What caliber for Macaques Monkeys?
« on: January 05, 2019, 05:40:25 PM »
There is a wild population of monkeys in Florida of around 200.

Many are infected with a variation of the herpes virus that is lethal to humans.

I guess if you were going to shoot one you better do it from far far away.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead

In answer to the question, it depends on how far away you want to be. ;)

243 should work fine but if you want to move back 1000 yds or so 6.5PRC would be just the ticket. Little bastages would be dead before they heard the shot. ;)

.22LR should do the trick.  Cheap, effective, easily silenced.

Build a little bait pile in the open and wait.

Pull out and nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Looks like youtube pulled the video of that guy nailing a couple dozen hogs with one bait pile/tannerite bomb.  With monkeys you'd probably blow a few bystanders out of the trees as well.

Shoot them all.  Invasive species carrying lethal viruses shouldn't be tolerated.

Yeah... fun. You go ahead and expose yourself to all kinds of diseases and I'll choose to engage from a quarter mile away.
I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you also were meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought

Ewww.... I just read the article.
Yeah, a 22-250 sounds like a lot better option.

I would say 22 LR with a suppressor just to avoid unwanted attention.  Otherwise, I would think just about any varmint round would do the job.  Also, would they react to a shot by hiding. 

I have heard there are feral monkeys near Austin,TX also, but just hearsay.

Wait, are we still talking about monkeys?

I don't think you can catch herpes without having sex with them.
Monkeys don't kiss very well, so I'm safe, plus I believe in marriage first.

I would be concerned with bodily fluids if I was shooting them too close....blood spray and such.  Might be a good reason not use too heavy of a caliber as you don't want them to explode on impact.
