I shoot them at a couple local stone quarry's. They blow up with a show! I like to burn up factory ammo on them.

One farm I hunt for groundhogs has a few and I like taking long range shots at them with my .260. Have yet to get one on video but I will.

.260!!! That would look like a feather bomb.

Surprisingly not as much as you might think because I am using 140 grain AMAX.

I shoot them off the power line with a really good air rifle here in the Big Smoke

We used to have great pigeon shoots on a small hog farm located close to a downtown area. The pigeons would fly from the downtown area to the farm for corn and scraps fed to the hogs. After about ten years of hunting there, the farm was shut down and is now replaced by office buildings :( There's still plenty of pigeons, but the local law enforcement frown on shooting shotguns in the new parking lots!
