    If I say anything else the swear filter will cut me off. I'm getting mad just thinking about them. One killed my favorite hen 3 years ago. I wish I had buried it so I could dig it up and shoot it again.

    Where's BR? I should have [​IMG]ed him for feeling bad about shooting one


    Oh yeah, I saw your last post on the Eatemup thread. There's an Ameraucana chart available on the Ameraucana site, too

    G

    You need a better cat or a better dog. I've had both cats and dogs that will kill those horrible possum creatures.
    Though 2 be fair it takes 2 cats, 1 can't do it alone

    I wish I could catch 2 possums at the same time. Then I could pick up the first one and beat the second one to death with it

    Yeah used the baby possum to beat the mamma to death - the cats couldn't lift the floorboards to dig it out

    I felt bad shooting the fox. The raccoon was cute, but deserved to die. The cats were self defense. But the possums? I like to kill 'em slow...
    Hate 'em
    Hate 'em

    Now that is combining sports! Baseball, fishing, and shooting all in pursuit of possum.

    I've taken many out as well. Louisville Slugger or aluminum bat are equally effective. Remember I live in a densely populated zone full of paranoid yuppies.

    I never told you about the possum we encountered when we were caretakers. This dang thing killed the neighbor's cat over its food, hid in our basement stairwell, and just made a general nuisance of itself. We sicced our dog on it and he chased it off many times (it lived in the neighbor's crawl space) but finally one day I had it cornered in the stairwell and it met my bat. We tossed it out on a busy 6 lane divided road that passed in front of our apartment to let a truck finish it off or to let it cross the road into Detroit. Unfortunately for me, a cop spotted me "releasing" the creature onto the roadway and said nope, can't do that. So he tossed it in his trunk, turned the corner onto the sidestreet, pulled it out of the trunk and onto the lawn, and popped it. [​IMG]

    I tossed it in the trash and no more issues...

    Don't feel bad for shooting foxes

    They are nearly as bad as dam possums.
