Give them to the deer and make the humans hunt unarmed if you're out for a challenge.

On first look I read WiFi, E-Compass as Wile E. Coyote and it made sense.

Species covered by the change include raccoons, foxes, coyotes, opossums, striped skunks, weasels, bobcats and porcupines.

Go gettem, boys.

Spotting still illegal though, because we are sportsmen, not senseless killers.

PA hunters must be a bunch of weak cowards with no hunting skills.

When I go hunting, I prefer my game pre-shot, cleaned, cut and packaged up but I don't need no sissy night vision goggles.
 
2020-09-28 9:05:17 AM  
I guess I would prefer hunter to be able to see what they are shooting at. This is not for deer hunting. I would assume that PA restricts deer hunting to daylight hours just like everywhere else.

Soon to be approved: land mines, armored gun emplacements, Apache Helicopters, and ballistic drone strikes. Go get them skunks PA

What about adaptive camouflage suits and thermonuclear wristwatches?

With the exception of the coyotes and Bobcats, you can get all these critters in a live trap you buy at fleet farm, or whatever local farm supply shop. Is there a reason you need to re-enact rainbow 6 while hunting? I get hobbies are expensive; guns and ammo aren't free, but who in the hell needs to go hunting with 3000 dollars worth of gear to plink raccoons and skunks with a .22?

Fano: What about adaptive camouflage suits and thermonuclear wristwatches?


I have few options for dealing with raccoons that doesn't involve shooting them at night.  Thermal or night vision is a good option for that, and much more humane if it allows you to take your time on the shot vs shooting a running raccoon because they got startled.

In many cases, a live trap leaves you with no options.  In Ohio, you can kill them in the trap or release it right there.  You can't move it.

Also, live traps get barn cats more than the raccoons.

Just drop the equipment off here, with receipts.  I swear I won't return it and use the cash to buy a new gaming rig.  I mean ... who would DO something like that?!

Interesting article, but we are going to legally take the guns next year, so it is kind of pointless.  Unless it is an ironic performance art piece.  Then it is very noteworthy

This is why people are against any gun regulations, because they believe people like you will stop at nothing short of confiscation.

I don't think you're helping, but by all means, speak the truth as you see it.

It's all I can do to not run over deer walking across the street in my neighborhood. If you need all that crap to kill one you might want to take up a new hobby.

Until we get shoulder fired tactical nukes I dont think we should be running around calling ourselves a "free country".

Try hunting raccoons at night successfully enough to protect your cage free, free range chicken flock.  You'll take all the help you can get.  Or maybe not, perhaps you are far more skilled than I.  If so, please give me some tips.

We had a structure on my farm that held those free range chickens at night so we could sleep. I can recall one singular fox that tried to get in there but he didn't last long... my grandfather was a heck of a shot with iron sights.

Go gettem, boys.


The type of people who hunt these particular animals do it seriously, and they are absolutely bottom of the barrel human beings. It's not that some of these critters don't need culling, it's just that the people who hunt them have absolutely no regard for anybody else around them... they'll set traps and gun hunt in public parks; they go out of their way to be obnoxious to others, and feel ownership of their "territory" (yes, even when it's public land). Why Pennsylvania feels the need to double down and let them hunt at night is beyond me - poaching is a problem across the country, and this sort of thing won't help law enforcement.

I use live traps and relocate them to a local state forest with the permission of our local ACO and warden.  Have only had to kill one coon here in about 6 years, have relocated about 30.

Because shooting weapons at night, guided only by sensors, with which hunters have minimal training and experience, and no visibility beyond the target, is definitely a well-regulated activity.

Well, no.  Not all of them.  I only hunt on my property and only enough to keep the population down.

Somehow I think this is less about hunting and more about getting night vision and thermal sets to the rednecks before Civil War 2.0

If you eat what you hunt, then how is it different than going to a supermarket? Trophy hunters and poachers should be fair game with the same thermal cameras and night vision scopes.

I mean, besides you missing the obvious trolling especially given his name, WTF is wrong with you that's your go to thought for dealing with something you don't like?
 
2020-09-28 10:02:00 AM  
eh not sure i agree with the legalization of such tech for hunting and who the hell would bother with hunting Porcupines?     I never heard their hides/pelts had any value, their quills perhaps to some degree to native american crafts people  have some value but I am doubtful their would be enough to make it viable.

I think technically that makes them not free-range.  I hear you though, and yeah, I lock my hens up at night too.  Sorry girls, but at least you're alive to biatch to be let out come morning.

The only game I'd being that kind of tech to is feral hogs because they're: a) nocturnal b) incredibly destructive and c) surprisingly dangerous if they figure out where you are.
