Dang tree rats destroyed my tomato crop this year. I've let them procreate for far too long it seems. The wife has deemed them as untouchable pets for years, but I think I'll have a freezer full come this fall.

It's funny because I don't have any in my yard. This feeder is about 500 yards from my house and they live off of that feeder I guess.

They live trap easy if you got some time for the ones that escape your shotgun.
Never developed a taste for squirrel.

Squirrels and dumplings is one of my favorites. Wrong time of the year to be eating em though they get pretty wormy.

No need for a .22-- Am waiting for my Sheridan 5mm Blue Streak to come back from the shop where it got a complete going over and new seals. Had it since '92 or so and it has 'done' a bunch of pests, from squirrels to grackles, to the crap machines that would sit on my boat dock (geese and ducks). Done a few other critters too. All it takes is 3 pumps for a squill or grackle, 5 max for anything else. Got an OLD! Browning version of the Redfield 3/4" tube scope on it and it's deadly.

Let's see. An 8 grain pellet moving at 1650 or a 32 grain CCI Stinger moving at 1640. Not to mention I don't have to cock my 22 and load every pellet by hand. I'm also accurate and deadly at 100 yards. And last but not least, I'm not paying $500 for a pellet gun.
