In Topic: Last pigeon needed for the pie shell...

09 June 2017 - 09:06 AM

I have looked and looked for the Pigeon Pie recipe and I can't find it.  Apart form wanting to send it on to you it isn't too big of a deal except for psychologically. I have known in my heart of hearts (for over twenty-five years) that I had it readily available and could make the pie at any time.  Except now I can't.  I'll keep looking and if I come across it I'll send it on to you.

I guess it's time for me to shoot some pigeons and start experimenting.

This is what I did with my last pigeon I shot a couple of years ago:

I had an experience like this years ago with pigeons at a friends dairy.  We used shotguns, which you cannot do of course, but I brought it up to say that if you do get a crow, keep in mind that it is grain fed and, contrary to what you might have heard, crows are supposed to be good eating.

 

If the slingshot isn't working for you perhaps you could string some fishing line across their flight path.  The chance of fouling their wings in the line may be enough to keep them out.

I have a pigeon pie recipe at home.  I'll try to remember to bring it in and send it off to you.  It is by an award winning chef (now long dead) James Beard.

In Topic: ft./sec. comparison

Most slingshots are shooting between 175 and 300 ft/s. 

The most valuable comparison is foot-pounds of energy.

In Topic: Teak ?

I wouldn't do it.  Teak has a very straight grain and it splinters fairly easily.  It also has a lot of natural oils (this is what makes it valuable for boating) and it doesn't glue all that well.  It is also very porous and does not finish well.

Teak has become pretty valuable as it becomes harder to get.  If you have a lot you might be able to sell some and get a more interesting wood.
