Do NOT SHOOT AT TURTLES you never know where the bullet will go if you miss , might hit a neighbor or some kid a mile away , Few years ago in akron ohio a kid was shooting his dad's 22lr at brids in the air 3 days later they tracked donw the area where they though the bullet came from long story short the kid missed the bird and KILLED some lady sun bathing on her patio true story kid got involuntary manslaughter charges and shooting inside city limit's not a good outcome i would not chance this bullets will hit water and go god only knows where

thanks guys, but ive had bass take groundhog even ..... little tired of the turtles and i dont think i can get beef liver ........ i have large hills around us too and i dont aim any where theres a house within 2-3 miles.
Can't say I've ever seen a snapper sunning itself. Could happen I suppose. If you have a grocery store, you can get beef liver. If you honestly have bass eating groudhog meat, you need to be getting some bass out of there. It sounds way overstocked.

set some bank lines,i set them for turtles all summer long,i use trot line hooks on 20 foot piece of contractor string line and hook it to a 2 foot long 3/4 inch rebar,i use what ever chicken i find on sale for bait
An old man told me once to wait until the pond freezes over in the winter and look for them under the ice near the edge of the pond. He told me to use a rock to bust the ice and pull them out. I guess you could shoot them then too, just don't hit the ice. You could give that a shot. What kinda gun are you using? Just curious.

thanks guys ive been using a 22 rifle...... with such a smalll target its very hard get within a inch or two ever shot but it just isnt working ...... and the pond isnt over stocked it just has some odd freaking bass i cant get a bite off a lure at all..... only live bait........pond is full of brood of bass and gills, though..... im not a bad shot just not very good at a quarter sized target at about 20-30 yards.....

You can increase your target size if you can get in a elevated position (aka; Tree). It also makes it easier cause they don't see you and, you can see them before they surface!!! Plus, the bullets will not ricochet as bad (better angle)!!!
