What caliber for Penguins?

Alright. I've just read that sometimes (in emergency), scientists in Antarctica will eat penguins if supplies can't get to the station. Penguins were also a food source in the expeditions made in previous centuries (and a cure for scurvy).

It made me curious. With what caliber do you shoot a penguin? The biggest ones are 100 - 120 lbs (Emperor penguins).

    They've got no natural land predators, just walk up and shoot them in the head with .22lr. Alternatively use 5.56 because I really wouldn't be surprised if there's an armory in one of those antarctic stations, and if there is, it probably has guns that shoot 5.56, so use that.

      Yeah but they're pretty big (can be 4 ft tall) and move fast. Distance may help, so I think 5.56 might be nice

      That's both really funny and depressing, and at the same time, the exact outcome I imagine when hunting an animal that has never known fear while on dry land.

      >and move fast
      Not on land lmao. You'll only run into trouble on an inclined surface where they can slippity-slide around.

      If you're ever unsure on caliber. 10mm is the way.

      even your desire to keep wonders of nature around is just your survival instincts kicking in. beauty is about keeping around a world where you're on top of the food chain. notice how the wonders of nature that are dangerous to humans are mostly dead wherever humans live.

    Just use a long club.

    It's a penguin, on land it waddles around at the speed of a toddler unless it can slide downhill.

    Other penguins just scatter if one gets attacked they don't swarm you.

      The last time I met a penguin in the wild it was in Africa (yes they swim there sometimes) and those guys could be captured practically barehanded you don't really need a gun. Spear or club or net all would be fine so you don't get pecked.

      depending on time of year, your would be much better off staying just out of range of the penguins, waiting for a seal

      Did you know that the name "penguin" originally referred to a northern hemisphere species (pic related), which went extinct in the 19th century and is now (retroactively) usually called the great auk?

      Southern hemisphere penguins are completely unrelated species which ended up called that due to looking kind of like penguins (great auks). They're fake / replacement penguins.

      ) penguins?
      >If you come for their Feathers you do not give yourself the trouble of killing them, but lay hold of one and pluck the best of the Feathers. You then turn the poor Penguin adrift, with his skin half naked and torn off, to perish at his leasure. This is not a very humane method but it is the common practize. While you abide on this island you are in the constant practice of horrid cruelties for you not only skin them Alive, but you burn them Alive also to cook their Bodies with. You take a kettle with you into which you put a Penguin or two, you kindle a fire under it, and this fire is absolutely made of the unfortunate Penguins themselves. Their bodies being oily soon produce a Flame; there is no wood on the island.

    32 acp. Go one grade above 22 so you get reliable center fire and penetration without destroying small game. It also has comparable ballistics to a 22 rifle when shot out of a tomcat so you can put it and a box in a low weight survival kit.
