Monkey Sniping

These nuisance animals need to be culled instead of allowed to take over vast swaths of our parks and recreational land here in Florida.
It would be a lot of fun, but I guess then I'm just mean.

Between the native species (I've seen a bear in the Ocala National Forest) and the imports (monkeys, pythons, etc) we could film a live action Jungle Book down there... Silver River is infested wtih invasives as well - lots of loricariid catfish (ie, the "sucker fish" you buy for your aquarium... but they get to be 18" long... which is why they end up in the river...)

Have cans will travel. If get a nusiance permit would take wife to South FL to visit family. Between Miami and Tampa/St Pete could dust some monkeys. Bet 147 grain 9mm hollow pounds and 45 acp Hornady Critical Defense or PMC Starfire would waste a monkey without anyone out of line of sight being none the wiser. Just roll em in the river to feed the fish or sell to exotic Asian restaurants.

Many of these monkeys are carriers of Herpes B and all other sorts of nasty diseases that are infectious to humans. Stay clear of these bustards, and exterminate with extreme prejudice.

I like how you guys roll, will have to hang around this room a little more often. Suddenly my Turkey Buzzard deterrence method has become high demand from neighbors in matter of days.

Note that trespassing in Florida with a weapon constitutes a felony as I remember someone having been convicted of such.

Yep, We are overrun with deer. Stupid woman down the road purposely feeds them. There's 10 point walking around and doesn't quite get it that his days are probably numbered by someone in the neighborhood that enjoys venison and has a bow this winter. Technically not allowed to use a firearm in the sub. More power to the guy that gets him. I really wish I ate venison as I'd have a freezer full come hunting season.

Shit I'd be offing damn monkeys with extreme prejudice.

Sounds like great sport to me. Get 6 guys and have bets for the first shot, biggest shot, and most shot. Then BBQ up some burgers and some beer.

I thought all invasive species were open season. But maybe not the pythons for some reason. I read they gave out permits for those. Thats just bad management.
