What is your favorite gun to use when hunting state forests?

Game and varmint hunting. Deer stalking, hunting with hounds. Culling, hunting feral animals and vertebrate pest control.

Its only slightly used third Reich surplus. Uncle Herman moved here in 1946 from Argentina. And you fools! You going about hunting cute little bunny wabbits the wrong way. You use flamenwerffer ( flame thrower) when zey are still in their burrows . Liddle bunnies pre cooked . Ist good hunting ja?

That must have been the Hurtgen State Forest.

Yeah bigrich all compliant as far as I know safety all good no sharp edges no split timber on fork projectiles all bio-degradable can't back fire and
don't carry ammo in pouch until I shoot mighty dangerous to have one go off accidently big bruise along the thumb :thumbsup: :D
And the take five is now take twenty at my age takes 10 to focus on the fine print :thumbsup: :lol:

And yeah bladeracer I've heard of them being called a ''ging'' haven't seen mine for about 35yrs my eldest boy used to play with it
I made it when I was about 11-12 and i'm 64 now kept it all these years if the boys haven't lost it
I think she'd be stuffed by now but my youngest son has one and we use it now plenty of fun knocking tins over

I like my 65mm potato cannon.
3 cans hairspray or similar, some decent Kennebecs and a bbq igniter and “whoooomp”...100m plus range scares the sh*t out of most unsuspecting things.

*hse caveat. Tas does not condone or support the use of home made cannons that have the ability to...well...explode...
And besides - potatoes being fired over 100m renders them useless for chips and I do not support wasting food either.

No bigrich what would that permit come under ''feral animal'' ''exotic species'' or ''endangered species'' seeing as it's tin and most things today are plastic :? ;) :(
I suppose i'll have to get a permit for removing stones for ammo from the gravel pit as well :wtf: :shock: :?
Geez I thought I had it sorted and now I find i'm doing things illegally , god help me ! ( not sure he can help thought ) :thumbsup: :lol:
When will it ever end seems like we're gonna have to carry a bottle of Vaseline on our person to relieve the pain from the governments

i think i will go see my uncle "herman the german"( migrated here in 1946 from argentina ) and get a loan of his plinker mp40 sub machine gun for state forest hunting. the mg42 is too heavy to carry. it's great set up over a rabbit warren , but the ammo belts get caught up in the scrub. if i get lazy i could always find a game trail and set land mines . :lol:

DISCLAIMER- the above statement is intended as a joke and to p!ss off any spies on this site. have a nice day :D

I'd go the 100cal grenade launcher with lasso attachment, it's good for birds out too 1000km which will come in handy in a state forest.

Geez now bigrich you and bigfellascott are making me envious because we're no even allowed to have a dog in our state forests up here
nothing no hunting no shooting at all and signs everywhere saying '' Do not walk off track'' yet ferals everywhere and by night destroying crops
killing domestic animals you name it :shock: :roll:
Wish I had a ''Uncle Herman'' :thumbsup: :D :lol:
