    Legally they are classed as a gamebird so can only be shot on the wing by a licensed gambird hunter.There is know law about running them down in a vehicle but your good lady might go sceptic about wheelies in her garden. The other option is kill the bastards anyhumane way as possible and don't get caught.And don't publish your sucsess rate

    But put a wallboard pin in the cotton bud sabot and it will go through 18mm MDF and through a garage door into a car bumper (I was 13).

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    They generally won't stay still long enough for me to take a crap on them so this seemed easier.

    Try putting up warning notices around the boundary of your Garden.

    I.E.
    "No Pukekos Past This Point".

    If that doesn't work then maybe you could request a family group conference and politely ask them to stay off the garden.

    If by a remote chance that doesn't work , and I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work, then I'd blast them with a 12ga and make sure you have open chokes fitted if your only shooting 25m.

    Cheers
    Pete

    Cool, keep us posted.
    I'm interested to hear if the foil works.

    All jokes about taking a crap on a pook's head aside I think you are doomed to fail. Wild animals are driven to survive and obtain food. If your garden has food then all harassing them will do is make them wait until you are not looking before they come in and start destroying things. Ultimately you need to either kill them or keep them out with physical barriers like chicken netting cages over your veg plants.

    However a bit of backyard target practice is always fun so try all the suggestions first.

    massive is totaly correct but try this
    dig a massive hole conseal yourself in said hole.
    wait for prey.
    grab said pook by legs literally scareing the shit out of him/her.
    step 2
    after wiping pook shit from face and general area repeat until pooks desist or you run out of hidey holes
    it goes without saying amount of pook excreta will vary with size of pook so dress accordingly and grip the smaller ones more gently.

    That is portraying the wife's mood... there will be a problem if the birds do not depart from the garden.
