    i got out around 7 this morning and did some walking. i ended up sitting down about 30 feet away from a big ol' maple tree and a squirrel came bounding up a fallen rail fence. pretty sure i got him in the face with the first shot because he tried to hop off but was having a hard time by the looks of it and he ended up going about ten feet up a tree. apparently squirrels are pretty tough because i had shot him 3 times by the looks of it. i had panicked a little when i saw him take off from the first shot but i didn't see the missing eyeball until after he fell out of the tree. i'm guessing i could have just waited it out but i'd rather not lose him in a tree

    Gravity is your friend.. if they go up. They most time come down, just not gracefully.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    first squirrel I shot at was on top of a sap line. hit the sapline and he just about crapped his pants. sheepishly I apologized to the landowner and offered to make amends...

    Takes less fox and grey squirrels to make stew, then the red ones. Out west you can shoot all the red squirrels you want but it takes a pile to make a meal for one person. Try feeding five or six guys..

    I hope you're joking. That's the dumbest and most unethical thing I've read. So if they don't fall out you've killed a "few" squirrels that will rot in the nest, nice. TC
