We have squirrels in these parts that live underground, and eat roots.
They also chew wires under the hoods of vehicles.
A few years ago, getting ready to leave with our Hummer H2, wiper squirters weren't working, nor the passenger side headlight ??
Open hood and find a nest built out of the hood insulating pad, and wires chewed up.
Ok, we are at war !!
I got a squirrel 2 weeks ago, but managed to crawl off. That's when I figured out I needed new rings on my springer.
Fast forward to about 30 minutes ago, I'm standing in front of the sink talking with my wife about the paint we bought for the kitchen, and I happened to look out the window, and saw, what looked like a hose hanging out from under my old Dodge dually.
Then, all of a sudden it retracted, up under the truck???
Honey, watch the Dodge, and see if a squirrel bolts..
Grab Hatsan, cock, load, and sneak out the side door. Wife says, it's on the driver side tire.
Got into position, and she said it went back into the motor.
Got a good hold on the corner of the house, looked, blury....
Turn adj objective shorter distance, clear !!
Look at tire, and he pops back on it.
Suppressed air gun is sure quiet !
Squirrel falls dead next to the tire !
Ha !! One less wire chewer in the hood..
I like this pellet gun ! I wouldn't want to be shot with it.
It's powerful !
