    Hi,

    I live on 10 acres in California and was wondering what caliber would be good for a 400 yard shot for this neighbors cat that comes running around messing with my chickens and tearing up my lawn chairs while im at work. I feel he needs a to be punished permanently ill note ive already tryed a dog hes a panzy and doesnt seem to like chasing cats however this little bugger has cost me over 200 bux in lawn furniture and 4 chickens over the past week Im also a moose and elk hunter.

    I was thinking of getting a 300Rum thats at one of my local gun stores thats a 26" barrel stainless Savage with a leupold Vx-II
    4x12x40mm A/O please let me know your thoughts are thanks.

    A good way to get that pest while your away at work, is to set 2 leg hold traps about a foot apart and below ground level or just so the jaws are at ground level. Make sure the traps are not in an area where your animals can get in them. Cover the jaws and chain with leaves and put an open can of tuna in between the two traps. If that don't work, set four traps with the tuna in the middle.

    Works most everytime.

    People who own cats should be required to keep them pinned up or on chains just like dogs must be.

    High pressure 22 Pellet guns at close range works nice to.

    Cats are not safe just "walking" through my property.

    Gimpy antifreeze works great for cats just keep your critters away from it. A five gallon bucket with a hole cut in the lid and a can of cat food or tuna and a 160 conobear trap over the hole will snap his neck like a twig. That setup is good for skunks too. Use apples for woodchucks. These methods work good where a rifle can't be employed. Other than that any good varmint round will dispatch him at 400yds. I hate when the neighbors have 500 cats and let them run all over.
