Well I'm VERY excited about the squirrel opener. I've seen bunches of them this spring. I'm sure it is due to the really mild winter we have had here. I've seen half a dozen at a time including lots of skinny tails raiding the bird feeders in my backyard.


This was from last year's opening day

My dog is coming along in his training, but it has hit a snag. He ATE my $1500 hearing aid the other day. \:o I'm afraid the wife is going to demand his head or I'm going to have to get rid of him. He just has so much energy and can be destructive when he is bored. I hate to keep him in his pen all the time, but when I can't supervise him he gets into trouble. \:\(


Benjamin Discovery .22 PCP

I can't wait to try the Benjamin Discovery .22 PCP air rifle on squirrels! My son in law was spinning my Gamo spinner everytime at 30 yards, so I know it is deadly accurate. With the new muzzlebreak it is also incredibly quiet. Mostly I got the Disco because I can attach a camera to it for filming my hunts. I don't have to deal with the recoil issue from the last couple of years of trying to film.

That's a beautiful air rifle. I'll shoot a few squirrels this spring, probably mostly in the backyard. Will have to take my air rifle in the boat when I float down the river to fish as well. Better make sure that's legal first.

it's legal if you are not under power and have permission from the landowner(s).

spring is for fishing ;\) i doubt if i'll do much, if any, squirrel hunting.

what about on streams where the public boundary extends 10 feet onto the river bank, and a tree is growing on the edge of the water leaning over, and a squirrel is up there. Seems like it would be OK to shoot in that instance.
