Is this a case of bows being too weak or the opossum being completely hardcore? If the latter, how do we weaponize them?
This is a case of either an edgy faggot or a young kid that doesn't know any better. Those heads are for target shooting. Even a direct heart shot wouldn't necessarily kill instantly. If hunting or controlling pests you need at least basic fucking broad head arrows or bolts
Bow scene is absolutely riddled with edgy little crotchspawns. There's every indication that the shooter was some middle schooler with a $50 bow he got from the local Academy and decided to kill shit with his fiberglass target arrows.
>target arrows for hunting
Almost sounded like you were talking about something else.
I only know one person who bow hunts, and he uses some nasty looking arrowheads for that.
These look like the arrowheads that my 10 year old cousins use for targets in their back yard.
>The overgrown rat grabbing the arrow in it's chest like it's gonna do something about it.
Sometimes you have to do pest control.
In this particular case that little shit should have just smashed it with a baseball bat instead of trying to play fucking Turok the Possum Hunter with a toy bow.
What kind of a pussy can't finish an animal off AFTER wounding it that badly? It sure the fuck didn't scurry off faster than he could have run up and killed it with a stick.
Whatever single mom raised this little shit didn't teach him anything about humanely killing pest animals. My old man told me the first time we hunted squirrels "If you have to kill an animal you have to make it quick. If you can't then don't."
All vermin are surprisingly tough. Coons especially.
And field points are fucking fine, you autists. Why waste a broadhead?
Maybe a judo point to just blunt force it in the head.
It is pest removal. Small animals have shitty, short, brutal lives. Life is harsh. Get over it.
It's an opossum, the worst thing they carry is fleas, their body temperature is too low for basically any disease to be carried by them so even the louse are clean
Them taking up roost around your property also tends to deter more damaging and disease ridden pests like raccoons and fucking cats
That being said, I wouldn't have paid to have it saved
I agree man. I had one as a pet for a few yrs. Got it when it was small enough to fit in a coffee mug. Because of that animal, I ended up becoming a veterinarian.
If you bath them weekly, their fur becomes extremely soft and fluffy, kinda like a cats. Becomes a giant cat - rat that will eat any thing you feed it mostly.
Opossums very rarely carry rabies because of their unusually low (for mammals) body temperatures. However, they are known to carry diseases like leptospirosis, tuberculosis, relapsing fever, tularemia, spotted fever, toxoplasmosis, coccidiosis, and trichomoniasis.
>having a dog who can't remove opossum
Do you even pest control? My Dane has killed 8 of them so far.
One moved into her dog house one night and she slept outside. Ever since then she's had a hateboner for those things.
>fenced in back yard
>2 outside cats: strays we effectively tamed
>possum regularly visits at night
>walk outside one night possum on back porch
>doesn't realize I'm there
>start talking to it
>it just stands there for like three minutes
>been talking to it steadily the whole time
>finally freaks out and runs away
I have no problem with them, and my outside cats seem to just be confused by it like "Who the hell are you?"
Yea bro, it's also not 1820 anymore, we have a basic anti biotics regiment for it not to mention the reason it tends to kill whole families is because the families are the ones cleaning up all his diseased fluids
HE A GUD CRITTER, HE DINDU NUFFIN! #verminlivesmatter
Fuck off, I kill vermin with trash aluminum shafted shit so I don't care if the arrow gets trashed. I save broadheads and carbon for actual game animals.
It isn't illegal to use field points on non game species. Critters are not game species.
I do kill everything I shoot.
Opossums have a remarkably robust immune system, and show partial or total immunity to the venom of rattlesnakes, cottonmouths, and other pit vipers. Opossums are about eight times less likely to carry rabies than wild dogs, and about one in eight hundred opossums is infected with this virus.
>1 In 800 infected
Have you ever considered actually buying arrows that
A) Are of decent quality and won't get trashed if you shoot a varmint with them
B) Have a nonshit arrowhead so that it will actually kill your game and not give it the very likely capacity to wander off with one of your arrows?
These are very basic things any aspiring bow hunter should know, and they will serve you well when you grow up and actually get into big boy hunting.
This is a case of a dumbass (like >>28654211 said, probably an edgy faggot or kid) shooting an animal with a low-draw-weight bow with field points.
If a 40lb compound bow can through-and-through a deer at 40y with a broadhead I'm guessing that possum was shot with something recurve in the 15-20lb range, AKA a child's toy bow.
Also, possums are hard as fuck to kill.
>not just konking it over the head and getting it over with
Have you actually tried braining a possum? They have a tiny fucking brain in a very thick skull. I smashed one up with a shillelagh/walking stick and had to beat it into a literal blood smear before it actually died. Felt horrible having to whack on it for like 10 minutes.
This. I hit an Opossum in the head with my car doing about 50mph once. It spun around in the air about a dozen times along side the car's passenger side window. I reversed the car to see it, and my friend and I could not stop laughing as it waddled into the woods, turning around to grit it's teeth at us every once in a while. We nearly pissed our pants it was so funny, but yeah, those fuckers are tough.
I have lots of nice arrows, you mong. Carbon shafts shatter and split easily when they pass through something and hit a rock/tree/etc. I have shot through deer and had my arrow get mangled from a rock impact.
Why waste good arrows? Aluminums are cheap, get the job done, and I don't give a fuck if they break or get lost in the brush.
It isn't worth wasting broadheads on vermin. The instant mortality of something I loathe is not worth any amount of $$ to me. Field points kill them fine. I use judos for squirrels and shit that I plan to eat, and several variations of broadhead on large game.
I take 3-4 deer a year in bow season alone.
My dad's friend saved a baby one off the side of the road that was clinging to it's dead mother. To this day he keeps it roaming around his house and it comes up to you like a dog would. Loves to be pet. It makes me feel like a faggot to say that I find it to be quite lovable.
>9/10 would snuggle in bed with
The form most possums suffer from doesn't mature to the standard coughing up blood and doesn't present the same airborne pathogen qualities as with advanced TB in humans, it's primarily blood borne and only really presents a danger in shared food or violent contact.

