Shotguns will fix that problem. They will learn quickly to find somewhere else to go.

My thoughts exactly, a shotgun, or a baseball bat. . . . .

Postal service/ government workers under worked over paid and any excuse not to put in a days work. As a Wildlife photographer/enthusias​t I have been dive bombed a few time and never been hit.

I would think that there is a much simpler way to discourage the critters other than killing them.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

I guess I just assumed that you wern't going to just poke the critter in the ribs with the bat. :)

Wow, Shotguns and bats, Can't see that at all, they would make some great shots, if you want to scare them off, just point a big white lens their way, that will always work!
Great post Ian, thanks!

Now,Now you can't go around threatening people with shotguns and bats because they don't want the hawks, Uh you did mean the neighbors right?
