Default Feral Cats...

This may rub some the wrong way.... But... We all kill the coyote cause he devastates our game animals... But how do you all feel about feral cats which cause just as much, or if not moredamage to the pheasants and the quail.

They are very bad on small game and have no business wandering all over the place.If i catch or see one that I know does not belong where it is at, it is a dead kitty.

I grew up on the farm and we always had cats around, but I think that cats are like rabbits because they can multiply real fast so about twice a year my dad and I would have to go out and thin the herd. Last fathers day I bought him a 22 revolver, he was so excited because the cats had learned when he went outside with the rifle to run under the shed. Now when he goes outside he just puts it in his back pocket and pulls it when needed.

I usually leave them alone around barns and out buildings but they had better not come to the call,because they then become a predator and a very efficent hunter and end up not going back to the barn or out buildings,I used to not beleive they killed as many animals and birds as they actually do,but my little girl has a outside cat that gets fed very well twice daily with food that sometimes sits on the porch rail overnight because she isn't hungry,but it isn't many days that go by that she doesn't kill a bird or mole or mouse,because she is a natural predator.I dont beleive in shooting someones pets but theferal cat is a never ending problem all over the U.S. they multiply rapidly and can survive on there own very well.LET THE FUR FLY!! MEOW!

Thats the way I feel and me and the wife got in a pretty heated arguement over this.. Because I was in the deer stand and I stuck one to the ground with my bow... I should have never told her... but you guys have backed me up pretty well...

Thanks

Indiana doesn't allow you to shoot domestic animals unless they're causing damage to your property. Once on my property they're in violation of both the state and county leash laws, the only reason they come here is the bunnys I've been cultivating for four years and consider a valuable asset to my property, which makes them fair game and possum chow in the making.There's a black and white one that skulks my land occasionally, and he's already had his one warning shot, next time it's the turkey choke/7.5s and no sympathy.

Feral cat = dead cat by penetrating trauma in my book. I've seen the damage they can cause to wildlife.

Cat with a collar = live cat that can walk away and live out the rest of its 9 lives.

I couldn't bring myself to it. I don't even know if I could kill a bobcat if I saw one. Trap and relocate if they are that bad of a problem. If they are killing mice and other rodents, why bother with them.
