    I may try this trick with a 10-foot section of sewer pipe... For that bear that keeps getting into my trash.

    That'd learn him.

    A local DID shoot one, out of aggravation, and got arrested. No, thanks.

    Sonic grenade boobytrap, maybe. Finding a bear turd on the spot would be rewarding.

    Squirrels out to 25+ yards don't stand a chance. QUIET, accurate, and more than enough power with proper shot placement.

    Or...get a good cat. Maine Coon should do.
  7. My first thought when I read the title of your post was "sure...just fire!"

  8. I sure have enjoyed reading all the comments and suggestions. Due to city codes, it appears I will have to revert back to using some kind of live trap or try one of the drowning methods mentioned here.

    The weather is turning colder which has decreased their activity and their destruction of my deck...for now.
    I hope to provide an update as I move forward with Operation Dinner Invitation.
