those little tree rats best look out...the last one I shot in jan was 130 yrds away and I took him with open sights with my 22rim fire....right behind the eye...[:D]...I'll be perfactly honest....that shot probably surprised me as much as him....but then I took another straight thorough the middle of his spine at 90yrds.....until I started seriously hunting squirrel I really didn't think a 22 could be that accurate at those distances...great practice for deer and yote season...have to admit the little boogers are a tad fuzzy even with my glasses on at those distances.....[;)]

It's my excuse to go to camp and scout bear for bow season...I won't go into woods to shoot squirrel at home where I do my serious deer bow hunting....ppl next door spotted a high tined wide racked 8 and I'm hoping when all the guys hit the woods in bow season they'll drive him my way...

As a falconer, my squirrel season in NY doesn't open until Oct 1. But we get to chase them until the end of March

Thanks. The red tail is an awesome predator of tree squirrels and often not witnessed doing it. You were very fortunate to see that. I have a female going in to her third season. She is a gray squirrels worst nightmare. [;)]
