I highly doubt you can kill a hawk that is killing your chickens since birds of prey are protected by Federal law and killing hawks gets real expensive real quick. Since the state may not over ride federal law and allow something that is illegal under federal law or jurisdiction. Because of that, I don't believe you state will allow you to kill hawks. The only chance would be a joint state/federal depredation permit which the feds are not very liberal with. Yes I will give you that is illegal crap, because it is! BTW, the federal fines are not less than the cost of your chickens. Additionally, shooting up in the air at hawks with a high powered rifle ...Deleted by CalHunter... irresponsible and I am positive your Game department didn't give you the go ahead on that. ...Deleted by CalHunter...
