Yeah, didn't know it was fish. I have a 6 foot diameter koi pond, oh God I was pissed when a 50.00 fish disappeared. Don't know if it was from the ground or the air, but I put a canopy of netting over the water, and added lights to thwart night scavengers. It worked--

You can go to jail for killing them, call your animal control if all else fails, usually it's just 1 or 2 culprits. A barking dog is a good deterrent as well.

Good luck!

If it's on our property, pest animals are legal to shoot. Deer and game, yeah that needs a license and in season. Can't have dogs here with my father.



Netting help prevent them from getting the fish, but it don't stop them from trying. You can see holes where they ripped it open.

Looks nice. Maybe when your fish get big enough, they'll great white that fucker. Koi can get huge!! Thing is though, cats you can't trap and kill(openly) and they'll wipe out more fish than anything else.

Just be careful, where I live you cannot discharge a firearm within city limits. Hate for you to get in trouble over cats or racoons or opossums.

@neo. It's 350$ a year to use a trap, extra 100$ per season per animal(you need separate permits for separate animals...), Another 100$ to remove it from your property. And it must've released onto someone else's property following with the owners signature allowing it.... End of the year total for us to remove coons possums and chipmunks is around 1500$ per year. Fuck that.



I'd rather shoot em for free. But there are the times someone gets pissy.... So I have to play the good guy sometimes... Looks like I'm gonna need to get onto making that noose on a stick



If that's a dukes brand dog proof I suggest looking up making it double throw. Doubles your chances of catching. It's really easy to do with just hand tools.

Another unsolicited tip if you want it is use marsh mellows as bait in those traps.

I understand some areas have all the stupid fees, like I said money grabs. I'm glad I can get a nuisance animal permit for free in my state. Don't even have to have a hunting license.

My opinions are my own. If you disagree with them please take a big healthy crap in your hands and give yourself a round of applause.

They are goldfish, maybe 7 inches long. Big fuckers about 20 years old. Got them as a kid at a fair.



I use pellet guns. More quiet and just as effective, especially point blank ,😉








Marshmallows were the plan. Usually works best in winter with these cages, slightly char one corner so it's easier to smell.

I remember seeing videos on youtube on how to make catch/release traps out of wood and metal mesh for a fraction of what they go for in the store.

I agree with others, you don't wanna fuck with most wild animals especially raccoons.
Vaper buys pod system, asks for a 510 adapter. LOL for days

Itl be here in 2 days.


Il find a way to deal with them alive somehow, untill then il be shooting the bastards. Possum's get free ride so I will need to find a good way to "release" them from the trap without any harm towards myself.

I think I've shot all the chipmunks this year, haven't seen one in over 2 weeks. Possums and racoons are here 6 days a week. Some possums are released here or taken to the nature preserve(illegal here...) Racoons are shot or taken away 18 miles to "racoons Grove"
