Two Letters Re: Attaining Food in Urban Locations


One food source that was not mentioned so far in the “Attaining Food in Urban Locations” series that is quite common in the west are Canadian Geese. These birds are not completing their migrations and frequently winter in urban parks or any location where there is water. They can be approached quite closely due to their frequent closeness to humans, and a pellet gun would be more than sufficient to add them to your table. – Tim P.

A large rat trap works for pigeons and doves. Bait with corn or any grain. A tether is recommended and posting it on the top of a post helps.

Back in the 50’s this helped with keeping down the loss of chicken feed. – Crowman in Texas
