Can't blame you there. Watched friends uncle shoot a 4 wheeler with man on it. Found him
On his fenced and highly marked proportion. Turns out friends uncle had a drug problem too. Didn't shoot the man just the tire.

For hunting four legged squirrels, find where they are feeding, sit and be patient, they will come to you. For two legged squirrels, use exactly the same technique.

i find that after the first shot, it takes a while for them to come back out. so i zero my .22 at 25yds. with cb caps.
i have shot 5 in 30 minutes from the same spot.
