This photo may look somewhat familiar as over the years I've posted similar pics of these pesky buggers undermining my garage. This one met his end @ 25 yds by a 44cal, 200g XTP launched at 1700fps by 32g of H110, CCI 350 primer in a * case out of an early Pasadena Auto Mag Pistol. This bullet seems a bit too frangible to use on deer -sized game.

There used to be huntable numbers of them here in WNY until about 20yrs ago. There were great opportunities to stalk, shoot and pistolara them or to test your long range wind doping and distance estimation abilities out to 700yds or so. I even picked up a military optical range finder at a sportsman show for $35.00(seller must have thought it was broken, but it was accurate to 4 miles...looked like a bazooka). This was pre-laser, light and compact Range finder technology. Farmers invited us to thin them out. It was fun and great practice...like a picnic .
