I think 12ga is overkill; I like my 20ga with birdshot.

When my liberal friends get all freaked, I tell them this is basically
the same combination of weapon and ammo that Dick Cheney shot his
hunting partner with (i.e. not all that lethal to humans).

P.S. I "shoot to scare" most of the time.

Speaking of the little devils...we had a warm spell and it brought the grey and red-brown bushy tailed varmints out.
Bruno got a heck of a w*rkout.
These "lyrics" are now burned in my brain.

Didn't think of the ending until last night:

You better run squirrel,
Or you'll die young squirrel

Great ending Khan. It reminds me of the song below. BTW, I got a big bag of bird food and another bag of food specifically for squirrels at Wally World today. DH just filled all the feeders. Life is good for birds and other critters at the Purron estate
