What method you use for taking Squirrel?

Postby ArkansasDon » Tue Dec 12, 2006 8:37 am

I use an old family .22 past down from one to another (from a great papaw to my papaw now handed to me). I'm 47 yrs old and had this since I was 22 yrs old.
I use an old single shot with CB Longs ".22cal" they never hear the one that hits them. "it's an old Husqvarna Vapenfabriks .22 with 24" octagon barrel

early mornings or just before dark it seems that squirrels are predictably active. i use a rem. 597 .22 cal i have a friend that swears on his .17 cal but it tends to be overkill if he doesnt shoot them in the head. i have taken a few with my bow on long boreing mornings in the treestand when im about to get down it helps to make sure that my bow is still in tune at least that is my excuse just so i have a reason to shoot it.
