When putting down an animal what weapon do you use to do so?
Do you use your firearm or do you use a random tool when say putting down a horse or chicken?
Whenever I go to kill a chicken for dinner I just grab the head and just twist and twhirl it like a corkscrew until the neck is winded up enough for me to just "yank"off the head and it just goes "pop"
More efficient and effective instead of just chopping off the head but anyway if you had to put down an animal what would /k/ use?
Why do you say that?
I'm perfectly normal and healthy so I don't see why you would thing I need help of any kind friend.
What it's perfectly normal to kill a chicken for food.
My family has been puttind down chicken and cows whenever it comes to food in the past history.
I don't see what is the difference between your view and my view.
I like the 22lr as well so what firearm do you use to put down the animal?
Thank you for being understanding.
To put down a cow its harder for i need to make if bleed b4 it dies.
That means going all the way to get an animal stunning rod and and getting the cow hanging or a hook.
Then cut the troat and wait.
The easiest way for chickens to me is find a heavy countertop and pick them up and slam their head down on the countertop in a controlled vertical motion. It's fast, painless for them, and I don't need any fancy hardware. And I don't have to hear them suffer.
If I had to kill a horse, since they are fucking beautiful magestic creatures I would probably go big to guarantee they went out in one go at it. Like 20 gauge slug to the brain while tears are rolling down my face.
For a dog or anything smaller like 38 special to the brain.
That's how my mom use to do it and grandma. But I found out a small club to the back of the head works good enough , just like taking out a rabit , or you can do it the way to drain almost all the blood which is pet the chicken , calm it down and have it on its back then slit ita throat. Keep it up side down to drain all the blood then pick the feathers out and shit.
A couple years ago I used my Winchester 1894 to shoot my Mexican trailer trash neighbor's dogs because they wouldn't stop harrasing my cattle. I learned that .30-30 is way too big for dogs
>Implying cutting off the head isnt the best.
>Implying pointblank through a tough skull wont shread the brain while contaning the slug.
What was that you're mad because I know what I'm talking about?
When the chipmunks were invading our foundation while I was growing up we'd catch them in a trap. If my sister was home we'd go release them in the nearest state park. If it was just me and my dad we'd toss them into a trash can full of water and drown them.
A couple times while my dad and I were bird hunting the dog managed to catch a pheasant himself before flushing it. He'd bring it to my dad, who would wring its neck like you described for a chicken. Hooray for not having to pick shot out of the breast.
Friend of a friend killed an opossum by cutting off its head with a shovel when he caught it in a Havahart trap.
When my girlfriend raised rabbits she'd raise them in a hutch indoors. When it came time to process them she'd put them in the grass outside, which would make them stop moving around since they'd never felt grass before; then she'd pop them in the head point-blank with a .22 and then clean them.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that it all depends on the animal and the circumstances.
What I usually do is grab it, hang it upside down with wire, and slit the throat and let it just bleed. Since both of my grandparenta are evangelical bible thumpers, they prefer to kill it as halal
>Dad tells me about when he had to put one of the cats down like 25 years ago
>the cat was already dying
>he had a .22 against its head
>he pulled it away so the barrel wasn't flush but the cat moved it's head as he fired
>basically scraped side of cats head
>cat takes off and runs into fence and flails around for a minute and dies
>said mom around the corner asked "did you it?"
>NO NO HUN STAY OVER THERE
>mfw all this
and he has 1 eye now and wants to carry
But when he was young and has both eyes he couldn't shoot a cat in the head
>cousin out feeding the chickens
>punk ass rooster with boundary issues attacks the back of his leg
>cousin is sick of his shit
>turns around and punts him halfway across the chicken yard
>finishes feeding the chickens
>goes to check on the rooster
>cousin picks it up and starts plucking it on the way back to the house
>halfway there cousin finds out he'd make a poor doctor
>rooster panics and flaps out of his hands
>struts off a little bit less cockily
>never attacks anyone else again
Not the same anon, but my butcher removes moo with just a .22 magnum rifle. Obviously it's different than .22lr like anon said, but it's really not a .308 hah
Source, fucking farm man!
Chickens are easy - capture one while its feeding with a landing net.
Stuff it into a gallon milk jug with the top and bottom cut off.
Hang it upside down.
Relaxes and goes to sleep. (this is key for 2 reasons: less lactic acid in muscles for better meat, and easier to pluck feathers)
Open mouth, cut through back of head / neck with filet knife.
Cut off head with pruning shears, let bleed out into bucket.
Optional - mount head on car antenna, secure with with zip tie.
Start conversations with psycho chicks.
> If it was just me and my dad we'd toss them into a trash can full of water and drown them.
I have absolutely no concerns about OP's chicken-whirling, its a pretty effective old-fashioned way to kill a chicken.
But you? You're a cunt. Drowning is one of the most agonizing ways to die imaginable, and I can only hope you were ignorant of that fact.
if you've got to kill off rodents, put them in a tupperware box, and put it in the freezer. they'll get cold rapidly, and fall asleep. after an hour or two, they freeze. Hypothermia is painless, you get woozy, stop thinking clearly, and then sleepy. in fact you start forgetting its cold, and almost feel warm and cosy as you drift out.
Its a humane way to kill them. Drowning, however? that's fucking evil.
I guess you can say he's "antsy" about his lifestyle
I've worked the farm for a short while, and own a bit of stock too, which I usually butcher myself.
Tried a gun like twice. Didn't like it.
Personally I always slit their throats, even the chickens. Got a special thick ass knife for that, and a couple smaller ones for skinning and de-organizing (see what I did there?)
Although I have been meaning to try the neck snapping technique after having recently heard about it. Sounds pretty convenient.
Yeah he killed alot of things when he was a young kid
He just lets the ants do the final kill now ever since he grew up
Once I caught two mice in a trap one was dead, but the other was alive the dead one was given a viking's funeral, the other was blown away.
When my paw was little he had an after school job at the butcher shop shooting cows in the head with a .22lr. That's how they killed them were we are from.
Chickens they used a cleaver to cut the head off but my great grandma used to just swing them between her legs by their head and it would pop off.
I think they got special tools for these kind of things.
Man, raising chickens for food and slaughtering them is great, I do 200 meat bird a year. I think it's the way you kill your birds that people are questioning, and the way you describe the way you do it.
To answer your question I dispatched the animal with a 9mm or a 556 they both work fine. I did have a 9mm ricochet off a pigs skull but the second did the trick.
