      They are a bit old now but that's them, one got it the back of the head, got huge damage with bits missing everywhere, he jumped all over the place and needed bashing with a spade, the other got it in the chest and never twitched! So chest shooting is my fave now.

      Nicely done. There were a stack of these little critters last time I went west. It kept the wife entertained with the air rifle and the .22.

        There is an estimated 250,000 of them living under the Tasman Bridge in Hobart
        15 years ago I witnessed a Peregrine Falcon rip through a 'cloud' of them, awesome sight!

        I call it a cloud as the sky does darken when they are all out!

        I seem to remember a pest control officer gassing them, hit alot of pidgeons too
