They really fly nice out the window of a van from a hav-a-hart...
:o Ouch! Nice guy! :shock:
I once saw two squirrels running from opposite directions on a electric line above the street. They met in the middle and got into a tussle with both of them plummeting to the asphalt below with a big thud/crack noise. They both ran off in different directions; no worse for wear :lol:

there is documentation that describes Davey Crocket killing squirrels by "Barking" them.
this (i understand) is still a comman practice in some areas. espesially amongst black powder shooters.
instead of actually aiming at the squirrel, the hunter aims at the branch that the squirrel stands on. the squirrel is dispatched by the exploding bark; much more cleanly than by a huge lead ball. even the diminutive .32 calibre will do a lot of damage to rodent-sized game.

We get some pretty big ones out here that growl a lot in the cages.PAWS(progressive animal welfare society)..suggest drowning the suckers...don't let them go...
My neighbor keeps feeding the damn things..and I keep threatening to shave their tails so she knows what they really are..
They eat all my peaches and a good percentage of the asian pears end up on the ground with one bite out of each one.
The guy I'm working with has a huge walnut tree..Guess what..they don't get any because the squirrelies wipe them out..
:evil:
Hey Cuz..com'on up here and help yourself to as many as you can carry back!In a month's time you could have enough for a nice coat AND a pair of slippers.. :lol:

Squirrels taste better than rabbit and all the other ground dwelling animals that there is a "season" on in my opinion ;)

I am officially a TLUD maniac :lol: I've become addicted to seeing how well my stove lights with paper. I might have some photos and videos posted tomorrow.

Here are some random photos of my testing for the past week. I need to put them in some kind of order to mean anything to you. They are for my reference for future use. There are some 20 second video segments made with my camera not my video recorder. The segments need to be merged when I get the time. I had to do my outside chores today :roll:

Zelph, the only picture missing is the one with a frying pan with some floured squirrel in some hot grease! ;) See how nicely these post all tie together? :lol: :lol: :DP:

That jake turkey would look even nicer in my Dutch Oven :lol:

Along side the jake would be some squirrel to make it taste a lot sweeter.......more like chicken :mrgreen:

Those evening photos shows how hot the firebox gets to be glowing red. After the evening meal has had a chance to settle, a nice glowing campfire can be made in the stove. Rehydrate some marshmallows and make somores. ;)
