Hello everyone! So I live in SE Portland and I've had a major rat problem, to make lemonade out of lemons I bought a red ryder bb gun and have hit a few of them (traps are more effective but less fun). I also got a raccoon that was digging in my garbage but the bb barely bothered it. Anyways the bb gun has awoken something in me and I'm thinking of moving onto a pellet gun and trying out small game hunting. My questions are: Does anyone know if it is legal to shoot racoons with pellet guns in Portland in your own backyard? How loud is a pellet gun, I live in pretty close quarters with my neighbors will they freak out? Where can I go small game hunting around Portland? Thanks!
