Default Squirel Problem

Ok i have a squirel living in and around my house (in a community) It's stared me down a few times and hissed at me. I was gonna try and put a bb gun to it but it wont come out anymore. How should i get it out? Will a bb gun take care of it? (its an old daisy pump action-getting a new one soon)

watch out for them squirrels they may charge,if he gets you down it could be bad.Just kidding.Shoot that sucker with whatever you have,bird seed or a small pile of corn will draw them in,and you may be able to kill enough for a meal.Fried squirrel hind quarters and gravy and bisquits would be a good reason to kill em!!!!darned it now I'm hungry!!

If this is a mature trophy size squirrel you may have to boil or pressure cook him in order to be able to chew him.good luck

I had a squirrel living in my garage once. I pumped that crossman about 12 times, shot that thing in the back of the neck, and bb bounced off and he ran away. Get some subsonic rounds for a 22, no louder than a pellet gun. This will take care of him.

The BB gun should work great as long as you shoot straight. Or you can try a rat trap.

My friend had three flying squirrels in his A/C ducts, he waited for them to come to some bait outside the vent and killed them with a crobar.

Yea theres a million things you can try, but I"m a fan of the old fashion way. shoot his crumb snatch"in little butt. If you try the rat trap, whitch does work well, tie it up to somthing. they can drag the trap off, and start to stink.

Head shot with BB gun should work. I took out a rabbit, with a BB gun, 3 pumps, shot it through the eye, into the brain, did the bunny death flop

Some corn on the ground and a subsonic 22 or 22 short. Then skin him and have him for dinner.

BB gun will work just fine, I've killed plenty with a 10 pump with a shot to the head.