The only reason any animal would even kill it's prey before eating it is to make it easier to eat and a kitten is already easy enough to eat as is. Don't hate the opossum nigga, hate the game.
They have tiny little brains, I know that much.

Because, moron, a clean kill is good ethics and good fieldcraft. It doesn't matter if its a Kobe beef cow or a diseased plague rat, you kill it quick and you kill it clean.
You sound like some Newport smoking white trash trailer dweller, with a dead car in the front yard and a dozen trash cans full of empty beer cans in the back yard.
My experience is that possums come equipped with litterbox training as standard equipment. I got invaded by 3 baby possums once, they stayed behind my file cabinet for about a week. Every night they would come out to eat cat food, drink cat water, and use the cat box. Then they would troop back behind the file cabinet. My cat, who outweighed all three combined, would just sit there and watch them.
Well, for that matter, I would just sit there and watch them. Guess I can't blame the cat for following my lead. I'm a horrible role model for animals.
Possums are fucking almost invincible.
One of my first memories is going out to our barn, and watching my dad try to kill this possum with a hay-fork.
He had this thing back into the corner and probably stabbed it a good twenty times with the hay-fork, the possum was biting at the tines and jumping at him the whole time. he completely impaled the thing and pinned to the wall a few times too.
Then, my dad backed off because he was getting tired, and the fucking possum just jumped out and ran passed him, out the back door. I bet the fucking thing lived another 30 years too.
I know this is bait but its too temping to pass.
>not killing varmints
>making varmints someone else's problem
>letting a varmint make more varmints
Its like you are a tree hugging hippie or something.
Bitch please when our hero of /k/ was alive he told us how he beat a possum to death with a baseball bat 26 times or more then just laughing his ass off about it.
Never cleaned his baseball bat from what I heard about but no matter hes dead.
Stupid fucking retards it wasn't ivan that did that you jumble of fucking morons it was melee guy that did that fuck man.
Besides melee guy is sick enough to actually do that shit anyway.
Trying to reason or argue with the human trash that posts on this board is a futile effort. Such people only understand force, which is why we have laws and which is why laws continue to expand.
I don't particularly like government intrusion but the truth is it's necessary to keep the degenerates and immoral in line so my general opinion is starting to favor it more and more.
Possums are hardcore. I hit one in the head with a 2x4 at least two dozen times so it would go on and my dog wouldn't kill it. Not that I mind if she kills them, just didn't want to fuck with it at 2am when I was letting her out.
This so much.
I live in Australia where foxes are a really big problem due to being an introduced species.
I generally just trap them and release them on my neighbours property.
He runs lambs and chooks so the foxes usually get plenty to eat if they are tricky enough
I had two baby possums as pets.
Those are the creepiest, weirdest, most inverted fucking animals ever. They never bit me, but they always watched me. Like hawks. I moved, their eyes moved. And I call total bullshit on the nocturnal thing. Those fuckers never slept. They also shit all over everything.
They can't carry rabies, though. Leprosy, I think. But no rabies.
>harass my dog
get a dog that isn't a little bitch then
What a waste of resources. Opossums can only live for about 2 years anyways because their bodies never evolved the ability to age properly.
>Fucking around with opossums
Fuckers don't die. I don't know what it is about em but they're just bad ass motherfuckers. They don't feel pain, or seem completely immune to it somehow.
I have em all the time out here pestering my dogs and fucking with my trash. Coons too.
I went through a damn quart of anti-freeze in a month and about 30 of the damn bastards but more would still come. I laid out little squirrel traps and chained em to a heavy tire so the thing would scream all night and drive the rest of em off.
It worked but killing him in the morning was a pain. They could eat 22lr like it was nothing. Just scream some more. Ended up using a 000 buck and just blowing it to bits and bleaching it when I was done.
Grisly business, but no more critters.
Possums aren't bad. They're big, slow, garbage-eating rats. You can totally confound them with bungee cords. I've lived around the things all my life and they're slightly higher on my threat list than fungus.

Leprosy is from armadillos, not possums.
This. They're mammalian cockroaches. R-selector as fuck, produce a fuckton of disposable offspring and eat whatever happens to drift down the food chain to them. They're also about as dangerous as cockroaches.
Imagine that animals are guns. Possums wouldn't even be HiPoints. They'd be WWII Liberators at best. Made as quickly as possible from the shittiest materials available and just spammed every the fuck where. I'm actually surprised they evolved fur and not just natural cryoprotectants.
Nah, like all animals, there are cute ones and ugly ones.

Well he spoke about how he strangled one ti death by just gripping the neck really hard while it was shaking and hissing and just to top it off he bashed the head with his fists before even considering using a fucking rock.
The fucker had all tools to use and he desides to use a random rock instead.
Said that he didn't bother washing off for two days and a half because he forgot to pay the water bills but this was on /b/.
two rounds of 9mm will fuck up any coon's day
FMJ 115 gr even. The exit was nasty as fuck through it's hind-quarters, probably 1.5x diameter. Second shot vitals and then a quick thrashing from the dog and he had 10 seconds of life left. Went pretty quick.
>antman wasn't crazy he dindu nuffin!
He was certainly sadistic as hell.
Eh, I used to do a lot of really fucked up shit when I was a kid because life was so traumatic and extending the violence forward to other entities helped, I guess. I honestly couldn't control it for a little while.
Trap cat in a beer box when I was a kid.
It's like not flipping out just sitting there chilling. Take this canister it's full of what I think is water. You scratched me for the last time fucker.
Pour the water on it, water smells weird. It's fucking elder berry flower juice. Sticky as fuck. The cat is now going ballistic manages to get out.
I do wonder how it got all of it off. That shit was like concentrated syrup.
So it was one of those shitty Chink-via-Amazon 20lb crossbows.
Point still stands. Anything over 35-40lbs will through-and-through a deer, not half-penetrate a 6lb possum.
In fact, the fact that it WAS a 15-20lb CROSSBOW is even more fucked up and retarded. The shitty little pistol crossbows are still like 50lbs.
Vidor. That's how you spell it.

