Theoretically if someone was to go out and hunt dolphins, where would the most effective shot placement be?
would .50 beowulf be enough to go through water and still be lethal, or should they just use a spear?
For dolphin shooting you'll want to use a subsonic round as high speed rounds tend to break up on impact with the water or at least are seriously deflected, gas powered harpoon is the best dolpin hunting weapon I'd say but you know shooting dolphins would be more satisfying I feel, please post pictures of the result. As an offshore sailor I fucking hate dolphins.
Bow/spear/harpoon for hunting dolphins would probably be more effective than bullets. Unless you're shooting perpendicular to the water's surface your rounds are likely to disintegrate upon impact. Mybusters tested this. No comment on the subsonic rounds and their abilities to break the surface of the water at an angle. Also ricochets are entirely probably and likely shooting water at an angle.
bullets tends to shatter upon impact with water and will not penetrate far with much cohesion or power.
Nets would probably be the most effective, dragged between two surface vessels and herding a group to shallow waters, forcing them to beach themselves.
no need to get so angry, I know most people wouldn't think of hunting dolphins and I'm not doing it to be an asshole I just really can't help myself if I see a wild animal without any owner I'm filled with the urge to kill it
dolphins are mammals so I assume they have jugulars veins should I try and 'slit their throats' once on land or try and go for the heart I assume it's just one or two inches behind their flippers
>dolphins are mammals so I assume they have jugulars veins should I try and 'slit their throats' once on land or try and go for the heart I assume it's just one or two inches behind their flippers
hey man I'm just taking part here as a theoretical exercise, but the Japanese have this down to a science, I think they cut them up once they've been beached.

You should like dolphins, they save cocky fucks like you from drowning.
Dolphins are based as fuck.
If you treat them right you might even get to see their ra...love cave.
It's a big honour in dolphin society to take a trip to their love cave.
Dolphins are literally the worst fucking animals in the sea, they're like cats love to torture other animals amd they're just fucking show offs, fuck them.
Explosives do seem like a great idea, the pressure wave should be enough to kill them and if not at least rupture their swim bladder. If you could get something bigger than a seadoo, something that will createba decent wake so when they come to show off their little cunt tricks in your wake then fucking let off some charges and kill the fucks.
>they're like cats
atleast dolphins don't spread brain parasites that infected a large percentage of our population.
judging from your edge you're probably infected already, enjoy your schizophrenia.
>use hypersonic bullets
>make them little tips of needles
>now you have cavitation effect
>your bullet travels in vacuum
>very little resistance and friction
you have to adjust your aim tho for the refraction from surface.
I live in Florida and the dolphins around here are very friendly towards humans. I usually boat out until I find a pod of them. I use a 12 gauge slug when they get close to the surface to greet me. Very tasty creature, tastes kinda like Venison. Some bits taste like fatty bacon. Makes me hungry just thinking about it. I might go out this weekend.

well you eat animals for the sole reason of pleasing your tastebuds m8
hunters are retards
no difference in killing dolphins for no reason than any other animal
This is true, a dolphin raped my adoptive father to death in their underwater rape caves. All we could hear from the surface was his screams bubbling up from the deep, but by the time we got to him it was too late for even an open casket funeral.
Ok so this is what you do!
