    If all you have is a WSM300 go buy yourself a 12 gauge or get a cage trap bait it with maze and give them a swimming lessons. But if you do get rid of a few more new pooks will keep coming cus there overpopulated. So go hard out on the duckling eating beggers this game bird season.

    If all else fails you'll just have to convince the wife that a couple need to be shot to keep the rest away, and will need to be repeated occasionally.
    You could run with the classic "you need to brake a few eggs to make an omelette" argument

    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.
    Noooo you're doing it wrong. If the pook takes a crap on your face it's going to think it's dominant over you. You need to hold the pook still and take a crap on it so it knows who's boss.

    Stuffed cat in the garden? Get a jack Russell and let it loose. I'd lend you my wirehair, he cleaned up all our chickens one afternoon. He was pretty proud of himself.

    Yep, he had got the lot and arranged them in his kennel run area. Wife was pretty understanding, he was used for game bird hunting and is her dog.

    Shit that's a great idea. Get a dog and chase the pukes. I think someone mentioned that about three pages ago.
    Or a new wife that doesn't complain about shooting pukes could solve the problem.

    if it had been you dog stug would she have been so cool about it
    did you rearrange his backside with a dead chook?
    you could have tried the old wives tales of tieing round his neck till it rotted.
    but most aggravating smartarse dogs ive known would have just ripped it off and eaten it anyway

    My huntaway pup (14 months) did that on friday. It caught a peacock and was having a good old feed when I got there. Gave it a "stern talking to" and then tied what was left of the peacock through her collar and tied her up. Came back half an hour later to find she had eaten the rest of it.

    Don't laugh too hard at that kotuku had an old mate in Joburg that was sick of getting burgled.
    So got him selve two rottys. Got them trained up by the attack dog training centre that they have there.
    Went away on holiday, cut a small hole in the neighbouring fence so that his good neighbors could feed them through this so that they did not have to enter the property. All good for the first few days......then the dogs would not eat
    So neighbour calls the training centre (mate was out of cell phone coverage in Mozambique and had left instructions to not enter the property if there was a problem but call TC).
    Guy from the centre comes around, enters through side gate. Dogs bound up and meet him. He told the owner latter that they looked very healthy and could not see why they had not eaten?
    Goes round the back of house and finds the back door open. Looks into the kitchen see one very scared looking dude sitting up on top of the fridge second dude was under the table.....only half of him was leftoh so that's why dogs where not hungry
    Had very glossy coats though.
    Yarns said it made picking up there poo very interesting