Small brain that is well armored. Primitive, redundant nervous system with good armoring along the spinal cord. Adrenaline glands the size of those found in large-breed dogs. Bones that are extremely dense and durable for its size.
They're literally designed to get the shit beat out of them regularly (both by other animals and from being clumsy fuckers and falling out of trees going after bird eggs) and survive.
Does not matter if its a possum, cat, dog, etc. SHit like this should be punishable BIG TIME. and its shit like this that will lead to weapons being banned more and more as people see weapon owners as disgusting animals. Quit thinking this shit is cool you edgy fucking kids its not. Grow up.
This is a case where some numb nuts tried using field tips instead of broad heads because whoever was hunting this thing was an utter retard.
Also, he was using crossbow bolts.
So that's possibly 75-200lbs worth force, assuming he was using a crossbow.
I really wish I could find the retard who shot that crossbow and slap them with the opossum.
Why are people so retarded using field tips to shoot at animals?
I mean, I don't advocate shooting a dog or cat, maybe even opossums, but it's twice as bad that they're so retarded they couldn't determine the deference between broadheads and field tips.
Antman broke frogs legs and left them to be devoured by ants on an anthill. He also killed kittens in various ways. He would deny mental illness and get mad if you called him crazy.
For those of you who know, didn't he say he had some tumor in his brain or something?
This happened a while back.

Ithink you need to re read his post he obviously say coon is especially tough compared to another critter.
He either claim racon is tougher than possum or mistakely use coon as short for possum.
Regardless tommy know nothing detected.
Also most likey you are him fucking samefagging
Anyone who had trouble with the killing power of the M4 was actually having trouble with their own personal accuracy.
Short of that tungsten core copper driving band M249 ammo.
None of my Joes who were dialed in killers ever had any trouble, even at ranges where you're using the bottom of the ACOG's stadia.
Funny thing is gramps says the same thing about the .30 Carbine, that it'd still kill a commie through a great coat at any range you could expect a hit
I never used m855 to kill anything. But if i going to use 223/5.56 i would use either 55gr or 77hr otm sometimes 69smk
But i always stick to my trusty L1A1 which have already killed quite amount of hogs and rabbits.
Regardless out of fragments range m855 icepick this is fact.

>ITT: field points are for killing hay bales, not possums the thread
possums are disease filled rodents that live at max 4 years. Outside of thier native environment, IE "not where people are", they are vermin.
this is why librulz shouldn't be veterinarians; the massive hypocrisy that dogs have a 50%+ kill rate, wild cats have effectively a 100% kill rate, yet rather than killing this literal tree rat "humanely" some brain dead woman veterinarian probably removed the bolts, patched it up, then went back to euthanizing unwanted puppies.
also it was shot with a crossbow; arrows look about 23", have 4 fletching, and no knocks.
Are you going to prove yourself, Cletus, or are you just going to keep using ad hominems?
Come on, bait lord, show me what you got.
Or are you just going to try and intimidate me by calling me an autist when you can't even spell actual correctly.

