Hunting for Pigeons

There are 2 main types of pigeons that are shot in Argentina. The Picazuro Pigeon (grand pigeon), and the Spotted Wing (Rock Pigeon) and they appear in varying numbers in different areas. They can be excellent sport and decoy, very well being grain and leaf feeders like their European cousins. They are more concentrated in Argentina and can therefore be shot more predictably at certain times of year.
