    The video said "warning extreme violence" in the beginning. I must have been watching a different video, I didn't see any violence at all.....extreme or otherwise.

    Pretty lucky shot. But violent? I saw a clip once of a large rodent being hit with a 55 gr. Ballistic Tip going almost 4400 fps out of a 6mm-284. That was violent.

    I can't believe he would take such an unethical longer than 20 yard not full broadside shot... What if he would have been off an inch he could have left the animal wounded... tisk tisk....

    I couldn't resist......LOL


    That is freakin sweet!!!!!! Awesome!!!!

    I just wish I could get a squirrel to sit still long enough so I could shoot them with the bow. They see me and they're outta there like lightning.

    He must have been shooting a Rage, didn't even get a passthrough on a squirrel.

    Hahaha ! Funny you said that ... If I had a dollar for every squirrel I've shot at and missed , I would retire ! I think the the little boogers jump the string pretty bad ! Lol ! That has officially made it on my bucket list ... Squirrel with a bow !

    I have these nasty little grey diggers around my house. The dig under the foundation and drive me crazy. I get them with the bb gun, but I think I might try with my bow.

    Apparently you haven't hunted southern CO yet. Those things will position themselves within bow range and chatter up a storm until you leave his tree lol. Think I'll get some of those judo points Gregg was telling me about lol

    My brother knocked one off a log at 75 yards one day; it ran through camp, and all three of us started chasing it. When it jumped off on a log and looked back, he teed off on it, and nailed it. When we got to it, the arrow had gone through the skin on it's throat, and it had all 4 paws on the shaft, and it had its teeth clamped down on the arrow.

    I carefully grabbed the arrow by the fletching, and slid the animal off onto the ground; it ran off and we laughed so hard we had tears streaming!

    Great Vid, Gentlemen!

    Best of Luck,
    Jeff

    I second that. Stupid things wouldn't leave me alone last year, they let me get so close I hit one with a stick.

    I was talking more about the ones in my neighborhood. I've killed over 400 of them in the last 5 years and they still keep showing up every week. Killed every one of them with the pellet rifle, they're usually in the trees or flying like crazy on the ground so bow shots are out of the question. Up hunting is a different story, I could shoot a dozen a day easily, but tend to not shoot the bow unnecessarily when I'm elk hunting.

    There are a lot of arrows stuck in trees at a walk through range near me. I think they were trying for a squirrel because there are no targets the way those arrows are pointing.

    I'd take that squirrel and arrow and mount it in the same position with it stuck on the arrow.

    My buddy and I were shooting his bow about 10 years ago. My buddy shot at this squirrel and shot it straight through the butt and out of the mouth and stuck to the tree. It rotted up there. Ha
