I have a flock of about 70 chickens where i live. Today i was in the house and heard cackles and squawks coming from their pen. I grabbed my 22 raced outside just as a hawk screemed and took to flight leaving my half eaten chicken. I fired brought down the hawk and now i'm wondering, is this legal?
No. It is illegal to k**l any bird of prey. At least here in Texas it is.
