Do you have a 22mag? That might be a good choice.KS, I did use my sr556 once vs the rem870 and it blew the inside out. Basically it was like taking a hotdog out of a hotdog bun,,, and just leaving the bun.
These things smell horrendous, some earlier said the eat them... Dude,,, it would have to be way way past an end of the world event for me ever to want to eat one of these things.
Another time I hit one with 00 at close range. It was like shooting a 2 litter bottle of pop, it exploded parts everywhere. Tip: Don't shoot at close range.
I moved away from "ordinances" back in 2007. There's no way we would ever own or live on land with restrictions again.Looks like a .410 would make short work of them and the ammo is less than 12 gauge. Of course only if you don't have any ordinances in your area.
Some I know put motion detectors in his wife's flower garden that would play dixie in the bed room and he would get up with a at first a gun that I lent him and later purchased a 12 ga shot gun that he also used on the SE diamond backs that were showing up in his Florida subdivision.The only way I know is hunting them with a .410 with a flashlight attached. And yes I've done it and hate the 11-4 am shift. One thing I did is set the sprinklers for a certain time and I could tell whether they came before or after watering and I narrowed the window down to about a two hours. There is no way to bait them..
I have a couple right now that I've been thinking about going after. They're making a mess of the beds next to the house.
I'm trying to envision this? Can you describe it a bit more?I get good kills with .22 LR
Have not found a USE for this: but 6" PVC vertical in the ground, if I do not put a cap on (it's for valve access) it will get one from time to time. If I put the bottom 1/4 of a Plastic drum over it, with one side propped up just a little bit... (don's ask), I had 2 stuck head down in there in one night...
Armadillos can jump and jump high if they choose to. The very first one I ever shot jumped nearly six feet into the air (near eye level). Since I was only a few feet away from him it startled the crap out of me. So, if there's a fence in the way, they may just jump over it..Drought here, so they are tearing up any irrigated yards and gardens...
If you don't water... It helps.
I've trapped 7 this year by placing trap next to fence where the game trail is... Also... A number of raccoons and possums.
Spreading the chicken wire over the ground and covering with soil... Didn't work for me... Spent a ton of time checking the fences for new holes and patching them... And still having trouble... Seemed like they were climbing the fence... Much easier to locate the place where they are coming through and place the trap there...
At my previous garden... I'd set the alarm... Get up and chase them with an axe... Worked on the dumb ones... When the dumb ones were gone... Life got hard.
They would run like a broken field runner... When I lit them up with flashlight and once out of light? They would freeze... Try lBaying the light on them then!
They blend in...
Some people have some luck with electric fencing...
