    I do. I have 2 arrows in a 6 arrow quiver with blunts.

    I get bored and if they are in season one or two are going down.

    I take one once in a while. I could have shot a big fox squirrel tonight if I would have been a bit faster drawing my bow. So far this year I've seen at least 1 everytime out for deer. I should start shooting them more just so I can have something to show for my time. (Not that I don't enjoy my time in the woods, but I like to eat sometimes. )

    I've killed a few pesky red squirls with my bow. They tried to take up residence in my garage. I'm more accurate with my bow than a pellet gun, and I'm in a villige where firearm discharge is banned. I just used my target tipps. Complete pass through, every time.

    Default squirrel hunting

    ive shot around 60 this year just in my back yard. i bought i pellet gun that shoots 1200 fps. but hopefully i get good enough to shoot them with my bow. my town also bans discharge of firearms including sling shots. but a mini-bike muffler and some good electrical tape makes a really good silencer.

    absolutely

    I hate tree rats, there were 5 or 6 playing their stupid games around me on Saturday... if i had a .22 or my pellet gun I'd be eating tree rat stew tonight!

    Make sure you shoot the Judo point a few times to make sure you see point of impact, mine hit WAY low at 20 yards. I have to use my 35 yard pin at 20 yards.

    You could argue that a pellet gun isn't a firearm. It pnumatic, no "Fire" involved to shoot it.

    My son loves eating those tree rats...I think they are nasty. He is all about eating whatever he kills for sure! We ate rattlesnake last night!! The wife actually said it was good, but I passed and ate venison instead

    I've hunted them from my deer stand with rubber blunts. When you hit them in the head they flip off of the trees really neat. With flu-flu arrows and a recurve they are fun to stalk and shoot.
