Even the game warden said it was not legal for any species of game yet this guy still goes out and hunts with the cannon!!! Shocked Plus he advertised it by putting a web page up of his kill... Sad

Wow, buckshot on the mega-scale! Ability to control collateral damage is limited.

Im sure the lads at your game department will have a field day with this plonker. now shooting cats with a mortar on private land sounds good, Ive often thought it would be handy to have one when trying to flush wallabies out of thick scrub. I bet this guy takes the cannon out and fills it with #4 shot and peppers the pond over the back too. poor ol ducks dont stand a chance.

Yes, bigger than the old punt guns that used to clear the pond of 30 ducks at a time.

You mean 300 ducks at a time don't you Jim?

Well itd Rolling Eyes it certainly wasn't one duck at a time with a full choke 12 gauge, try maybe a weapon like this ... check it out

Interesting! I saw a program on market hunting that said they used 3-4" guns in battery to kill entire flocks of waterfowl at night on the water. They were said to have sent the boat back some 20-30 yards and have capsized boats also upon discharge.

That's certainly not hunting...that's just killing...and badly. And he has the stones to call himself a hunter?

There is a very good description of punt guns and their use in James Michener's book "Chesapeake". Capsized boats, end-planking removal and burst barrels all were common!
