#33 was a 22yrd shot all the way down the driveway from sitting at my computer chair by the window. ******* best shot to date.

Like I said from the get go, if I could get my hands on one, I'd pound it with my fists until it was just a bloody meat blob. Since then things have been fixed and the stress level isn't as high, so now I'm not as ape **** about them as I was.

That doesn't mean that I'll stop shooting at them though.

My dad solved his chipmunk problem in an almost humane way. My parents live in suburbia so guns are out of the question as houses are too close and kids are plentiful. So he went the trap route and caught 3-4 per week. There was a 'herd' 'group' 'family' of feral cats behind my grandmother's nursing home that got to know him pretty well.

He'd drive up with the trap and park a bit away, and when walking to the edge of the woods shake the trap a bit so it rattled. After the 4th delivery the cats would come running and sit at the edge of the woods to get a look at the newest challenge. Shortest time to live, 15 seconds.

Yeah, the cops probably won't bother with a guy on a roof with a rifle and scope. Sounds like a good idea

I forgot to update this on Saturday when I got #34.

All weekend we were in and out of the house doing ****, so I didnt really have time to **** with them. I did see at least another half a dozen of them running around though, so I know there's still more out there.

Its getting colder, so I doubt I have much more time left to get em.

Could always smoke them out or kill them that way once they go to a warm spot. Just make sure you clear yourselves out for a few days after you set it off.

Pheasant hunting starts Saturday for us. Then rifle deer season is two weekends later. Pretty stoked this time of year.

Been bow hunting a few times the past two weeks but haven't been presented with a good shot yet.

I just spotted the first one I've seen in months.

Looks like I picked a good day to take off. The riff raff is back.

I got to shoot my buddy's .22lr rifle with a scope and a silencer, you need to get one of those. loudest noise was the hammer on the firing pin, and that was just a click.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't getting the paperwork to get a silencer a huge & expensive PITA? Plus don't you have to have a $500 tax stamp when you get it?

^^^^^^

That was ------- great man!

I'll have to think about setting up a bait station myself.

Still need to get myself a nice pellet rifle with a scope. Anyone have an extra one they'd be willing to temporarily donate to the cause?
