    I got bored and looked it up. I was really hoping to use up some more lo-base lead.

    Answer: According to CDFW Senior Environmental Scientist Karen Fothergill, you are correct that the rock pigeon is also being called by all those other names, but as of July 1, 2017, they are now legal to hunt. Prior to that date there was no regulation specifically allowing for take. The law requires that in order to hunt a particular species, there must be specific laws stating when, how many and method of take. Rock pigeons have been added to the CCR Title 14, section 472 along with starlings and house sparrows. They are classified as a non-game bird and a valid hunting license is required to hunt them. Hunting rock pigeons also requires the use of nonlead ammunition.

    It still is in certain places. I'm told one top us shooter made over $300k last year at pigeon shoots. They are still very popular, with lots of money on the line, in certain states and countries.
