100% sure they are not Eurasian's. We have quite a few of those around and have killed some. These are without a doubt pigeon. I couldn't find anything in the online regs about it but I know that doesn't mean they are legal.
I had a white pigeon that was circling us opening morning. He circled us about 5 or 6 times and finally came close enough and I dropped him. Went over to pick it up and it had a band on it with a guys name and phone #. :smack: I looked up the name on the band in the phone book and the guy's house is about a 1/4 from where we were hunting.
I marked it up to being about the same as letting your pet deer run around on Oct 1st...oh well...
Domestic pigeons in cities have been know to carry hepotitis, and so do segulls. I knew a couple of people in the Navy to catch it from eating them. I don't eat them. Used to eat crows when I was younger, but they carry diseases also.
they feed the pigeons at newark coal burner power plant near newark poison corn and they do not die right away.i have witnessed pigeons flying through the air then nose dive while working outages .i would be careful eating pigeons near any large plant where they poison them!you will see other pigeons eating the corn out of the dead carcass's, pretty nasty!
