I had my trusty pocket pistol with me, while doing some work around my poroperty, and a fat woodchuck comes ambling out of the weeds from the direction of the Chicken tractors. At ten feet he was no match for the little cb caps from the small auto. Down in 2, home in 1. Since this critters demise, things around the coops have settled considerably. Do 12 pound wood chucks threaten a flock, or are they just after the corn and pellet feeds? PS. last year, 1 possum of middle development, 3 Raccons of various size, and 1 Chuck, have been removed. 2 roaming dogs and atleast one Coyote have been targeted, but no shots or joy there, they are wary.
