I knew a fellow that use to hunt them with a .54 caliber flintlock....He only took head shots and was pretty good at it.

My dad use to talk about his grandpa "barking" them. He would find them hugging the tree and shoot beside their head letting the bark knock them out.

Think head shots. Here's a pic of one I shot the other day with a recent aquisition, a Hopkins and Allen caplock "squirrel rifle" in .36 cal. I was shooting a cast .350 lead ball and 30grs of Pyrodex P powder. Damage was more than I was expecting.