we need nationality flags on /k/ because of shitcunts like you. try a bat, not a stick next time idiot.
but whoever shot this vermin should have bought a trap. if it was residential (probably) he should have done the ole fashioned dunk the live trap (don't want a dumb kid/dog/cat to walk into a small game trap and break an ankle or hand) in a water barrel until the struggling stops school of what animal control does to worthless shit like possums when people are too pussy/10 to do it themselves.
they're disgusting giant rats that shit themselves and play dead when they're scared, carry diseases, eat trash, and are a general nuisance, and anyone in their right mind that catches them on their property would ventilate them.
thats the brain parasites talking anon
>deh outside cats dey dindu nuffin collars will make them stuck don't you dare kill muh ferals
protip: your local county park probably wants to burn your house down. idiots like you and your invasive species decimate local small animal populations and destroy local ecosystems. If you care about animals, kill all your shitty fucking cats.
>not joining the cage trap, drowning barrel masterrace
I've had to deal with 5 or 6 Gordon Freeman style. There's still that last one in the litter or group or whatever; it's different. It's smart enough to run away from me, while all the others weren't. For the past...three months? Maybe four? It's been the one that got away.
>it was shot with a crossbow; arrows look about 23", have 4 fletching, and no knocks.
I'm counting 3 fletches, about 18-19", and very clearly has nocks. Only thing you got right is the crossbow part.
buy a leg trap off harbor freight and stake it near your trash so you can brain him like his kin.
before it breeds and passes it's ability to not have the autonomous function of "fainting" on to a generation of hypergiggatreenigger9000s that will be a pain in the ass to cull.
No, I verified it's too stupid to do that. Was barbecuing and chopping some stuff on a board when I realized it just walked past my feet before watching it climb up the side of the wall. They're...not very bright, even this 'genius' who realizes running is the right thing to do with humans that noticed it.
This thread makes me a little relieved about my possum killing experience. I got drunk with my best buddy in high school in my backyard when I was 17 and found two trying to eat the goldfish out of our pond when we were in the process of draining it. It took ten minutes of intense hand to hand combat to take them down, one can only wonder what our neighbors thought if they saw two high schoolers slamming possums with 40 pound slabs of limestone and them living.
I never knew possums had a battle cry.
Pic related, buddy with our kills after a 30 pack of Budweiser and some whataburger.
they removed the killy killy part from antifreeze cuz muhchillunz. 30 years ago it'd be a good go to as long as you don't have a dog that'd eat it first.
cage traps work too, but are "humane" in that it's harder to kill them after without getting them out of the trap, drowning them, shooting them, or giving them to animal control so animal control can drown/freeze them out of eyeshot because housewives want to pretend they go to a farm upstate.
God damnit, I hate stupid liberals. If they got to kill them, they got to kill them - every other option will just bring the places closer to shutting down due to finances going under.
>not letting them fight to the death

It's like you don't even know how to manipulate nature
Don't get me started. We really should bring back the chair for death sentences. It'd cost the taxpayers literally a nickle or less a pop instead of the insane huge bucks that could go to a hospital or something, but are wasted on lethal injection after lethal injection. These fucktards forget that these are people who have done things so heinous and wrong that they've been deemed undeserving of life. It's complete idiocy to worry about their 'suffering' at this point. This reminds me though.
Think a cattle prod turned all the way up will kill one of these?
>We really should bring back the chair for death sentences. It'd cost the taxpayers literally a nickle or less
you misspelled "firing squad"
but for vets nitrogen chambers work well for the animals we like but not enough to adopt. For shit like wounded possums and raccoons most animal control outfits are fine with the ole fashioned drowning trough.
so is carbon monoxide poisoning. you just pass out when the oxygen mix gets too low and then suffocate. it's not about HOW they're killing, its THAT they're killing but just like with gun control it's a death of a thousand cuts thing.
idiots find out that their local county shelter has to kill unwanted dogs/cats due to being a 2000sq ft building with a vet and student volunteers in it and not the magical farm upstate they formerly thought all stray dogs went to when they weren't adopted, then rather than doing something like actually adopt the mutts they demand someone (else) do something and that _____ method of killing is "inhumane" and then when the shelter goes to _____ method instead thats also "Inhumane!" so they REEEEEE in righteous hypocrisy until A. nothing happens or B. the shelter is forced to close/scale back due to lack of funding and the animals go to a different shelter (that kills at a higher percentage rate usually) and the Bored Soccermoms have "saved" the animals.
fuck that, firing squad. spend 600 bucks on a rifle and another 700 on ammo and you're set for a decade of executions. I do wish more states had different methods so the person could choose how they like to go. me personally, I hate needles and I couldn't comply with lethal injection, I know it would be a problem. I'd much rather go out via firing squad but apparently we have to be "humane"
also weaponized possums and badgers are a good idea, those things will rip your throat out, shit down your neck and wait for you to die, then use your innards as a pillow
yeah but then you gotta sharpen the blade. I still think firing squad is the best, a .223 from a remington 700 can get the job done easily and for cheap, and just about any fucking idiot can do it.
They were in cahoots. The small one was following the large one and even tried to defend it as we curb stomped away. In the large one's final hour, it played dead and tried to crawl away while we were chasing the small one and my Aussie noticed it. Damn thing would've gotten away if it weren't for my old pupper alerting us, miss that old hound like nobody's business.
Trust me I'd have preferred a cage fight but those two were working together.
southwestfag here. we don't have possums, we have coyotes. those things are assholes and imo pests, but everyone thinks that "they're just pretty much feral dogs, you can't shoot them"
i say fuck that, do my best to shoot the alphas in their little groups so they don't breed. also, a .410 will do a number on a yote's skull.
sometimes one or more of them don't work, so you could be awake but paralysed and waiting around for your heart to stop

