Tree rats are a rodent, I have killed tons of them, they are very destructive. I do not even think about shooting them . My only thoughts are if my scope is dialed in right before I pull the trigger. A high powered heavy pellet is the way to go, and legal here in
MA. Ironically, relocation is illegal here. :?

We lived in Pottstown Pa. not far from the Limerick nuke plant. We had a chain link fence around two sides of the property. I came out one day and noticed that the fence was sagging. On closer inspection I found the aluminum rods that were twisted and holding the fence to the top rail had been chewed up and were laying on the ground. They not only gnawed them, they pulled them off the fence rail and chucked em on the ground. I replaced them and within two weeks they were chewed up again. This time I got steel wire like a heavy bailing wire. I could see where the little suckers gnawed at them. They worked on them but it would take a couple of months instead of a couple of weeks but they still chewed em up.

Squirrels eating metal? Nuke plant within 10 miles? Coincidence?

I think not!!

The last chapter isn't written yet. A lot of your predictions kind of point the way it will end.

Didn't the guy just want ways to save his shed? HAHAHAHAHA :D

You could try The Evictor for total humane humanity. :D

I'm very angry with hunters. They always promise me venison and I never get any :D

I only enjoy cruelty to liberals. OK and foreigners. OK and politicians but that's it. :P

Lets see. "And the meek shall inherit the earth" doesn't sound like the wolves. Or people.
I go with cockroaches and small mammals like we started out as.

shoot every squirrel you can and 10 more will magically appear dcrane.

Nothing meek about squirrels, very aggressive. No joy in killing them, OK- maybe a little ;)

At least now you are recognizing that you enjoy killing. In your previous post you tried to give reasons as to why your desire to kill was a good thing. Recognizing the emotion behind our actions should help us to get better.

No, not me, I did not venture into judgement of the primal hunt thing one way or another. But, now that I think about it, it is
the hunt that is the primal thrill. The kill is the natural conclusion, but pretty anticlimactic in reality, for me any way. Ultimately,
better for me and my electrical service than the squirrel! :D

Is franco's physc school over? The squirrels are asking for more intervention.
Yeah Paulie, the hunt is the thing. Awesome to get one (deer) when they are scarce or get a big one. But all the excitement is seeing, making the shot, finding the downed game. After that the work starts. Which in these days of 4 wheelers is nothing like the adventure it used to be. The last 2 I got in Maine, I shot them, dressed them, loaded them on my machine, and arrived at camp without help. In the old days I used to carry a pulley set with me and put them up a tree to keep the coyotes from consuming them entirely in one night. :o
