Rock Pigeon Shooting South Africa
South Africa is gifted with having an extremely diverse and varied habitat. Rock Pigeon is the new up and coming Dove shooting!
"Like Grouse on Steroids!"
Normally shot in the mornings and afternoon coming in to feed around harvested corn and sunflower fields. Rock Pigeons and Doves offer serious hot barrel shooting, with birds coming at a fast pace with singles, pairs and flocks coming to the field with regularity. High, low and every angle with a zigzagging flight just to confuse things, seldom is there a moment when a dove or pigeon is not in sight over your barrels.
Rock Pigeons are rated by world shooters as the most sporting birds on the planet and their ability to change direction in mid-flight makes them an extremely worthy quarry. Doves consist of about 40% of the total bag and constitute Cape Turtle Doves and Laughing Doves, as well as the large Red Eyed Dove. Doves and Pigeons are considered an agricultural pest and there is no bag limit or season, however their numbers peak in March, April and May.
