    Re: squirrel hunting rifles

    My friend hunts rabbits with his 1894c "head shots only",But if you hunt squirrels with the .357 magnum or .38 special dont hit the squirrel! When it is sitting on the side of a tree, aim at the bark just under the squirrel and the he will be stunned from the bark exploding
    then go and break his neck while he is still stunned and lying on the ground.
    Hope I explain it correctly.

    You explained it well. But where do you hunt squirrels around where you live?

    I live in washington on 10 acres so i just walk around with the rifle and when i see the little squirrels running around on the trees i do a little whistle to get their attention for one second and i aim at the bark just under the head. And BAM!!!

    We have past thru your town many times. Looked to be too many people around for much hunting.

    That's a good way to get the little critters, with a "bark shot".

    Re: squirrel hunting rifles

    If I may join the thread, I would say that the 1894 would not be a good choice for squirrels. I would much rather
    use a .22 cal or a .17 cal rifle. But if you only have one rifle, dance with what ya brung.

    32-20 would be a good head shot close range pill.......could even do a "bark shot' with it.

    In Kalifornia I call squirrels "daytime tree rats"

    Re: squirrel hunting rifles

    What about these Southern Arizona ground squirrels? Big gray squirrels but we don't have the trees for 'em.

    What I remember about Duvall is the torn up main street when we last past thru in July. Have they completed that yet? Or is that a dumb question.
