Wild Pigeons in Oregon

The woods in the vicinity of Portland abound with large flocks of wild pigeons, giving sportsmen a fine opportunity to exercise their skill. G.S. Vanslyke yesterday shot three dozen of the feathered tribe in the course of a half-hour's shooting, within two miles of the city. — Oregonian, July 28th.
