Yeah,fox squirrels are HUGE red lookin squirrels.A red squirrel that is nearly all red,is about half the size of a gray squirrel,i bet they would be fun/frusterating,to hunt with a .22!!!!!

See! I didn't know there was a difference! I just learned somthing today!

Thank you!

But really 13... I can't seem to kill a damn squirrel with this 22! WTH makes you think I could hit a smaller one! LMFAO! It would be fun though! It would probably take me back to being 12 years old again and stomping the wood floor in discust after missing!

Definately fun though cuz once I see one, my heart starts a pounding in anticipation of filling his ass full of lead!

I really enjoy your enthusiasm about shooting your squirrel. It's been 32 years and many, many squirrels ago for me but I remember well. When I was 12 I spotted my 1st and chased it up a hickory tree, then went round and round that tree, and so did the squirrel. I finally got a shot with my Marlin 22 and my squirrel hunting saga began. Get a good, squirrel eye accurate 22 and have fun! I always used a Marlin with open sights and just bought a Ruger 10-22 that shoots just as well. Practice until you can hit them in the eye everytime. I practice shooting twigs off trees or shooting weed stems. Or sometimes I line up empty rounds or acorns on a log and shoot them one at a time. Annie Oakly used to shoot cigarettes out of peoples mouthes. An easy shot for me, but no volunteers to hold the cigarettes!
