Legally no Pat. I donít recommend that anybody break the law. However , if I was raising chickens and a hawk was getting them........
It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

For me, when I set up a target at the far side of the pond and shooting from the hill is about 300 yds. My 22 mag will need to be adjusted as wind dictates. And sometimes will fall shot of the target and the bullet will hit the water. smile There is a shooter here that has a really nice rifle to shoot hogs and such, might work well here.
Do not judge me by the politicians in my City, State or Federal Government.
Thank The Good Lord the government in Washington DC gets little done.
Outlawing guns will make a lot of us down here in the South

If you feel threatened by a racoon, fox, coyote, or ground hog you are allowed to take it. You are allowed to have a varmint gun at hand and not locked up as long as it is un loaded. Ammo/clip stored or hidden. All other guns must be locked weather with a trigger lock or in a safe. Ammo must be locked up as well.

Cheers Don.

When I got my permit they quit showing up. They are not that smart so I attributed it good pond management.
