Squirrel hunting in East Texas is a thrill for our grandson.

He is fortunate to have good friends  which take him hunting.

This trip yielded 19 squirrels.

Good squirrel dogs are a pleasure to watch hunt.

The squirrels are cleaned and eaten.

Squirrels – Beware

OK, that is enough for ‘squirrel dumplings’.

He is learning to ‘skin the squirrels’

and doing a good job.

I wish you could come to my house to kill a few squirrels. We are being overrun with them. Our Jack Russell Terriers (four of them) stay as busy as possible killing them, but there are more squirrels than they can keep up with. Keep up the good work. It was also nice to see that you are skinning them, and using them, I hope, rather than letting them go to waste. Good for you! That’s the way to do it.

One less pesky pest……

During the spring months, squirrels have been destroying my plastic game feeders.  They are gnawing holes in the tops of my 30 gallon corn feeders.  It requires constant repair to prevent rain water from entering the feeders and ruining the corn.  These rascals are destructive to not only feeders and but also to game cameras.   Their current damage is slightly less than $200.   May is spring squirrel season and time to reduce the squirrel population.  Hunting squirrels with bow and arrow is a somewhat fair chase.  This squirrel will not do any additional damage.
