I have a Marlin 81 TS .22 LR with a Tasco 3-9x40 that is a great one. It rides in the truck if I am going out and about or when I am bird hunting. If I am specifically hunting bunnies or squirrels I grab my Winchester 72. It is a great walk about rifle.

Marlin 917V 17HMR with 20gr. Game points. Pentax Gameseeker 4x-16x-44mm scope and form 1 suppressor. Head shots only with this rig, but that isn't usually an issue as accurate as it is.

Cool picture!

I have never hunted them. I have thought about trying it this fall, just to get out in the trees more. Are squirrels any good to eat?

Sandhillhunter: They are great eating just boil them before you fry them and they will be as tender as anything you have ever eaten.

Young squirrels are tender enough to chicken fry with no other preparations. Old squirrels can be tough. There are several ways to get around that. Lots of recipes on the net if you look around.

I used to love squirrel hunting. I wish we had more on this end of the state.

Surprised no one has mentioned an air rifle. Beeman R10 works great, for me.

Starting in the late 70's I have used a KDF (Kleinguenther) K22, double set triggers, Leupold rimfire low rings, Burris 6X AO mini scope, with RWS Subsonics.
Was going to post a photo, but lost the pictures when photobucket went down. I duplicated that setup with a Mauser 201 which is essentially the same rifle and will post a photo of that one. My never needed back up is a Remington 581/541 I call the "wannabe". It's a 581S action and bolt that is trued and threaded, 541T barrel, threaded, rechambered with a D2 chamber, 541S trigger, Leupold Low rimfire rings, Burris 6XAO mini scope, pillar bedded Bishop stock.

Thanks GC.
I have a weakness for fine 22lr. Always looking for the next best Squirrel rifle that'll probably only shoot paper. LOL
