Squach... I think the PETA males might be a bad example...LOL

As for your other question I have a cat as well guns. I gave up hunting back in 74. Just wasn't interested in it anymore. There is bad in everything. There are Hunters and then there are the poachers, law breakers and hunting season warriors that can't make a clean kill if they tried. Those are the ones that give the real Hunters a bad name.

A fellow hunter I met on these threads said it very well I think. He said there are two kinds of people in the woods, hunters and killers. We try to encourage the former and discourage/eliminate the latter.

So you own cats AND guns?!!? I guess that makes you a very caring nutter! LMAO!

OT: Never had a problem with hunters on my land. Friends are allowed again; now that I've gotten rid of all the cats and pheasant, grouse, turkey, and other wildlife are starting to return in sustainable numbers. Pre-cat-eradication though, wildlife had dwindled to so few in numbers that I had to ask friends to not hunt here for quite a few years.

The only real problem in this area now are poachers. I've come up with some highly effective means of dealing with them. One of my favorite is photographing their vehicle with license-plate and their identifiable location visible. Then leaving a note on their windshield that says, "You are poaching. Your vehicle has been photographed and the photo has already been uploaded to a safe place on the internet. Should you ever return or anything further happen, instructions are left with others to forward your photograph to authorities."

Since they've no idea of who owns the land that they were just poaching on, it's fun to watch them through binocs when they get back to their vehicle and go into apoplectic fits after reading the note. Looking every which way to try to figure out which farmhouse in the distance belongs to this land. After they come to the conclusion that they're screwed, there's not ONE thing they can do about it but leave. LOL!

I've yet to see a repeat customer after they've been given this courtesy lesson.

Too bad that the same rule for mushroom-hunters doesn't apply to those with guns: "There's smart ones ... and dead ones."

There was a problem with cats on my land, but they're all dead now. The mushroom-hunter's law applies to them quite well. Since there's no such thing as a smart cat .... that leaves only one kind that can ever be on my land -- dead ones.

Off-topic humor:

A Native American (1st Nations) friend of mine told me that "Sasquatch", when correctly translated, means "man with large member".

I never asked if the Sas or Squatch part of this pertained to this correct translation, because I just didn't care, beyond the humor aspect of it.

But I thought you might get a chuckle out of it considering STINKCAT's fascination and obsession with male genitalia.

Do you have your land posted? Having your land posted adds weight to the prosecution once you get to court. I've found that the same "trail cams" I use to monitor the game on our land work very well for catching poachers and trespassers. I've been instrumental in prosecuting a few poachers down through the years. I've also worked with the local fish & game authorities on a volunteer basis to prevent poaching and apprehend poachers (especially jack-lighters). I and many of my hunting friends recognize poachers as the number one enemy of the lawful ethical hunter. If I see someone violating the laws and regulations out in the field I will takes notes and report them in short order. Book 'em Danno!

Alright FUNKYPUSS, let me aid in your education. What is being discussed here is EXTERMINATING cats, not HUNTING cats. I don't hunt cats, I am not by the farthest stretch of anyone's imagination a "little man", and I have absolutely no use for viagra. Try opening your mouth without spewing ignorant stereotypical bullshit all over the place once in a while.

Maybe you should talk to a therapist about your fixation on the male genitalia before it gets out of hand.

<quoted text>Do you have your land posted?
Tried to keep it posted. But apparently all the surrounding farmers used to think of this land as their community hunting-grounds for generations. They kept tearing down all my signs. So I realized I'd have to rely on more creative methods to stop all of them. The surrounding land-owners have stopped their poaching -- mostly. A huge source of them was one farmer that told all his friends to hunt here, until I verbally confronted a few and asked how they got permission. They were not too pleased with having to go back to that guy and tell him what an ass he is for telling them to go hunt on someone else's land. I suspect he lost all his hunting "friends". These at least were respectable and responsible hunters. I almost thought of giving them permission after that, but this was during the time when most of the wildlife was decimated from all the cats, so even close friends weren't allowed then.

I still add to my collection of tree-stands every other year, it's costing them money each time they lose one. Odd, that not one of them has ever come to ask for them back. They just buy a new one and try again next year. I bet if they added it up, they'd find that poaching on my land is more expensive than buying a license. LOL Calling the local game-warden became a futile effort. They're all related out here. If he came out on a call for poaching after dark he'd only give them a verbal warning. Not even confiscate their guns or issue a citation or anything.

So ... I realized I was on my own in this one. My methods have slowly but surely worked. It's difficult to reverse several generations of local learned behavior. But no shots at all were fired on my land this year, the first year that's ever happened! This last hunting season I only gave one trapper-poacher a lesson. He lost all his brand new body-grip traps. Nice ones too! I could start a flea-market of hunting supplies for all they've lost over the years.:-)

Relentless vigilance and creativity are my best weapons. One year I would even blast them with a few hundred watts of rock-music. LOL Did that as a way to alert them they were shooting toward a house, but it drove them off as well. Though I'm still trying to catch the guy that dumps deer-hides and carcasses alongside the road each fall. What a wasteful f***! He even waits until the hides are too rotted for me to do anything useful with them. The two different years I've seen him in the distance I didn't have my camera or binoculars with to get a license-plate number. I relentlessly kept an eye out for him this year, but no dumped hides or bones. So maybe he quit, or got caught, or found a new place to dump.

