I'm a hunter myself and it really doesn't bother me because there are just so many of them to begin with and the population needs to be controlled. It is also not neccesarily legal to shoot a pellet gun so it really isn't a good idea but we really don't have a choice. I believe a natural predetor needs to be introduced to keep their numbers in check.
Yes, I have heard of these. They cost too much money for me though.
In a year I'll be able to become a lifeguard and that earns quite a bit of money. Also, I don't hunt. I never had hunted. But yet I have no problem "taking care" of thnigs like this if it has to come to it. It actually scares me that I can do it without hesitation but whatever. And your very right. It isn't quite
legal to do these things where I live but as you said "what choice do we have". I have been looking into a anti-squirrel gun. Instead of shooting a hard projectile it shoots a soft peice of foam or something of the sort. It compacts on impact with the intended object so it delivers some little amount of pain. I think it hurts less than a tenth of how much airsoft hurts. They have different hardness too. Depending on what size of pest you are dealing with and to come over the fact that it might just be a stubborn little pest. Some who have used this have actually stated that after awhile, the pest that is being shot at develops a liking to being shot.(Thats the part about the hardness of the projectile I was talking about) These don't come cheap either. Some the good ones come at the hefty price of 1000 dollars. These by the way, are legal in most areas.
