Deter birds from valuable crops, airport runways, and industrial sites with our 12 Gauge Shell Crackers. Now available in two range options, standard range Shell Crackers and Long Range 12 Gauge Shell Crackers! Ideal for use when birds are out of range of other pyrotechnics; they are particularly useful for lifting ducks and geese over water. Detonations directly above resting prey birds cause an immediate flee response due to both the startling noise and the fear of attack from above.
Our standard shells travel approximately 60m (200ft) downrange and then detonate with a loud crack, scaring any birds in the area. The NEW long-range 12 Gauge Shellcrackers travel an astonishing 140m (450 ft) downrange before exploding.
Professional wildlife managers can use a 12 gauge shotgun to escalate deterrent with other non-lethal rounds, such as Rubber Slugs, loaded after the pyrotechnics, for bears and other large mammals. Use in clean open-choke shotguns only. Always wear hearing and eye protection. Commonly used as an audio effect in aversive conditioning programs.
