View Full Version : Whacked some squirrels

Went out this morning to a friend's ranch and shot some squirrels this morning. Shot about 2 dozen and one 4 foot rattlesnake.

The 50 grain VMax at 3800 fps whacks them apart.

I think it's dead.

Did you poke it with a stick to make sure?

sounds like that would make a great squirrel snake soup :)

what did you use to kill the snake?

I'd blast a snake without thought if and when I come across one. I consider it revenge for all the rabbits it ate.
Oh and I'll blast the rabbit too ;)

I shot a northern Gray squirrel in the Catskills with a 300 win mag it took a semi circular hole of about 4 inches of its 6 inch body. There was a thin piece of hair conecting what was left. Your shot took me back there immediately:D

The snake probably tastes a lot better than that flea bitten varmint.

snakes are awesome creatures. how could you kill such an awesome predator?

squirrels on the other hand..

Rattlesnakes don't bother me at all but the rancher has asked me to kill any rattlers, dogs and coyotes that I see on his property. He's the one who owns the land so I do as he requests.
