I am new here on the board, this is my first post.
Here in WA (prior to the ban on using dogs to tree a cat) they used to use a 22LR on them.
The reasoning was, bleed them out, then they will fall out of the tree once they loose consenous. This prevented the cats from leaping from the tree after being pluged with a high power round and fighting out with the dogs until it expires.
These days here in WA, unless it is a special permit for damage control, the use of dogs is out of the question.
Any standard deer hunting rifle is more than sufficient for putting a cat on the ground.
