Pigeon Hunting 100 Yards in 25mph Wind with Edgun Matador Air Rifle (Slow Motion)

This is Part 1 of a three-part series showing how to make long distance shots with an airgun in high wind. Part 2 shows the data you need and how to estimate it. Part 3 shows how to put that data to work using [free] ballistics software. Visit my channel page to see all three.

This video was captured February 15, 2011 in rural Wisconsin. It shows me hunting pigeons with my .22 PCP air rifle in very high wind (20-30mph or 9-13m/s). This is part 1 of a two-part series re: this hunt. This first part will simply show the shots taken. The 2nd part will dive into the ballistics of how to make these kinds of shots, including how I use Chairgun Pro ballistics software to predict proper hold-over and windage.

The gun used is an Edgun Matador .22 PCP air rifle, sighted in at 55 yards (50 meters). The scope is a Hawke Sidewinder 30 IR Tactical 6.5-20x (shooting @ 10x in this video). The pellets were JSB 18.1g, shooing @ 900fps (274m/s).

The Camera Mount I used to record through the scope can be found here:

The slow-motion camera I use to film the shots through the scope is the Casio EX-FC150. That camera is no longer made, but you can buy its successor (which is actually a better camera than the one I use) here:

The Exact same Hawke Scope that I use in this video (Sidewinder TAC 30 6.5-20x) can be found here:

You can download Chairgun from Hawke Optics' website:

Your pellets in this video seems to be tumbling, or is it just me?

These birds carry diseases and poop everywhere. After spending a few weeks
working with a grain shipping company and seeing piles of shit and dead
birds that took an entire work crew to clean up on a weekly basis... i got
busy with an air-rifle. Even taking a couple hundred birds every day for a
week did NOTHING to the population. I wish the security guys would let guys
come in for target practice.

@Ted's Holdover. I'm sorry for asking which you can just ignore this but I
would like if you responded but birds carry many dieseses like salmonella
it should be very proper to wear gloves. (I have no problem with hunting I
hunt very often i'm just logged in on my mom's account i'm only 14 but
still I think you should wear gloves to stay safe ;) )

Dont know if you get alot of haters or not, but if you do it's just wierd.
Ofcourse everyone is entitled to have their own opinion, but to be hating
on pest hunting... In Sweden where i live, people are talking about hunting
wolfs which are near extinction here. So if you disslike hunting, put your
effort in stopping that first!

Great job Ted. The pigeons eat a lot of corn and wheat. I've heard of
numbers that birds consume anything from 10% to 80% of farmers crops. When
I lived on the farm, we use to kill anything that comes close to those corn
and wheat fields.

That is some awesome shooting, Ted. Thank you for the lesson in how to
handle wind and range. I have learned a lot from watching your vids, the
most important lesson being how far I have to go. I'm shooting Benjamin
Titan and Trail NP springers with Bushnell AO scopes, so I'll never match
your high-dollar gear, but I'm getting better, and that is the milestone I
look at. Thanks again, Ted.

Автор Sirvikrail ( назад)

but on topic..I may have missed the answer, but are these birds invasive? I
have watched some of your videos. As a bird lover, I understand that
invasive bird pests are destructive-to native wildlife and the occasional
farmer (?) and need to be put down.

anyway, late review and question.

Wow nice shooting!!! Anyone who wants to know you can eat pigeons, they
are very similar to doves, except bigger. I have ate them before and
wrapped them in bacon and grilled them. That is the best way to eat them.

I saw your video about if birds can see the pellet. My comment was noting
the birds might actually be detecting the change in the air near them by
the pellet. Here in this video you have 25 mph wind and seems the birds are
not actually reacting just before getting hit. If you read the last comment
as well as this. It might help answer your question about this matter.
Impressive shooting by the way.

Can you eat feral pigeons?...Answer yes. Check the kidneys and liver for
anything uncommon (Spots, Discoloration, Pinkness, Etc...) Only eat animals
with very red livers is my rule but some diseases affect other parts so
look into animal diseases for your part of the woods. Find out what's
common and if you even doubt yourself for a second DO NOT EAT IT.

Is it not illegal to shoot birds with rifles? I know a pellet is not that
large, but can potentially still cause damage if you miss and is
irresponsible. Shotgun is safer. If you want to do L/R work, go to a range
and have your jollies. I am not against hunting either.

How could anyone dislike this... I mean can u do a 100 yard shot in a 26
mph wind? With a direct heart shot ?! well if u hate hunting think about
slaughter house. They just cut the wind pipe and let them suffer!!! Now
think about hunting DIRECT HEAD/HEART/LUNG shot instant kills. well except
for the lung shot. ok don't be trolls ;D

I am really surprised that he leaves the comments up here. Internet is just
full of trolls (penny, juan, etc) who only care to get a rise out of
people. There birds do less for the environment than most of the bugs you
guys destroy with your cars on a daily basis. Also, Yea, that bird reacting
that quickly, he will likely lead a nice long life with that kind of
reaction time, LOL. He is the F1 Driver of the group.

Автор Carlos Pinto ( назад)
dude, If I had an efficient rifle I'd totally do this. It's totally ilegal
here since i don't even have a licence for my air gun and there's no pest
situation, but shooting a few dirty pidgeons is no problem.

Автор Tehaxis ( назад)
Ok I've had three cats, a quick death from a projectile is far less brutal
then a cat tearing you up and ripping your throat out. There have been
instances where our cats would eat the birds and only leave the heads left
for us to pick up around the yard. Pigeons were a big problem where I used
to live in Hawaii, they would poop everywhere, eat all the dog and cat
food. If you left a window or door open unattended they'd fly in, it was so
very frustrating. Plus, all the mites and fleas we got...

Автор pennsy6000 ( назад)
LMAO! You think I care if any one looks? Your dumber than I first thought!
and I guess I have to explain it to your stupid ass once again, statement
about sick is your opinion, not fact, and your opinion doesn't constitute
truth!! It's funny to see you try and change the subject, it only tells me
that I clearly told the truth about you and your sick, psychotic ways!!
