Shooting farmyard feral pigeons with an air rifle

Instagram star Dan Thor goes back to his roots, shooting feral pigeons around the farmyard with an air rifle.

The birds are proving tricky, and it’s difficult to see them clearly inside the barns, but with a bit of help from James’s drone Dan manages a decent bag, learns a few lessons along the way, and rediscovers the joy of pottering around the farmyard with an airgun just as his father did years ago.
