    i guess this is WMD related,

    I was sitting in my backyard doing a little target practice with my compound bow. I was standing about 10 feet away from the door from my garage and i hear a rustling sound inside. Out walks this big ass possum. This gross thing walks about 15 feet in front of me, stops and stares at me, then walks about 10 feet in front of my target and starts chewing on a plant. i sat there watching it for like 5 minutes but I'm no hunter so i didn't shoot it but now i'm having second thoughts since i don't really want a possum living in my garage. I should have ended it, but i wonder if he knows how close he came to death. i've never seen one so ballsy though!

    yea, it walked right past me again and back into my garage so now i think i should've done it. i don't really have anything i can shoot inside my garage so i guess it escaped certain doom.

    Dude wtf...

    Opossums are incredibly filthy nasty motherfuckers, hell bent on reproducing and taking over your home with infestations of rabies, filth, and AIDS.

    They are ALWAYS a kill on sight proposition..... No matter if you have a gun or not. Aggression is the name of this game, so reach down deep and snatch up whatever testicular fortitude you posses.

    Run up on that bitch screaming and waving your hands in the air. If you are not too girly, the opossum will freak and go into sneaky mother-fucker mode, where it will play dead. Fuck that shit, and don't give in to it's devious deceptions (You know better..... DO NOT show any weakness. They can smell your fear, and will react accordingly). Soccer punt the fuck out of it, aiming for the head. Hopefully this concussive blast will give you enough time to find and employ a manly utensil of death of your choice. I myself am a shovel man as it doubles as both a blunt instrument with needed range, and as a decapitation tool. I've also used golf clubs, rakes, and even fence posts to the cranium via opossum swung by tail in a pinch.

    Show no mercy, as the coy bastards will surely do the same to you once they start to push their scourge into your last bastion of sanctity (yo crib).

    i went into my garage armed with my .22 with PMC moderators but could not find it. the landlord has tons of worthless shit just laying around in there so it has plenty of places to hide.

    Do not give up the pursuit. It likely knows you are gunning for it, and has moved into guerrilla warfare tactics.

    Wear tall boots, and watch for surprise ankle bites from it's bacteria and disease laden teeth. Also consider fortifying your room, and watching at night for any places that it might be able to get in and call for re-enforcements by procreating with others of it's miserable kind.

    The ones around here are pretty brave too, they won't take off untill you get within a few feet of them. I can't shoot them here either, I've been tempted to try to spear one with my 91/30 before.

    You need a dog, my dog had torn a couple of them apart.

    You guys think I'm kidding....... Here's a pic I just took to better illustrate the seriousness of vermin control.

    [​IMG]

    Taken right outside my backdoor, just a minute ago.

    Notice the light projecting into the corner of the barn, giving a perfectly lighted and obstruction free line of sight into the small cubby hole leading to the left. That's not a coincidence. Neither are the two rifles sitting cocked and locked on the way out of the back door, both doped precisely for the 67yds (Via Leica LRF) from said back door, to the lighted area in the barn.

    Also of note, and certainly not by chance, are the contents and structure of the lighted area. Walled in by several layers of construction road-signs, boards, straw bails and barn siding tin (on the other side of wall in pic), an ultra-frangible 50gr .224 Vmax will not pass through, nor will a 40gr 22lr projectile.

    Housed within the area, you might also note the bags, and the green basin. The green basin contains scraps of dinner leftovers, vegetables, and the remains of a dead rabbit. The bags contain sweet feed, and standard cow pellets, both of which have been sprinkled throughout the floor to lure those who are unwanted in closer with a promise of an excellent last meal.

    I put out fresh leftovers when I got in today, and it's still early (6:23pm by my clock). Usually the party starts about 9-10pm, so hopefully I'll be able to record some pixels to better show the results of such proactivity.

    My dad had a problem with one sneaking into the garage and eating cat food at the top of the steps leading to the house. He was watching TV one night and heard something at the steps so he grabbed his .22 revolver and took care of it, took it out and tossed it over the back fence into the woods. A week or so later another noise on the steps....

    After a month or so there was no more possum problem around the neighborhood!

    I've punted a possum over a friend's head before.
    I also witnessed my bro in law kill a turkey while sighting in his bow.... Dumb bird walked out of the woods at exactly the same distance that he was shooting:rofl:

    Now you guys got me excited for possum killing again. I shot some when I was in Costa Rica once and we ate them (greasy mother fuckers) and I shoot them whenever I visit my parents because they live outside of city limits.
