One other option.

I have gotten predation permits from several municipalities to shoot pests on my properties within city limits.

Depredation I think.

Yes, I probably should have mentioned permits are an alternative to shoot, shovel and shutup.

Quite right. I have gotten depredation permits to conduct legal predation.

2 options ... bow with judo points or blow dart ... either one will work ...

I live on a couple acres and would like to start taking them out, so I'm looking for suggestions.

Give me some opinions on what rifle/caliber/charging systems I should be looking at. I don't need a bazillion-dollar target rifle but I'm not against spending money on something good that I can do some informal target shooting with pest inspection sydney.

FYI, I'm a SCUBA diver and have lots of cylinders, so I can go PCP if they're some good options there. Owning a 22 Sparrow I could use that as well to quiet things down if necessary. These are not requirements, I'm just putting them out there for some data points to help with the suggestions.

Distance: Not far, 20-50 feet.

Ps. I have an air rifle shop somewhat nearby; if they have anything that I should be looking at, that'd be a plus: http://www.rlairgunsupply.com/

I also recommend the Benjamin Marauder. This rifle is very popular for pest control.

I use to take out racoons with a "wrist rocket" sling shot shooting 000 buckshot or a 50 cal round ball. Cheap and effective and quiet. They need a suitable backstop if you miss like any projectile.

Hello..
I have a suppressed Talon SS. PCP. I shoot it around town slaughtering pigeons.. you never hear it.. just the snap of the sled. what's more, the crash of the pigeon hitting the ground...,177 will take out a rabbit no issue with a Crosman cp pellet... it's like everything.. shot arrangement.. hit them in the backside and they run off..hit them in the brains and they never move.
