Thread: Best calibre for water voles?

    Best calibre for water voles?

    Evening all. One of my permissions has a wide shallow river running through it and the landowner has asked me to heavily cull the vole population as they are causing a lot of bank erosion. So I was just wondering whether to use my 10 shot 12 bore loaded with 1oz slugs or maybe my .308 with 160g nosler partitions? I want to ensure a clean kill as I've heard they can turn a bit bloody nasty if wounded.

    Get yourself a 'Barn Owl' or 'Red Kite' costume, no one will say a word...you may even get the backing of the RSPCB.

    Is there not a local pack of "Vole Hounds" whose services you could employ?

    I thought so as well, not to mention it should be funny to start with.
