Seriously, these and the chipmunks make me look like a bum. They have all but cleared the nut trees of their fruit. I'm in direct competition for the balance of the apples and pears, and there is never any errant sweet feed left an hour after the livestock is fed............

Their almanac must speak of a worse winter ahead than mine.....

Anyone else notice those little guys running their butts off in your woods?

They've been going gonzo on our pecan trees, not even waiting for them to fully develop. Ya got to watch out too they like to steal your pipes.

With our severe drought we've been having recently, not many nuts for the squirrels up here in N. Texas. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

The few that we got were eaten up almost as quick as they came out. Those rains we had a few months ago helped out some lake wise at least.

Little furry rats always take one bite out of everything you were going to pick that day. It's uncanny. As a kid I solved the problem by eating the squirrels. Not bad but sure takes a bunch to fill you up.

At the last fire hall shindig/bible blasting/political/end times rally they served fried chicken, catfish, chili and squirrel pies....

I was told it took seven adult squirrels to make a decent pie. The pie tasted like onion, garlic and okra. I honestly couldn't tell you what the squirrel tasted like.

LOL Wiz! There's a reason for that, most folks would never get past the first bite if they didn't cover it up. Honestly it's not my favorite but in my book it beats snake.

The squirrels in my neighborhood have been going crazy too! The chipmunks are very active as well. It's nice because we have one of the biggest lots in out neighborhood and behind us is a little creek and a small wooded area.

I'm grateful for the squirrels, rabbits, and chipmunks. I used to shoot the squirrels as a kid to keep them out of the garden but mom would never let us eat them, so I don't know what they taste like.

We did the same thing here during lean times. Helps you learn to shoot a .22 right the first time. Also fun to have flowers, fruit and grains growing wild again without being ransacked.

One of the neighbors was sighting in my Winchester on a squirrel, it blew up.

Haven't thought of a .22. Was actually thinking more about cheese on a treble hook and a 9 weight fly rod........

I'm thinking a squirrel might have stowed away in my Jeep last spring. I recently moved from the upper peninsula back to my hometown of Kalamazoo. Down here we've got fat fox squirrels in town and black phase greys in the woods, but now this little red shows up in the walnut tree behind my house. I haven't seen any of those guys since I left the UP. I only ever see one of them out there now. If he stays around I'll give him a name.

Not sure if anyone here has ever seen the teeth on a skwerl, but it is no wonder they make such short order of acurns.

Squirrels are vermin, a pestilence upon all of mankind. Nothing more than a rat that dwells in a tree. The little nut eaters decided to eat the siding on my house a few years back doing $2500.00 in damage. Their population has thinned a bit since then...kind of mysteriously.

I'm with you 110% on this one friend.

I am pro-life. Killing, with the exception of self preservation, is wrong.
