    You didn't use whole kernel corn

    I caught 3 under an overpass this week. I like whole kernel corn too. I've been told that they prefer whole kernel corn because the cracked corn hurts their throats? I see how it can happen, but I also know that pigeons gravel up too.

    Does the trap have to be elevated or could I have success on the ground?

    Wayne, how's the hunt going? Have you caught a pigeon yet?

    No pigeons. After the trap being in my attic for a couple of years the prongs were sticking. The pigeons were going in but getting out. Then my son hurt his back while on the building roof. It went out on him while on the roof and he didn't have his cell phone with him (in truck). He had to wait about 15 min on the roof before he could stand and climb down the ladder.
    He has oiled up the trap and will put it back out when his back is better. We have caught lots of pigeons before so it has just been bad luck.
