    I use them to check in daily on the EO when I'm out goat hunting.

    I did bring 3 of those one year but we ended up eating them before we got loss.

    This craigslist guy is a genius, capture a few pigeons off the street in anchorage and sell them for 25$... might bite him in the *** when the owner of a 25$ pigoen comes to complain that the bird never "homed" and finds it sitting in the cage awaiting re-sale!!!

    I think real homing pigeons were the only thing to use before cell service if you didn't want the pony express guy reading about your secret hunting spots!

    I used to work with a guy in Kasilof who raised homing pigeons.
    He sent them all over the state to be released and then timed them coming home.
    The young chicks were sent off to a race to be acclimated or whatever its called. And raised up to flying age.
    Then all the birds for a race were released with legbands so you knew who's bird's got there first.
    I couldn't tell you what there worth but registered birds might be worth his asking price.
    Buy a mating pair and the young will return to wherever you raised them.
