How many Grey Squirrels are killed in 2019

Recommended Posts

 Great photo, much more interesting than trawling through hundreds of photos of greys raiding the feeder!

I seem to have run out and need to restock.  Nothing on the cams and only the wood mice and birds are eating the peanuts in the flip tops. One plus to the flip tops is it attracts mice and therefor becomes a MacDonalds for the local owl population.

That's a great picture, conservation at its best 👍

I didn’t catch him yesterday but his luck ran out today. I also had another male under the trap loan scheme.

It looks like the trapping season has finally started.

1 in the week last week walking the wood with the shotgun and 1 yesterday evening from the high seat waiting for Charlie. .22-250 at 40yards is a bit drastic but the opportunity was not to be missed.

Decided that l needed an upper body workout this afternoon, so l got the TX200 out of the locker and went squirrel bashing at the golf course, forgetting just how heavy it can get when doing walked up shooting and after 2 hours l was feeling the effects.

But on a good note 3 squirrels will not be bothering anyone tomorrow.

Now sitting here with arm muscles like a farrier after a hard day. 🥵

you should have had the TX in a golf bag sir, wheeling it around would be much easier, select your calibre for the shot, 110 yards slight dip to the left on the green? Hmr it is, 25 yards sat in a tree? Out with the TX.

Well worth the pain, but I agree they are not for humping around. I get tired just carrying mine from the Landie to the blind.

Excellent idea, with the amount of different species on the course it could be TX, HMR, .223 all out together, and to fit in l could wear a red jumper and white slacks, plus of course a yellow cap, ain’t gonna happen l’m afraid.

Have a gent at the clay shoots that uses one though to good effect, although he is old 🤫

At last!

After five visits to this particular feeder and the level going down continuously and not seeing any squirrels.

I made the effort and was there at first light this morning and was rewarded with two shot squirrels and sighting of two others.

I'll be back.

Another trapped, same site. Can’t get them at 5 other sites though. Is everyone else giving the greys an Easter break? 😆
