60897.jpeg.932f3c370b834ae3489b8476d13fb684.jpegThe squirrels are going crazy at our bird feeders early this year. The punks are scratching up porch posts and some young trees as well. 

So I got my bow back out and started practicing again and killed some with my judo point arrows. 

A lot of the time even the judo points blow through the squirrel,sometimes the fletching stops the arrow. Today I had a squirrel take off with one of my arrows. I think I hit no man's land,lol. It was back and apparently above the spine. I tried to chase it and get another arrow in it but it climbed up a tree. I did not think you could hit a squirrel,get a pass through and not kill it. 

well,I guess I learned something. 

I ordered more arrows and judo points. I should be ready to kill a deer with the bow next fall,the deers vitals will seem like a barn door compared to shooting squirrels.

My dog does not want to be outdone and she killed her 2nd squirrel today...

I feel your pain.  Dam things raid the bird feeder if the dogs let them get close enough.  They have chewed holes in the soffit of my shop.  Everyone I see in my yard gets shot regardless of the time of yr.  Fortunately, I can use a .22 mag.

That's a sweet looking dog. Is she a Jack Russell?

Parson Russell,a sub-group of Jack Russell's. She has longer legs and a rough coat. We are getting another one in two weeks,a puppy that will be 8 weeks old then. That should be fun.

And @mowin,I almost got my 22 out but the bow is so much more fun. There is the issue of finding the arrows on a miss though,and also on a hit apparently...

I hope it is fast, otherwise you will never get a squirrel with it...

Lol, ya it's fast, but they are definitely safe.  I can't recall coming close to a squirrel except one time a young one was a little confused about where to go and jumped from a shrub onto the foot platform.  I didn't expect it and I took out several flowers.  Client got a giggle out of it.
