I was out Pigeon Shooting with Sam on Wednesday and as I was coming back across the field having dropped a few birds at the vehicle and it was pretty clear that the arms on the Pigeon Magnet were reflectign the sun badly. On every turn of the magnet it pretty much flashed a warning to incoming pigeons! We brought the magnet in and just carried on shooting over a Pigeon Flapper, a couple of bouncers and a few Dead Birds on Dead Bird Cradles. This problem with the magnet, batteries and bouncer poles is something we come across on any sunny day and we've tried a few camo tapes, sprays and sanding down paintwork but we've not had total...

These Spring Decoy Pegs not only raise the decoy to increase vistibility but they also give fantastic and realistic movement that helps to catch the eye of passing Pigeons. 

These Decoy Motion Stakes are made to work with shell decoys,...

An expereinced shooter will tell you it's essential to cover your face and hands when decoying, stalking or pursuing a wary quarry.
