All the time. Ground squirrels, rabbits, gophers, badgers........Its challenging yes, but the rewards are great if you can bag that small varmint. Small game heads and judo points are my tools.

do it all the time from my deer stand when no deer are moving. Have even shot a little red squirrel in the head and have shot multiple gray and fox squirrels along with a possum all in the head.. gives it even more challenge.

I shot one in the ribs with a 90 gr. Muzzy. It hopped up on a stump with the arrow sticking out both sides and barked at me. then it hopped down, (the arrow fell out at this point) ran 100 yards and climbed in a hole in a tree. I couldn't believe it. That would be like shooting a deer with a shovel!