heh, I got 88 and you got 99, witnessed
I don't know why they think that. coyotes are nowhere near our snuggly pupper friends. they are disgusting vermin but hey if it looks kinda like a pet, liberals will get up in arms to save it.
But Anon this runs the risk of innocent children being shot by the firing squad.
What if a school buss passes in front of them or a bullet flies off course and kills a bunch of children in a school?
I saw a documentary on it, it's kinda fucked up. granted those who get the death penalty should suffer for what they've done, but to think that a process that is a "60% of the time, it works every time" kinda thing is sad. just bring back ol sparky and the firing squad and get these fuckers on a conveyor belt and we can solve prison overcrowding pretty fucking quick.
yup, I've seen it. but when someone goes "well I can fix that problem" via traps or just shooting them "oh no you can't hurt them they're just innocent animals" sometimes I think the things that need extermination are those people.
I've seen that happen too, and it was pretty fucking funny (at least to me). not everything deserves to live and a lot of things need to be left the fuck alone but some people don't/can't realize that
Coyotes should be left alone if they're not causing any trouble, particularly in areas near cities.
We killed all the wolves over the past 200 years and now deer and rabbits overpopulate.
I only shoot yotes if they're a problem for farmers or they eat quail/pheasant eggs, mainly because in Texas quail and pheasant populations are suffering from our drought a couple years ago.
Randomly smoking yotes in areas with feral hogs is pretty much inviting a problem that's far worse on your property.
or do like the ukrainian (SS) did and have one guy with a walther model 7 shoot people in the back of the head in a red room with a drain. Open casket funerals and everything.
Or for something more uniform

like old sparky without all the bullshit. if you can kill cattle with it you sure as shit can kill a person
A firing squad for...how much is .223 Rem, .30-06 or .308 Win going for a pop? And there's several of the guys firing at once too. First anon is definitely right about the libs. These people are so sheltered in their perfect, happy little lives they don't think anymore about the big picture, how reality really is or what's going to happen down the road. It's disgusting.
Well, maybe buying in bulk would mitigate the pricing, but you still have to deal with getting several volunteers for it and any mental luggage they may have from it.
That's...even more thrifty than the chair or bullets. But the bad rap just won't cut it. No pun intended. As for the 'looking good' part with the career politician libs, anyone with two brain cells can figure out how it's actually really stupid. Damn shame a lot of random libs only have one. I do have to point out that animal testing labs use some sort of guillotine for certain animals though. That's the right way to do it provided they're not the type that are big and keep flopping around afterwards.

now to solve the "it takes 30 years to execute someone because our law code is fucked, the police are terrible at solving crimes, and real mass murderers get to skate for decades filing appeals because the arresting officers former partner in a different department didn't dot an i"
