Re: Starling, anybody?

Hmmm, I guess not. There have been flying over here, and I was curious to see what others had to say about their experiences, etc.

Re: Starling, anybody?

I like whacking them with a .22, really does a number on them and fine tunes my shooting.

Re: Starling, anybody?

Hmm, never really considered a .22..... Maybe I'll try it. I was going to use the shotgun to get more used to it for turkey season.

Re: Starling, anybody?

We shoot everyone we can to keep them out of the purple martin and bluebird houses. Same for English sparrows. We use a .22 or .17 HMR when they are on the ground and in a safe position to shoot.

The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.

Re: Starling, anybody?

Starlings (the lucky ones) at my house are afraid of the man in the window. I shoot them off the pergola everyday. I use a .22 short
