Practice of using pneumatic and throwing weapons

In large cities, the immobilization of stray animals is carried out by professionals from various “special vehicles”. If a “stray” bear or elk appears on the Avenue, hunters are involved in this case. But they don’t usually play with air rifles, much less pistols or crossbows. And all these types of weapons have their own specifics, very different from firearms. In addition, they also need to have. It is no accident that in a number of localities official documents provide for the involvement of ordinary shooters-athletes, as a rule, “not lower than the master of sports”. Tell me, are there many of them in your city or village? And is everyone so eager to shoot from the” air ” on the moose? Yes, even for a clearly unhealthy large dog that occupied the courtyard of the kindergarten. Moreover, among renowned shooters for some reason most of the girls. And yet…

Among my friends there is one, it seems, and the shooter is excellent, and flaying-cutting does not shy away, but as for the actual hunting-no-no-principle!

Even if you do not have a ticket, but in the corresponding “party” all real shooters and hunters know that you are in any state from your “toy” stack one hundred percent of bullets or arrows in a 10-centimeter circle at a 50-meter distance. And also for a long time you are interested in the habits of animals, types and methods of hunting, you have repeatedly visited it, although you did not take a direct part. Consider the virtual ticket of the “humane hunter” in your pocket – if something happens, you will be invited, and then, you see, the police will thankfully shake the handle, if you save it from unusual functions.

In any case, a hunter with a gun and a police officer with a submachine gun will stand next to you as insurance. As well as a veterinarian. Otherwise it is impossible. And here’s why.

God forbid you from independent experiments with active substances. The choice of doses and types of drugs depending on the type and weight of the animal, even on the environment that can cause stress in it, is the prerogative of professionals. Moreover, to euthanize a domestic hawron and a wild pig of the same weight, you will need not just different volumes, but also different compositions in General, these creatures are so different. But you can kill easily, not only by making a mistake with the dosage of the composition that is not available in the open sale, but also by using some drugs that are freely sold in pharmacies. And if the weapons themselves, as well as “naked” syringes and Darts do not require any permission from the Ministry of internal Affairs, then trying to use them in equipped form outside the official field is a direct way to the dock.

In a similar company-a huntsman/hunter and a veterinarian-you will definitely find yourself in hunting grounds. It is also possible to get there only on the wave of your authority as a good shooter from exotic Pneumatics or crossbow. In the end, there is someone to take an example from:

In the photo, our GDP just immobilized a five-year-old tigress to put on a GPS collar. What’s worse for you?

In addition, there is remote vaccination of animals. And here Pneumatics with a crossbow is a serious competitor for firearms. The fact is that the cells of the vaccine strain when fired from a gun are often not viable – the temperature and other overloads are too high. This has been known for a long time, they invent “special” bullets, but all this is expensive and not available to everyone, and at short distances it is simply traumatic for the patients themselves.

An ever-increasing army of owners of unlicensed Pneumatics and “entertainment” arrowheads could well have vaccinated thousands of animals. At least the young, fortunately, it is quite crazy, nothing, unlike adults, is not afraid and is easily substituted for the shot.

Unfortunately, there is no vaccine for ASF (African swine fever) yet. Whether otherwise, it seems a good picture: instead of shooting tens of thousands of innocent forest pigs or their total death, thousands of “green” and other animal protectors with “airbows” and crossbows climb on their own – built towers at their own-created bait sites-and well, save the animals… this is, of course, fantastic. Which is a pity.
