You don't expect them to eat their pancakes dry, do you?

Put wrap around the tubes they chew on. Better yet, put barbed wrapping around them so when they bite it the tube would bite back.

They say it's a bad idea to bring in an exotic species to balance out another species, but just this once they should try. Bring in some hill folk from Tennessee. That's solve your squirrel problem. And then they'll just die off at the first frost.

Great!  Now I just want someone to make a computer game involving armies of armed and battle-ready squirrels.  What's Blizzard been up to lately?

If it wasnt so far to travel I would love to fill my freezer full of squirrels. I would happily come harvest tree rats for food.

I've always heard they tasted nasty. No?

So the expert "advises against using any chemical deterrence on the tubing or anywhere near it." I wonder why. My first thought was a bitter apple spray or something similar.

Squirrel is pretty good. It's got a texture like chicken thigh, but a flavor more like beef. They're more fun to hunt than anything else too. My kid loves squirrel season.

Isn't there a soy component in a lot of modern car parts? I wonder if it's the same for this type of tubing.

How about you not brag about raising your kid to take pleasure in killing animals? That's how serial killers get their start.

Virtually every serial killer has eaten a sandwich too.

You sound like a guy who eats sandwiches.

I went squirrel hunting once. The meat smelled so bad I ended letting my buddy keep my carcasses. I've eaten plenty of varieties of game meat can't imagine how squirrel tastes good.

How about there us a big difference between learning to hunt and make respectful use of game, vs lighting the neighbors cat on fire and jerking off on its chared remains.

Just curious, have you field dressed any other game? In my experience, most of what's inside an animal smells terrible once it's opened up. Squirrel guts don't smell great, but they're a hell of a lot better than turkeys.

Ive been hunting them for as long as I can remember. IMHO some of the best game meet out there. Good on you for getting your son outside and learning that protein comes at a cost. Its good to know some folks still value the outdoors and arent content to let their child waste away watching their "Favorite Youtuber"

I'm not experienced with small game, so I only assisted my buddy with field dressing. He is the avid squirrel hunter who insisted I go with him.

My game of choice is elk.

In my opinion, hog guts are the worst.
 
2019-03-15 04:20:51 PM  
Gee, it's almost as if climate change results in changes to agricultural conditions.  Warmer winters = more active squirrels = more squirrel caused damage as they look for food.  If the winter was longer and more severe, then the squirrels would stay in semi-hibernation more, and the trees would produce fewer nuts and have a shorter growing season.  All of that would result in a lower squirrel population and less squirrel damage.  It's the climate, stupid.

soooooo tasty.

for college graduation one of my fraternity brother's father brought two coolers full of an elk he had hunted. My god some of the tastiest meat i've ever had.

Thank you :)

He's definitely got his favorite Youtubers, but he's also able to trim hooves or catch crawdads and I try to let him do things that scare me.

I'm pretty proud of the way he's turning out.

We have tapped maples in our area, but the hawks & owls are also here so the tree rodent population is kept in check.

/ plus some are caught by foxes, coyotes and bobcats
// never personally witnessed a domestic cat or dog *catch* a squirrel
/// we do have fishers here, but they're so secretive that I've only seen one once

Actually, some people with favorite YouTubers have guns too.  They go shoot Mosques though, not squirrels.  So I guess yay squirrel hunting?
