Plenty of Pigeons in Ohio

We learn from the Repository, printed at Canton, Stark county, Ohio, that wild pigeons were so abundant in the neighborhood of that place on the 26 of October, that of several parties of sportsmen who had gone out in pursuit of them, one killed 1100, another 1000, another 900, and several others from 5 to 600. The game was afterwards distributed gratis to the citizens of Canton. We should like to have such a flight of them in our neighborhood of Stroudsburg, to let our sportsmen try their fowling pieces at them.

November 23, 1843. Plenty of pigeons. Jeffersonian Republican 4(33): 2.
