Late this spring,3 young squirrels emerged from their nest in one of my trees.A grey,a black and an albino.in the 35 years I have lived here,a couple of albimo squirrels have emerged,but they never lasted more than a couple of days.We had no black squirrels till a couple of years ago.
The 3 young squirrels all survived and are doing well. The population on my place needs to be thinned out,but I am hesitant ,for fear of getting the albino.
The last time I thinned the squirrels out,I took 67 in cages and 110s,this was off my deck and an oak tree 20 feet from the deck.
I guess for now,I will just wait and see what transpires.

If my feet aren't wet,I must not be trapping.

Time to get out the 22 Tom, then you can be selective of what you thin out!

Yep, I agree, Tom. A .22 to the noggin can be a very effective thinning tool, and can make for a really fun Fall afternoon.

LOL,I would love to use a .22,but I would be in jail within a few minutes. Neighbor behind me is 100 feet away,she called the police on my other neighbors grand children for laughing and having a Kids good time.Deputy told the kids --they didn't do anything wrong ,and to carry on as they had been doing.
I used to use a pellet rifle at times,but that was before the bad neighbor moved in.
