Yes. "Thanks to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission, squirrel hunters next season can use an air rifle to bag their bushy-tailed game. Thatís assuming the air rifle will shoot a .177 or larger caliber pellet a minimum of 600 feet per second, and most of them will."

I actually love squirrels, especially stewed with dumplings!

I hate them! I have waged a war against them in my backyard for eating my pecans. Wife thinks I took it too far by removing the screens from the windows so I can shoot outta the house with the pellet gun. peep

I can't help it! They sit in a fork of the tree 15 yards out of the bedroom window and try to eat a green pecans and then drop it to the ground once they realize it's still to green!
I have to admit I channel Bill Murray from Caddyshack. Nothing to see here mr squirrel! This window is not moving. Don't mind the black barrel coming out the window. BAM! elmer

I don't necessarily hate them, but my dogs do. I thought I'd test out their hunting instincts and shoot one. That was probably 30 or 40 squirrels ago. I created squirrel loathing monsters. The blue lacy is barking her head off out there right now.

I just can't believe how prolific those little tree rats are. Anyone have a good source for .22 CB shorts? I'm running low.

We had a back neighbor in his nineties that did the same thing with his bathroom window and a deer feeder. Got his venison every year until he passed.

I hate squirrels. I had one disable my diesel truck in my driveway by eating some wires on top of my engine. The reason I am sure it was squirrels is because there was a pile of chewed up acorns under the chewed wire.

My Dad has killed a ton of them. He stopped counting at 200. They steal peaches and pecans

LOL ... yeah, I grew up next door to an old lady that had about 40 pecan trees in her yard/orchard. She told me to kill them all, I would sit in the corner tree with a pellet gun or a 22 and watch for them. once I spotted one, I would stalk around to get within shooting range, plink/pop, take it back home, skin/clean and mom would get ready to cook it. After about 30 minutes of this process, we had enough for dinner. No telling how many hundreds, if not thousands I have killed/eaten in my life. I prefer the younger ones German fried but the older one are best in dumplings...

'nother one just hit the ground. Timed my shot with a jet flaring overhead to land at SAT. Rem 541S with a Leupold rimfire scope.

It's great practice for hunting.

Tryem in pinto beans sometime...and make up some cornbread, as well. I have fed quite a few people squirrel this way and none of them ever knew they were eating squirrel (venison).

Used to have them on the property all the time and enjoyed eating them. Then the lid on the corn storage bin got left a little loose one fall. All the squirrels in a mile radius got in there and could not get back out. Made a huge mess and they died of dehydration quickly. I pulled them out and lost track after counting to 40. Felt bad about it, and didn't see another squirrel around for 15 years.

They are my best friend this time of year. Have killed lots to of deer thanks to squirrels telling me when a deer is coming through the woods.
