||In Autumn, he devotes his time to hunting. There are too many hunters and too few pigeons nowadays. When he was young, there were not many hunters, just those from the village. They made hides in the treetops. Some of the pigeons that they trapped in nets in Alduides were kept alive for use as lures. The eyes of the pigeons used as lures are covered so that they do not move and the wild pigeons stop near them when they see them. Muggy weather is the best for shooting pigeons. The pigeons are frightened when they arrive now because they are shot at all over France. They now take 300 or 400 cartridges; they used to take 20 or 30. They used to sell the pigeons they killed.
