    I know an old Maori fella who always has them in the freezer, weka too. Loves them. Always trying to give me some. He's often given tui, but aint too keen on it , reckons it's too much plucking and not that tasty.

    Wood pigeon (Kereru) is supposed to have full protection since the 1930s
    I lost a boat once and was in survival mode for three days, this given scenario can be excepted as reason for eating these birds.
    But other than that they remain protected, not sure on the grey area of Iwi?

    I lost a wife once, bitch ran of with my best friend, could I use that as an excuse to harvest pigeon?...or is a boat closer to the heart....any pigeon I ever shot had no protection, only feathers.

    Customary rights maybe, but not legal customary rights, a senior Māori figure got prosecuted not long ago, think they found three in his luggage at Invercargill airport?

    There was always talk of in the area I grew up in. Never have wanted to try it myself. Plenty else to eat out there...

    How did we get from how to legally have a protected species taxidermy to eating them.
    It’s illegal to possess let alone eat one.
    I’m all for mounting an already dead bird but it has to be done following the letter of the law.
    Remember the 7 Ps; Pryor Preparation Prevents Piss Poor Performance.

    Because investigating eating of protected species by forum members will mean the police won’t have time to do armed raids looking for bunny guns

    the best time to pluck them is around july after gorging on miro berries
