Nusciance Armadillo Removal with a .30 Airgun
This armadillo has been doing damage for months but I could never catch up with him. He finally crossed my path last night. I'm using a .30 Flex air rifle, shooting 50 grain JSB pellets at 865fps. Shot distance is approximately 50 yards. I'm using a homemade night vision system consisting of a camcorder modified to see IR light, an IR illuminator, and a mount that lets the camcorder see thru my otherwise standard rifle scope. Look how accurate the airgun is when matching my crosshair placement to the holes in the armadillo (it takes me a little while on video to find the entry hole on the first shot, but it turns out to be right behind the eye).
