I have been tempted in the past to take my bow so I could shoot these dudes in a quiet way.

Ive never had one be consistently on my nerves like you have though. I probably would have ended up blasting him with a 30-06 if he kept on doing that to me.

go to Lowes and get a 5' piece of 1/2" aluminum tube in the electrical conduit aisle. Then get some bamboo skewers, X-acto #11s and some paper and glue, and youtube "how to make blowgun darts".

With some practice you can get pretty accurate up to 10 yards or so and an x-acto dart will kill a squirrel (speaking from experience).

Thats great catman. Ive never thought of a blowgun for squirrels. Would work very quiet.

Sorry fellas, can't help you here... I guess our squirrels here in MO are of a different breed. They won't come close to you here, they act as though they're fearful of humans.
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
