Meet Jim


Jim Effting, pigeon racer

From time to time, you may hear me refer to my pigeon fancier friend, Jim. He’s been my pigeon racing mentor, helping me learn about the sport, reading my books for accuracy, allowing me to adopt two of his birds, and helping me construct my loft. Today, I thought it might be helpful for you to put a face with the name, so allow me to introduce you to Jim.
