Rifle kill, but that’s about the size they sound like, especially when they’re behind you.
Also, how’s come 2 squirrels can play grab ass, running up and down a shagbark hickory, sounding like they’re dragging a logchain, and the deer don’t even give them a second look, but I can shift my foot ever so slightly, and they go on red alert?
Out west we have those little Douglas squirrels. Once they find you in their tree they start this endless chatter and drop junk on you. I was in camp and had two different pine cones dropped from A hundred feet up by those varmits.
I hate those eastern grey squirrels ! Nobody believes me but one day I was out in my yard working. Every 20 minutes or so I saw a squirrel come around the side of my garage and just look at me then run back. The fourth time I walked around the far side of the house and snuck to the garage main door that was open. There were 2 grey squirrels loading up on bird seed. They saw me ran around in circles then finally out the door. I believe that other one was standing 6 but I fooled him. I bet he got a good beating later .
