    I have been told woodpeckers are protected so you'd better not get caught harming one.

    Also if your friend wants one, it’s best if it doesn’t look to similar to a real firearm.

    As a general statement projectiles are no goes in city limits. That said what you are trying to do is far from uncommon.

    Illegal within city limits unless in a designated facility.

    It's just a really bad idea in general if you live in the city - a neighbor may not realize it's an airsoft gun and call the police, at which point they will respond assuming it's a firearm.

    I'll go ahead and assume Buster's friend isn't stupid enough to do this in such a place that his neighbors can easily see him.

    A friend of mine allegedly used a pellet gun to get rid of his woodpecker. I'd love to do that to my resident woodpecker(s), but don't have the balls to, as I only have a 5ft fence around my yard; lots of neighbors around to see.

    Like @ExtraSlow said, the law is you do nothing to them. You simply watch as they destroy your house.

    friend can see woodpecker from well within the house due to angles.

    It's also illegal to shoot them from inside your house, regardless of whether or not you are scaring your neighbors. People doing stuff like this is why rules get tighter and tighter all the time for hobbyists.

    If it illegal anyway might as well use a 22, subsonics would help.

    Does your friend have a good lawyer?

    I advised friend to quit with the rambo shit and just hang up a picture of the new M4. That would scare even a woodpecker away.

    If I had a clear line of sight through an open-able window, from well within the house, it's highly likely I would remedy it the redneck way. Unfortunately for me, this isn't the case.

    Were not in Brooks - assume pretty much anything fun/projectile is illegal here.

    Do it at night or in a way no one knows anything. I have a handgun BB/co2 gun i used in my condo to deal with pigeons. I always stayed concealed. Get the wrong person freaked out with a toy gun, and its suddenly CPS TAC knocking.

    My neighbour shoots squirrels from his back deck in full view, with his airsoft, when they attack his bird feeder. No fucks given and his background for the shot is his own back yard.

    Don’t get caught... or just dont.

    They’re protected under the Migratory Bird Convention Act which has some big time fines if ever caught

    My buddies house haha:



    He said he couldn't do shit about it cuz they're protected so all he's been doing is throwing tennis balls at it to try and get it to leave or go somewhere else but it comes back after a while unfortunately. He's had to fill in the holes with spray foam hahaha.

    I've seen one around my block recently too, caught it on the ring cam on the side of the house, also saw it pecking at my neighbors place.

    Fucking thing is a nightmare.

    Yeah well I wonder how they get the soft flowing caramel inside the Caramilk bar but you don't see me making a god damn thread about it. Slap your wife Baygirl, straighten him out.

    You didn't even read your own source! The war on Emu's was largely unsuccessful and those bastards continued to run amok ruining crops.
