The last couple of times i have been out have proved to be pretty good. With the hot weather we have had i have been sitting around the different cattle water tanks and i have been getting some results.
Now the trees are in full leaf it is pretty hard to get near and pigeons or magpies as they see you well before you can see them, so if you can find a water source on your permissions it is worth putting a single decoy near it and you will find you can pull the odd pigeon in.
I didn`t wait long for my next one to arrive, a pigeon flew straight in for a drink from the tank, again it sat nice and presented me with a similar shot to the first and he fell to the floor thanks to the pellet hitting its skull smack on.
I had been waiting a while until the next pigeon flew into the decoys, he was very interested in one of the decoys and started to get close, it had been walking about a bit but i could get a shot on him from behind, the grass was covering his head a little but i had a nice shot between his shoulder blades . The pellet hit its mark in a split second and the pigeon fell forward , its tail lifted for a couple of seconds then nothing the pigeon was stone dead.
