Our new series - Andy Crow’s pigeon shooting tips for beginners - is made up of footage we found in our archives, that is still as relevant today as it was two years ago when it was filmed. We’ve compiled the short videos into a playlist on our new YouTube channel, Shooting & Country TV.

This short series covers hide building tips for hedgerows and fields, pigeon decoying tips, the best kit for pigeon shooting, and tips for using flappers and rotaries.

Episode 4 - How to use pigeon decoys - looks at why we use pigeon decoys, which decoys are best (in other words, which ones Andy uses!), and how to set your decoy pattern for maximum effect.

This series will no doubt be useful for all pigeon shooters, but if you’re after something designed for the more experienced shot, check out our “Pigeon shooting with Andy Crow” playlist, where you can watch Crow in action as he tries to keep the pigeons and crows off his crops (“Pigeon shooting with Andy Crow” is a monthly series, so keep an eye out for new episodes).
