Just took one off the bird feeder with the blowgun. It was a bloodbath!

That's impressive I bet you were stoked.

I don't know about impressive. Kain shooting carp  with a blowgun is impressive. But I was stoked! :chuckle:

There seems to be no end to them. 


They just keep coming.

Few game are funner to chase with a good redtail hawk than a gray squirrel.
You'll never get a Big'un if you keep shooting Little'un's.

I'm weak.  I can't bring myself to kill some of them as I've named them now.  My favorite is "Adidas".  He's huge and has almost snow white feet.  It looks like he's wearing tennis shoes.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

Squirrel populations are growing fast on the westside . I see them just about everywhere I go and hunt but its not like back east where you have thousands and can go sit under the hardwoods and shoot as many as you want . I notice a lot more black phase ones now . just have to make sure your not shooting the western grey squirrel thinking its a Eastern grey squirrel , best info I can give on that is that the Western grey is more Silverish grey / brighter in color and more brownish around the eyes . when I was growing up in PA squirrel hunting was my #1 thing . I sure miss those cat size Fox squirrels . Its about time to return to PA next year for some whitetail and squirrel hunting .. last time I was home there where millions since no one hunts them anymore ! :yike:

There should be no confusion between Eastern and Western, don't hunt in the map location that the State's website shows where the Western's live. Out of those locations, any gray squirrel is fair game.

lokidog, have you been working on the squirrel population in Sconny? Looks like you're in squirrel paradise.

 :chuckle:

I did shoot one when I was back there in September. Also saw an albino one that I decided to give a pass this year. Next year he will go on the wall, if I see him.

I'm still mostly hanging here in WA, at least until next summer, but possibly longer.

My pops lives in Prairie Farm. Went back a few years ago in September and had a blast.
I'll bet the TSA folks hadn't seen too many frozen squirrel carcasses in a carry-on! :chuckle:

I flew cross country once with a small carry on cooler full of rabbit carcasses. The x-ray guy looks at me as it goes through like WHaaaat?, I just said Cats....  :chuckle:
