Pigeon meat is good! 1 squab (whole pigeon) has 37g of protein which is the majority of most people's daily needs. On top of that wild pigeon has practically no carbon footprint, which is impressive considering that meat is often very high carbon.
I can purchase squabs at my local farmers market, but they are quite pricy. There are lots of pigeons on my land. If it where legally possible I would definitely hunt them, but I'm having trouble working that out. So far my searches have turned up similar information to this question, original source here.
Clearly someone is hunting pigeons, or they wouldn't turn up at farmers markets. Can I hunt the pigeons on my land (UK), and what methods can I use? (I'd rather not use a gun, but I'm not squeamish.)
