Pigeon Year in Ulster County

This is the pigeon year, and the birds may be expected this season to occupy their accustomed roosts in the towns of Denning and Neversink in very large numbers. These towns are usually the resort hundreds of parties intent on bagging the birds, who pay but little attention to the owners of the soil, but carry off loads of game for sale. Like the huckleberries of the Shawangunk the immense flocks of pigeons add largely to the incomes of our population. — Glennville (N.Y.) Press.
