    Default Blowgun bird

    I went out to hunt for some birds today.I ended up getting a mouse in one shot through the shoulder blades and pinned to the dirt. Yesterday i nicked a bird in the head and i saw the feather fly off its head but it wasnt a solid hit.


    I use coathangers with paper cones taped on the end and i also use baboo skewers with paper cones.

    the biggest i have taken is a pigeon with my 7 ft .50 cal blowgun

    Lucky the mice don't have blowguns and are curious about its affects also.

    Your honor ...... there are like a billion people in China. I just wanted to see what the bullet would do to him.....and it was just one. Oh, OK - I get it. Actually, I'm in no position to comment on this, since I kill mice for a living.

    Actually, the approach I take is to rodent proof, or exclude them from a structure. The only time I kill them is when they are alread nesting inside a residential structure. Quite honestly, I've been looking into multiple catch live traps lateley to see if that is a better option. Don't know yet.

    One of the live trap companies does have a multiple live trap system. A rotating wheel similar to a paddle boat is tripped and does a slight rotation when tripped to send the rodent into a holding chamber. The calls are said to lure others into the system. Look at "Haveaheart"

    Mice are naturally curious (rats are not). When you see mice running around or running by they are doing what mice do. Could be playing, could be foraging for food, could be running from a predator. Now if you are asking how do you know if mice (or any other rodent) is nesting inside a structure - it takes a reasonably thorough inspection. Look of entry points - chewed wood, grease marks around small openings, grease marks along flat surfaces. Look for deposits of urine using a black light. Look for droppings. Look for discarded piles of food. Look for disturbed insulation or other bedding material.

    There are several brands on the market. Most of my customers are not willing to pay the added expense of disposal.

    Just wondering if the mouse population is getting scarce and you've taken to trapping them alive to turn loose in another neighborhood. Kinda like job security, well sort of. Saw a nice one out by the woodpile if you need one for stud service I can maybe catch him for you.
    Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he's too old
    to fight... he'll just kill you.

    Now there's a thought. I like the way you think.
