PostSubject: varmint problem   Sat Aug 14, 2010 8:27 am

i got a varmint problem around my area because i live right on woods and a creek so theres a groundhog, beaver, and fox problem. I already took care if 1 raccoon but i have a gamo big cat and using lead pointed ballistic pellets and im just wondering would that have enough pent. to take down a groundhog beaver and fox? it took me close to 5 shots to kill that raccoon and by that time he was blacking out by the 4th shot he just walked off into the woods. 1st shot dead in the head and some liquid started leaking from his head 2nd shot he started to black. 3rd shot in the ass he jumped again. so just get back to me with that.

I believe you need a 45 pellet gun to effectively get rid of the rest.

I've never really been a fan of pellet guns, every time I've shot something with them...it takes a number of hits to kill, even when I do hit vitals.

When I go dove hunting, the land owner asks us to kill small rodents, raccoons, etc...in return for using his land (plus some fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and flowers for his wife). We generally just use No4 loads with full choke, seems to do the trick and give you a clean take down just fine if you get in close. Otherwise, with larger ones...you put Federal "hi-shok" into em ensure a clean kill.

If you're on land where neighbors would be alarmed by loud gunfire, a .22 centerfire will do just fine as well.

The goal is to kill them, not pump em full of lead and wait for them to die.
They may be considered varmint, but they're live game all the same and should be treated as such.

Ya anything .22 and bigger will give you a clean kill.
\"Watch your language\", I'm guilty of having used a 30-30. Now THATS a clean kill.

Use a .22 and get shorts. Super quiet, and will still do the job.

I wonder if using a shotgun was legal...but then again...it was rabid and we live in a populated area, a place you don't want to fire a high powered rifle as opposed to 12 ga bird shot.

Idunno what the legality of it is, even if it is varmit...but you can sell a well skinned gray fox pelt for more than $100.

EDIT: LAWL nevermind, was thinking of coyotes. Fox pelts are only like $20 haha

I know that his post is late.... just use a compound bow, and either bullet field points on graphite arrows or broadhead razorpoints on the same. its really quiet, and it'll be quick (unless you botch it up!). or, just find yourself a lever-action Marlin. that'll take care of you problem quick.
