going in and out, next day took the props off, went to work, and came back by and some jack wagon stole my trap.......
I made a pigeon trap years ago. I'd set it up where pigeons congregated and would sit in my truck at a distance waiting for it to fill up. No luck. I talked to someone who said to put a live pigeon in it and leave it out longer. Next weekend I did and left it out all day. Returned to find someone had released the pigeon and smashed the trap...
Molly, move the trap to another location and use only corn, get rid of the bread.

There is lots of seed on the ground in the fall and the birds are not crazed for food.
They will eat around the trap for easy pickings in the fall. When it gets cold the game will
change in your favor as they need more food to survive like ducks.
I always leave the doors down and put alot of corn around the area to get them started.
It usually takes a week ot two to get them around the trap and to start catching them.
Be patient and check your bait every other day to make sure the rats and squirrels are not chowing on your corn.
they are doing the same to my trap, they will eat the corn I put out but will not enter. I left the wires up for a couple days and they went in but when down nothing
I wish I had a deer cam on them to see what they are doing
