I lived behind the Strausstown gun club for twenty years. We frequently had to clean up dead and wounded birds from our property after a shoot. We had a couple of bullet holes in our garage door. The noise during a shoot was intolerable, even with our windows shut. Attempts to alert local media (Reading paper) were always "hushed up." Hooray for WFMZ for posting this story.

These people are complete losers! 99% of the people that take part in these events have a 3rd grade level education, enormous insecurity issues and probably earn less than $10,000/year if they work at all.

This is not a sport!Anything where you kill animals for the thrill or watch an animal kill another animal is not a SPORT!I have an idea why don't these people who think this a sport get involved in a real one or better yet get educated in something that can help society not hinder it!Does anyone know if the Humane Society has letters or an email to be sent to our state representatives?I was checking their website and didn't see one.

Do you have any pets? Maybe someone should shoot and/or harm them. A pigeon is a living being like anything else. Sure, they may be a nuisance sometimes, but they are still God's creation.

Yes I have dogs, dogs I use to hunt birds, but they serve a purpose.What do pigeons do? leave fecal matter everywhere cars, buildings, statues. Maybe they do have a purpose, they give people jobs of cleaning up after them.
And yes they are Gods creatures, so tell me , which of Gods creatures did you eat for dinner last night????
I had a nice venison steak, mmmmmmm

Animals taste good

Pigeons are flying rats! Does anyone have a problem killing rats in their house?

disease infested birds, the 3rd white meat, kill it and grill it. I would like to see you fools eat those birds and rot your guts out so you can leave this world as fast as the birds you kill. I would rather deal with disease and bird crap than people with an IQ lower than Forrest Gump.

Wow I'm impressed you can count. At least Forrest Gump was smart enough to eat shrimp and not a pigeons. Why do you think PA is one of the last states to ban this sport. Oh I know because the State is filled with to many jerk off's like yourself.

I wonder if the PA Game Commision has any standards on the # of pigeons and population control?

I read where one guy, Don Bailey, supplies the birds to these shoots. If they ever ended he'd probably have to get a real job and work. Probably some toothless redneck jerk weighing 400 lbs. I get the mental image of Fat Basterd in the movie Austin Powers.

Tell me something I hunt and fish and spend most of my time outside in general. In your defense I even think the kids that blocked the highway in Higgins years ago was a bit extream. But what merrit comes from opening a box, letting a bird fly out and blasting it with a shotgun have. To me there is no sport to that. You can do the exact same thing trap shooting or with sporting clays without a live target. Rat with wings or not

I am an avid hunter and also shoot clay targets on a weekly basis. I am not a fan of the pigeon shoots myself and honestly wish they were banned in PA. I do however have a major issue with the Humane Society. If you do some research on them you will find that they are the #1 anti-hunting organization in this country. They continually hyde behind animal cruelty to make it seem as though they really care about the animals. As a long time hunter who only shoots what I eat I do not agree with the pigeon shoots. But as far as the Humane Society and and their opinion, screw them!!!!!!!!!!
