I know someone who recently bought a high powered pellet riffle with a scope that shoots rounds comparable to .22mm bullets. This is why he bought the gun; He and his buddies set out “bait” for seagulls, then shoot and kill the birds from an upstairs window, for fun.
Do you guys and gals have any thoughts about that?

Tastes like Chicken.
Hopefully they clean up the carcasses. I'm not too fond of dead things stinking up my beach. I personally don't have any problems with a little population control but there is always the grey area between killing for pleasure rather than killing for consumption. My brothers and I have eaten a variety of game and miscellaneous varmints because of our policy of eat what you kill. It tends to cut down on getting trigger happy and leaving a pile of bodies on the ground.
P.S. Doog you're looking good these days... a little make up goes a long way.

while gulls are in desperate need of population control, i find that people who kill "for fun" (as opposed to hunting for food) are one bad day away from mass murder/serial killing & probably tortured kittens as children.

there are other reasons to kill except for food or fun....
