Default Hunting/eating pigeon

The area around my house is a mob scene of pigeons, every single day. And, I know that most other countries around the world eat "squab", and in some European countries, its a high dollar, "fancy" thing to eat . So...I gets to thinkin to myself... Free food, at my front door?

Does anyone know the hunting laws for pigeon in Clark County? Do I need a license? Is there a limit? I know I can't shoot them, but can I trap them?

I'm going to assume they are safe to eat (cooked well done, of course). Not to many open dumps or sewers in Summerlin. I don't think they are eating anything that would be poisons to humans. I know my dogs catch them all the time, and have never gotten sick.

What do you guys think?

Eat flying city rats... I would strongly vote no, at least personally.
Shooting them with a bb gun is only illegal if you get caught Trapping would be good, if someone complains "you are relocating them".
I don't think there is a license required or a limit since pest control can go after them.

Don't eat those birds. I wouldn't touch them with my bare hands.

Those birds the other places are eating are a different breed of bird and they aren't city dwellers like we have here.

Squab is a very young pigeon that is fed a specific diet to maximize the flavor for a its short life.

Pigeon is a disease ridden flying lice trap that should not be confused with its delicious relative.

The discharge of an airgun in Clark County is against the law.

I think you can do it but not with in 100 feet of a building. If that's the case then all the airsoft guns and paint ball guns can't be used.

I think pigeon hunting is more common back east, I've heard from seasoned hunters that wild pigeons are among the best tasting game bird out there and are very similar to quail. But again, they're talking about wild pigeons, pigeons that live completely out in the country and eat all the natural stuff birds eat. Not these disease ridden, french fry eating, exhaust breathing, sewer water drinking bastards that fly around and annoy you at home.

I wouldn't eat city bird. YMMV.

When I was in Iraq last year we shot 30 pigeons in one day with an air rifle, we threw them in the back of the truck. When I got back to the office the Iraqi's saw them and got all excited. They took them home and ate them. They liked them and these birds were dumpster divers.

Im sure our city pigeons are edible here too, but so is a rat. I wouldn't want to eat either unless im starving and my life depended on it.
