    Finished the coop today, should call it a pigeon condo, cost me a fortune.
    Caught 3 more birds today and cut 10 2x4's into 2x2's to make more traps.
    would post pics but I'm a techno idiot.

    How are yall making your own traps? Did you order the trap doors, then just build your own box to mount them on?

    Pigeons are going like crazy in the Front range of Colorado, I can't keep up with the demand. Caught 303 and sold 220 the next day. Fastest way is to find where they are roosting and go in at night with a strobe light and fish net.

    We switched to horse feed and got one yesterday. Kept him in there today and got 3 more. We won't catch up to 2labs at this rate but we're getting there. The "Judas" bird goes out again tomorrow to convince a few more..

    I would like to join this post, I am purchasing for $3.50 each but after reading this thread I am looking under every bridge when I drive to work for pigeons. I found some near where I train and they hang out on the power line but not sure how to trap or net them. Does anyone have a pic or sketch on homemade trap. I am not sure where they are roosting, there is a small bridge nearby.

    We are making our doors out of 1/2 x1/2 wire screen cloth, with coat hanger wire around the edges.
    Look at nixalite.com, I have one of their traps works great, copied their door design.
    I am using 2x4's ripped in half for the frame and 1" chicken wire to cover.
    about $9.00 in matls. per trap.
    I am really busy at work this week, will try to build 3 traps on Sunday, gotta train Saturday.

    Good Luck Trappers

    Where do yall set your traps? Just under and overpass on the highway where pigeons hang out?

    Gregg,
    I am up in Chattanooga, which is a Desert for pigeons. If your supplier has ample quantities I would take a drive for those $3.50 pigeons. Driving would be easier....So far I have over $350 invested and yet to catch 1. ( $50 for trap, $300 for new tire after driving around abandon warehouses). thanks for the help.
    Gregg
