The tree rats are THICK around me this year, so much so I was tempted to shoot one Sunday. On top of that, the chipmunks are horrible as well. At one point there was 10 of them under my stand on one time!

I have threatened to bring a pellet gun many times to thin them out....maybe the next time. \:\)

I kept getting bothered by a fox squirrel on the last day of the season a few years ago. He would not stop barking at me and was about 25ft from me and had a great backstop behind him. When it got to be about 30 mins before last daylight, I had enough. I shot him with my .243. Not much meat left after that.
Now, I pack a Walther P-22 with a suppressor and CCI "Quiet" rounds. It does the job a lot quieter.

Chipmunks are pretty dang annoying but there was a gray squirrel the other day while I was "backyard hunting" he wouldn't stop barking at me, hopping from tree branch to branch over my head and would not shut up. I wished I had a pellet gun with me. Squirrels don't bother me as much anymore, I like watching them but a noisy barking one that won't stop or a bunch of squeaking chipmunks gets old.

Yesterday evening I was walking out, almost to the truck, and heard something on a big oak tree and shined my light up just enough to glimpse a flying squirrel. I've seen one fly during the daytime once but this one didn't fly. There are a lot of them in middle TN but you don't always see them.