Most likely a kid did it. He's also probably a future criminal, if not a budding serial killer. Hopefully he's as stupid as he is cruel and will be caught early in his sick, pathetic career.

This must be just like all those deeply disturbed serial-killers in the making that are eradicating all those other invasive-species like Kudzu, Purple-Loosestrife, Gypsy Moths, Emerald Ash-Borers, African Cichlids, Burmese Pythons, Brown Tree Snakes, and Eurasian Watermilfoil from their lands and lakes. MANY of which are escaped pets or were released from pets' habitats (Eurasian Watermilfoil came from pet fish aquariums).

Or how about all those sickos that run animal-shelters, they're nothing but a bunch of child-murdering pedophiles because they have to euthanize animals every day. And every farmer and rancher that has to humanely put down an animal with a gun must be molesting and murdering everything in their county. Those damned sickos! And what about all those people in stockyards murdering all those cattle every day for your McBurgers? I bet they're a hide-out for all the serial-killers that nobody can find! And all those hunters that provide food for their family by hunting, I bet they're the worst of all!

I bet you're onto something!

My friend from church has a little over 1,200 acres of property and he's always dealing with poachers/trespassers on his property. Thereís been more than a couple times that heís asked for help to round up cattle, because of trespassing, where someone opened a gate and didnít close it.
Iíve helped him post signs, replace signs that were torn down, fix gates/fences that have been knocked over or cut and the list goes on.
Weíve confiscated tree stands; bait stations, a couple game cameras and a fake deer decoy. Last summer he found a small rubber boat hidden in some brush by one of his ponds in the back property.
A couple years ago we were working on one of the ridges felling timber and we saw a truck parked on the far side of his property. The only farm road to that section had a locked gate and it was posted no trespassing.
We went down to my friendís truck, drove around to where the gate was and sure enough the lock had been cut. We blocked the entrance with his truck and I used my cell phone to call the cops.
The cops came out and recorded the license number, etc and my friend had to press charges, To make a long story short, the trespasser had to pay a $50 fine, reimburse my friend for the damaged gate and the judge warned the man to stay off my friends property, or the next time heíd sit in jail for a month.

Find whatever way that you can to destroy all feral and stray cats on-site. If you don't destroy stray-cats as well, the source of all feral-cats, then you'll never be rid of feral-cats either. Avoid using traps if at all possible because trapping is what slowed everything down to where cat populations have now sky-rocketed out of control. TNR advocates are at least right about one thing (and ONE THING ONLY); trap and kill doesn't work either because it is based on the very same flawed method that they use -- slow, random-chance, inefficient, easily outfoxed traps. There's a reason the phrase "hunted to extinction" is so well-known in all cultures across all lands. It is the *ONLY* method that is faster than a species can out-breed and out-adapt to. The following link (of a study done by the University of Nebraska) is some good documentation on the most humane ways to confront a feral-cat problem where you live; including the best firearms, air-rifles, and ammo required. Though avoid using their suggested slow and inefficient trapping methods that got us into the ecological disaster that we have now. http://deenawinter.files.wordpress.com/2010/1...
On advice of the local sheriff where I live I used a .22 equipped with a good illuminated-reticle scope and a laser-sight for use when they are most active, dusk to dawn; as well as to afford precision aim for a humane kill. I shot every last one of them on my property, hundreds of them, to restore all the native wildlife to proper balance. Mission accomplished! 100% total success! This is even a more humane method than terrorizing trapping and animal-shelter methods; and why it is the preferred feral-cat management policy in so many areas today. One moment the cats are happily stalking defenseless animals to cruelly torture again, the next they are dead and don't even know what happened, they don't even have time to make a sound. Making your land 100% cat-free is something that cat advocates haven't been able to solve nation-wide for 30-40 years. On my land only 1 person in only 2 seasons was able to accomplish what they couldn't attain in decades. Why is that? The cost per cat was also only 0.3 CENT, 3 cats PER PENNY, a ONE-TIME expense (5000 rounds on sale for only $15). All cats gone for the price of a few cups of coffee. And contrary to another famous TNR-Advocate's bald-faced "vacuum effect" LIE ... NO CATS REPLACED THEM. The NATIVE predators and their required NATIVE prey that WAS here and BELONGS here is what replaced their lousy invasive-species cats that had destroyed the entire native food-chain.
May you have as much success as I did, and so quickly and inexpensively too.
There are about 80 million feral cats in North America. Even at 3 cents a cat it would cost about 2.5 million dollars to get rid of them. Small price compared to devastation caused by feral cats to the ecosystem.
