We have caught 11 under a bridge near my office in the last week.
I went on a guided fishing trip yesterday and one of my buddy's was suppose to get the
birds in the trap, but on my way home today, I see he did not get them.
They fly really well.
Good Luck on your trapping
I had a private message from a visitor this morning. For some reason I could not open it. The title was "How do you trap pigeons". So here goes. I bought my pigeon trap from Lion Country Supply (dog training supplier). It has two one way doors (one on each end). Prop the doors open for a few days. Put food in the trap. Use either sunflower seed, wild bird seed or scratch grain. If you can, put some water in the trap. After a few days the pigeons will go in and out of the trap. After a few days, remove the props from the doors. The pigeons will go in to get food and will be trapped. Check traps often.
The one way doors are simply bars that hang down that can be pushed inward but not out.
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.
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.
