    Sounds similar to something we did as kids. Though that entailed stale bread, water and carbide crystals.. wet bread with water, add carbide crystals, throw to gulls... BOOM..!! OK, I was 10, what did I know about conservation..? Everyone hated gulls and wanted rid of them.. I thought I was doing my bit.

    Hmmm. I'm wondering why you'd have trouble with birds when you have a shotgun handy?

    There are some small trees on my regular jogging path. The last few years there has been a Western Meadowlark (the Kansas state bird) that swoops at me as I run by. I can only assume it is a momma and it has a nest up there with youngins. By looking at the shadows of me and the bird, it looks like it gets within a foot of my head. I'm sure I look like some kind of escapee as I run along the sidewalk thrashing my arms in the air!

    Maybe I should run with a shotgun...

    Nah, no shotgun needed, just wear a bird proof hat.

    Ha, nice thought. Try whacking birds with a shotgun anywhere other than an accepted game shoot, or on a farm carrying out pest control and you'll be looking at prison food for a couple or three years. I kid you not. Get this.. if shoot an air rifle or BB gun in my garden and the BB or pellet strays over our fence I have committed an offence. If I travel to my gun range with a loaded magazine in my bag (not in the pistol / rifle) I have committed an offence. This even applies to PCP air rifles which have magazines.

    Like I keep sayin', there's a house down the road for sale.

    This is Alabama where concealed carry permits cost an average of $20 a year- $15 a year if you're over 65.

    Rarely snows and when it does, we handle it sensibly. We stay home for a day or two until it melts.

    Buncha amateurs on here. I had to be maybe 8 or 9 and went with a friend about 1.5-2 miles away to our fishin spot. well, there were some fish we could eat like bluegills, the occasional rock bass and if you were really lucky, a brook trout. This time around i had a few decent sized bluegills, my friend had a rock bass and the day turned and we were catching chubs. well, we were young and incredibly stupid (to be described shortly) and if we got a chub, we would reel it in with about 3-4 feet of line out, let the fish dangle at the end then jerk the pole up as fast as we could. Well that would put the unwanted fish in low earth orbit if we timed it right. Think like a vertical catapult. The gulls would follow them and some even snagged them during their trajectory. On one consequent launch, the hook and line came down and managed to pierce my friend's ear. He screamed for a minute or so . well, that kinda ended out fishing trip so we started walking home. Notice, I didn't mention removing the hook or even cutting the string. So we're walking down the streets in suburbia with about 3 feet of fishing line AND a fishing pole being held by me. He would say something about me being a jerk or something and I'd lightly tug on the pole. He'd then scream like when it initially happened. We repeated the commentary, jerking and screaming for all 1.5-2 miles. We got back to his house and there was his mom wondering what in the world she was looking at. First thing she did was laughed, then cut the string and told me to get my mom or dad. I did and my dad came over. She told him what she saw and they both about collapsed laughing. Dad pushed the hook through and Jesse's ear was cleaned and bandaged. They talked about that for years.

    We had a modified version of this that involved bullfrogs and M80's thrown into the air. It was pretty disgusting.

    Someone I may know used to go to the airshow in Cleveland, OH as a youth and feed the seagulls from Lake Erie Ex Lax. Just make sure you could hide under cover.
