According to sources TPWD Commissioners did vote to allow the take of alligators, game animals, non-migratory game birds and furbearers with air guns and air bows.

The proposal specified that the take of alligators, deer, pronghorn, big horn sheep, javelina, and turkey will be restricted to air guns .30 caliber or larger.

Have you shot one of the high powered air guns?

Those .30, 9mm, and .45 air guns pack more power than handguns that are legal for hunting.

Here you go, Shane. Read to your heart's content.

Air guns

A certain percentage of us were destined by nature to be eaten by lions. Unfortunately, there’s quite the lion shortage these days.

And if you don't think they can do the job, check out the Quackenbush web site.
