Hunting with air guns isn’t new by any means. The oldest pneumatic air gun technology has existed since the 15th century. However, it was simply too expensive and only wealthy royalty were able to own or afford the cost of practice. Over the centuries, society has changed and many more people now have access to airguns that are affordable. Today, air gun hunting or shooting has increased in popularity as a sport, recreational backyard plinking and even pest control.
Hunting with an air gun requires a combination of gun and shooter accuracy, an air gun of appropriate power should be used for the intended use. A good knowledge of your chosen target anatomy in order to make the best shot possible should also be considered. Much of this information is acquired through experience, while some can only be obtained by studying and corresponding with other hunters. A good place to start learning is with pest control on undesirable varmint or rodent species, followed by the pursuit of small game during the legal hunting season. As the hunter’s experience and familiarity with their air gun increases, there are additional challenges that come with the pursuit of big game with air guns.
