    Dear CPR,
    Since we are talking about deer hunting, I might as well show some informative pictures about skinning deer. You've been warned.

    ^ Nice knifework there. I'm impressed.

    As for the guns&ammo discussion, those pictures almost make it seem as if they used some sort of military-grade rifle. I'm thinking about a 7.62 mm sniper rifle, but I'm probably wrong.

    Of course, for real massive damage you could use a dedicated heavy sniper rifle, such as a .50 M82A1 Barret. With HE ammo.

    Age for getting a permit aside, aren't there age restrictions on actually owning a gun? If so, then baby getting a permit, not much of a big deal, now a baby getting a gun, that would be a big deal.

    Also, forgetting prefferences for a while Jakko, if a .223 Remington FMJ can stop a human, I'm pretty confident that a .223 Winchester HP will stop a deer.

    Thirdly, I don't disagree with hunting, as long as the animal is used (I.E. eaten), but shooting or rather blowing up prairie dogs with a full bore rifle is stupid, and I doubt they are going to eat them.

    about prairie dogs, i think they have the right to kill them because there would be too much of these animals otherwise...
    it's no less stupid to go there with heavy weaponry to play with animals' life though...

    Ranchers consider them an extreme nusiance animal because horses and cattle can break their legs stepping into the holes they dig. Wouldn't be so bad if they dug one or two surface holes, but their underground network of tunnels can span a large area with surface holes all over the place to help them avoid predators. Given their size, the ideal weapon to use would be a .22 long rifle. Cheap ammo, small bullet, small animal, minimal mess. Unfortunately because they are small and spook very easily it can be difficult to shoot them from close range...so some ranchers may switch to a scope mounted .223 rifle and shoot from further away.

    If ranchers open up their land to varmint hunters as a cheap way of helping eliminate their problem, the hunters may use god only knows what to shoot them because they see it as a sport rather than a matter of economical land management. This may sound kinda cold, but it isn't cost effective for a rancher to regularly use expensive high powered rifle ammo on small animals like this, but weekend sport hunters can and sometimes do. Which is how some people get exploding telephoto critter pictures. Regardless of what weapon an ammo is used though, dead is dead, and the animal did die quickly. Which to me seems preferable to seeing someone try to use a .22 rifle for a nice clean kill and manage to only wound the animal so it crawls back into it's hole to suffer and eventually die from shock and blood loss. Guess I'm just saying that the while the picture may be gore filled and distasteful to see, the result could be more humane for the animal than some of the alternatives.

    If its pest control its fine, but we don't know that in the video.

    Also, you can still shoot a target at a pretty good distance with .22 LR and if not, why not use .22 WM?
    A .223 magnum cartridge just seems cruel and a waste of money on such a small animal.
