Re: Hey Tranter! The 'other' white meat?
After reading these squirrel stories, I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only one to have been "snookered" by 'em! As small as their brains are, is it possible they can outsmart humans? When I moved into my new house, I too, was having squirrel problems and was thinking how smart I was as I was opening one of my sliding windows and slowly, ever so slowly sliding my .20 gauge shotgun out of the window to blast a huge gray squirrel off of my deck. However, I did not notice my next door neighbor coming up my front stairs bringing a welcome 6-pack of beer as a house warming gift, but HE did notice the .20 gauge barrels coming out of the window. Fortunately the gun wasn't pointed at him but away from him, however, it gave him a scare and he said, "holy sh--!" and of course there went the squirrel and scared the h--- out of me too! Needless to say, the squirrel lived to eat more of my birdseed and neighbors always called before they came over! But it's a story that's told all over town with me having been the principal at the time; it really cut down on people coming over the house! Maybe that wasn't such a bad thing after all. . .!
