here in New Zealand they encourage us to slaughter them en masse.
and as such I oblige.

the little sons of bitches are PROTECTED in Australia.

I call that the civil equivalent of "if you can't beat them, join them"
or maybe more like a defeated general faced with either joining with the enemy or being mercilessly slaughtered.

I go with the latter, but I go down firing wildly.

I have lost many foods to these jerks while camping, they get so damned brazen that the only lesson they understand comes with a sling.

Whenever I read something like this one thing comes to mind....
You need more practice.
And that opinion is based on experiance.

One season in Wyoming (when I lived there) every Deer or Antelope took two shots to finish off. First year with a new to me rifle.
I was so disgusted with myself I swore I would not hunt the next year if I couldn't shoot better.
I practiced. And I adjusted my scope. And I practiced. And I shot a couple of hundred rounds over the course of the year.
Never again did any animal suffer at my hand. And many friends asked to hunt with me knowing they would get their meat in the freezer.

Practice. And know your target.
A hole and blood does not mean a kill.
Incidentally, I have a sawed off double barrel 12 gauge. 18 1/4" barrels.
It develops a good pattern at 25-30 yards. Closer and the shot hasn't opened up. That is due to the plastic wads.
So at 5 feet, your load hadn't begun to blossom.
Go out and spend a few shells getting familiar with your shotgun.
Practice makes perfect.

this coon took two shots of 7 1/2 bird shot at about 20' up a tree. I was using my 20" barrel mossy 12ga.

my first shot hit him in the side and that spun him around and then i hit him again right in the chest dropped him to the ground flopping like a fish looking for water.

That is my size 16 hunting boat next to him to show how big this prick was.

I walked out on my front deck in the middle of the night and he was there to greet me growling and hissing at me. So i sentenced him to death. I opened the door right back up grabbed the mossy and a flash light and met him at his tree of choice.

nice

They look like my brother's cat.

Here's a possum that we caught checking out our chllybin
when we were eating our meal between shoots.
It took 8 quick rounds from my 10/22 carbine
and a 12 guage #2 at about 15 metres (all within about 4 seconds)
and it really doesn't seem to have liked it.

i think i'll go do some possum shooting somewhere out of town soon and get away from these goddamned earthquakes, though I can guarantee they have totally screwed all my rifles' scope zeroing already, grrr.
