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.

i hope your not going to shoot it in the house

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

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!!

When I go hunting I am gone for the WHOLE day.
Hunting is not a sport it's a tradition.
