Exactly how does the bipod benefit you when trying to shoot a squirrel out of a 60' oak tree? It seems like it would be a hinderance to me.

It doesn't easier to shoot prairie dogs and rabbits though

Oh, I killed a lot of squirrels with my Sears bolt-action single shot .22 and BB shorts when I was a kid. I feel real bad about it.

Once deer season opens, yes, I use a 22 wmr. If one of those 80 to 100 lb balls of tender meat begs me to pop it between the eyes I will be happy to oblige it. CCI game points put them right to sleep. Usually I am to deep in the woods to drag a big deer out. I just want some meat to fry, not a heart attack.

Went out yesterday for some squirrel hunting, clearly the tree rats in the woods I hunt heard we was coming and disappeared. But what I did catch was the worst case of baby ticks attack I've ever seen...
I'm not exaggerating when I say I had 200-300 tiny no see em ticks each, from inside our socks to the collar of our shirts. SUCKED. Things were s ****ing tiny I didn't even notice till it was to late. Got home took a steel wool and rubbing alcohol shower to get the off, now I have 300 itchy ass swollen bug bites covering my stupid body. Buddy showed me some spray to keep them off your clothes, promethirine? Anyways we'll go back,, just a lil more prepared.....

Permethrin. It works great but is NOT to be applied to the skin...clothes only. Once it's dry, you can wash the clothes several times over a month or so and it remains effective. Once it's dry (on fabric), direct skin contact is ok (like socks, underwear, hats, etc).

Also read up a little on it; it can be toxic to some domestic animals if ingested (cats for sure, maybe others).

It kills the bugs shortly after contact on treated material. It's also exceptional against fly and mosquito. If you spray netting, it'll take out flies, Mosquitos, and pretty much any other flying pest.

why wouldn't a person eat them? ethical and responsible hunters don't kill for fun. even many hunters that hunt for sport or trophies, donate the meat to worthy causes, like homeless and battered womens shelters.

there is a huge difference in killing and hunting.
