I got 4 big one's this morning while scouting and just getting out and back into the woods. Gonna fire up the grill tonight.
Oh yeah ... love shooting those furry little rats. I know some people (not me) shoot those little boogers from their bedroom widows. Those people usually use .22 "CB" shorts. In a rifle (not a handgun) they're as quite as a balloon popping.
BTW: Many folks don't know that the "CB" stands for "Cellar/Basement" ... as that was their intended use ... very short range. As such, there isn't much more propellant than the primer ... that's why they're so quite; and safe ... but they do the job.
A little note for you youngsters just starting your 1st big squirrel hunt ... 98% of the time, squirrels travel in pairs, although they may at times be 50' apart. So when you shoot one, stay still and be quiet ... the other one will be along shortly.
Besides honing your shooting skills, another reason to cull those little rats is if you have deer in the area ... the more acorns left for the deer ... the more deer you'll have visiting you.

Tell me "that" was a joke! [:'(]
