Tree rats - part 2

3268 Views 10 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Rich Z
I don't know how those little buggers know it, but I am just itching to sic my new Remington .17 HMR on them, and they are nowhere around any longer. Now I see a lot of what look like squirrel nests in the trees, but how do you tell a squirrel nest from the nest of some more innocent critter? Is there any good rule of thumb to use to be able to tell the difference?

If they won't come to me, I will go to them......:madeuce:

cut holes in bottoms of cardboard boxes

(to protect the birds) put rat traps inside, put the boxes in trees, use peanut butter/graham crackers as bait.
I've heard that Pecan growers pay $5 a

squirrel scalp, but also that they spray those trees so much that you'd better wear a moon suit if you go into those groves.
