and squirrels. A dog or cat isn't an option just yet. I'd love to hear what has worked to rid your area of critter issues. I live (barely) inside the city limits, so I can't discharge a firearm legally. Do any of the decoys work? What about coyote or human urine around the perimeter? Motion detecting sprinklers? Those little supposedly-bird-repelling holographic-looking
BB and pellet guns are not considered to be firearms under federal law, because they expel projectiles by the action of compressed air, rather than explosives. 18 USC § 921(a)(3)
Not even a pellet gun? My son has a pellet gun that's pretty lethal on small game but wouldn't really be considered a firearm.
You just have to be careful about the direction you shoot in regards to neighbors, trying to direct your shots for the right trajectory to end up either into the ground or into the trees, but they are pretty effective.
This is spot on….Today went to look a5 garden. All sweet corn that was pollinated is now GONE. Flat, broken, on ground. When wife came home, she saw a coon running from property. Tonight, will have a surprise for him if he comes to visit before mosquitos eat me alive or I go to bed.
I had to borrow a shovel, Friday - not having thought to carry one to the garden that morning.
Wiley Coyote has had too good of a hunting season. He left a rabbit ready for skinning laying in a garden path. I carried it up to bury where there are some large rocks.
I doubt that this will keep it from Pepe laPew or Wiley if he comes back for the rabbit but, I tried.
