Angry Darn Squirrels!!!!

Those squirrels are everwhere, in my house in the back yard killing golden finchesright off the bird feeder! "Aruggh". The pesky little animals have made me so mad that i want to shoot them. But what to shoot them with? I have a Cooey model 75 .22 caliber, 20 Ga. and a 444 Marlin. Which shood i use?

What do you mean killing finches? Like the bird finches? If that's the case I am wondering what the heck kind of squirrels you have there. Anyway, I agree with Buckfever. If they keep killing things you ought to go with the 444 LOL.

My weapon of choice for squirrels is a bow and arrow. I take two "squirrel arrows" to the stand with me every time I go out.

Angry

I am wondering the same thing about the squirrel killing the birds. I don't know what kind of squirrel i have but i know it's a black squirrel. It might be something else killing the birds and not the squirrel but i am still going to shoot them!!
