Yep it's a necessary appliance, especially in skunk [2-legged and 4-legged] and groundhog country.. I've got a ground hog trying to commit suicide by digging under my barn floor.. workmen and my caretaker have seen him, but I haven't yet.. but, the screen is not in the adjacent window, and the rifle is ready and waiting..
It's an antique: Winchester Model 43, chambered in .218Bee. More than a Hornet, less than a .222. a perfect around the farm caliber..
I've used it on three rabbits trying to ruin my garden so far.. the barn cats like the carcasses.. I guess rabbit goes well with cat-kibble..
I just heard from my wood trim guy, he has about half the family room floor down,, I hope he gets a photo to me before I have to leave and go flying..
Take care,, Greg L
