The number of pigeons can of course vary markedly from week to week. The results of the shoot is dependent on the weather, wind, how the crops are developing this season and not least on the marksmanship skills of the hunter.
Depending on the time of year, the shooting can be over different crops (oilseed rape, spring barley, peas and beans) or over stubble depending on where the pigeons are feeding at the time.
