Re-thinking Finance

So i woke up and serveyed my garden, as i normaly do whilst waiting for the kettle to boil. And i look at the wildlife and think... man that's one FAT pigeon!

Something that has been on my mind for a while, if your doing relay and going to a nice green leafy uni town then there is a way to get cheap food.

1) Invest in an air-rifle, a nice CO2 powerd .22 would do

2) Shoot pigeons

3) make pigeon pie and spend the rest of relay shooting, cooking, and eating what God has provided in your garden.

The pigeons in my garden are the correct sort (i.e wood pigeons) as my house just boarders the south downs, please dont do this to town pigeons, thier like dirty and diseased.

Also if you get bored of pigeons, well there's squirels, foxes and owls. Wonderous varity to eat.

Aren't pigeons just flying rats?

Lisa Simpson describes them as 'swimming with disease'...

And I'm sure it will make you feel manly at the same time (grrr)...!!
(by the way I agree with Ed - pigeons are rats with wings)

Yes as i said there is a differnce between wood pigeons which you can shoot and are the ones in my house and the scummy ones that just fly around london.
Please check with your localo authority first before shooting and cooking pigeons
also if you see a dead pigeon dont pick it up and cook it it died for a reason.

Yes i guess shooting stuff would make you feel manly, normaly i shoot clays so haven shot a pigeon yet...
... but with relay fiance it becomes soo tempting
