The .223 is what I'd like to use for control of excess woodchucks but, because of the nearby homes, its not safe to use. Failing that, see the pic for "the next best thing."

...I had to get control of the beast and 'release' it; (in the biblical sense).

She's an "Finnish Goshawk." I asked breeder, Vic Hardaswick of SD, to make her for me. She lived with her mother for 47 days, then, I took her. $3000, plus travel to SD. She flies at 34 1/4 oz. Very user friendly. I use her as my Falconry bird. So far, she's taken Cat, 2-woodchucks, just missed a Red Fox (lucky for her!) cotton tail bunnies, farm raised pheasants. She's not a pet. The only reason she returns to me is "for something to eat." Her name is "Ginger" after Sharron Stone, in the movie "Casino." ....a very beautiful, high-priced Hooker.....
Lots of fun, but, very demanding and time consuming.

The "silver canister" on her tail is a small transmitter, in case she gets lost. I carry the receiver in a sack, over my shoulder.
