I don't care what anyone says, they are year around entertainment for me. I'm getting really good with that pellet rifle. Great way to spend an afternoon. Sometimes you can't make it to your stand but I can make it to my porch. LOL

So at least I'm not the only one who designates an arrow or two for varmints. lol I didn't get a deer this year in bow season but I did shoot two squirrel's and a raccoon, muzzy's really do a number on them. It's fun, it's awesome practice, and it helps eliminate the 20 billion noisy squirrels around my tree stand.

But when the time comes for small game season and I want to specifically hunt for squirrels, I like a .22 or one of my other rim fires it adds a little challenge and excitement to the hunt where as the point and shoot shotgun gets a little boring. Besides if you ever eat them (not that you are in this situation) theres nothing like chomping on a pellet or two. lol

I thought you might want to know black squirrels are the same as gray squirrels just a differnt color because when the first trappers and stuff came thru it was almost a jungle so it was really dark and the squirrels had to be dark to in order to hide better, but since we chopped all that out they had to a adapted lighter color in order to blend in better(Also i think its the same with black panthers).
