Kotzebue? Dated a girl from Kotzebue. Nice girl. Liked her a lot. (Did I already post this?)I like the lines of the daisy buck.
The leveraction repeater is best, usually can nail a stray a couple times before they make it out of the yard.
Kotzebue over the years had a few dog attacks, back in 1990's a pack would stalk kids after school, another time a pair of rotweilers had a couple elementey girls hiding on someones front porch to keep feom getting bitten, then we had a 5yro boy killed by a dog.
Then the city went heavy handed.
All dogs must be secured, fenced or chained or confined in some way, dogs are never set loose.
Must be under your control (by leash)
So when some pooch runs off to crap in my yard they get a welt for their trouble.
A loose dog is a dead dog.
Kotzebue dog catcher puts down over 300 dogs a year.
One year 364 dogs.
Educated dogs know to scram just by shaking the bb gun.
Those that dont get a welt.
We live in a fairly new development and early on we had a problem with bobcats getting into back yards, etc. They never really bothered anybody (just the local rabbit population) but some folks have small dogs and cats and were worried about them getting attacked by a bobcat. There were a few postings on the "Nextdoor" neighborhood blog. I posted about popping the bobcats in the butt with a BB gun so they would be hesitant to jump my fence again. Man! You'da though I advocated clubbing harp seals and skinning Fluffy alive. These people went nutso about how terrible a person I was! Numerous postings about my inhuman brutal tactics. Yikes! I told them all they could pound sand and I'd pop anything in the butt with my BB gun if he jumped over my fence. After a few idle threats directed towards me I casually mentioned that I would also protect myself and family aided by Mssrs. Smith, Wesson, Ruger, and Mossberg. They quieted down after that and I haven't heard from them since. I also stopped reading this "Nextdoor" blog thing. Bunch of neurotic busybodies telling others how to live and posting every time they took a dump.
