    bow and arrow is a good idea,what about a high powered pellet rifle,or a 50 cal. blowgun?
    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave in a well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways,bruised,battered,and totally worn out,shouting "Holy crap.....what a ride!"

    As for primitive... Slingshot!!!... my preference is a pump air rifle... not ideal if you're shootin 'em up in a tree.. actually not really a good idea at all.... but around me, they are jumping all over... I get like 3 or 4 running across my back deck at a time... I'll sneak out the front door, sit in the side yard, take careful aim, and WHAP, headshot.

    Baton?! Do Sarge, Crash and I look like baton kind of guys? We're routy touty. We use levers and gears and buttons and switches. It's all very mechanically and electrically complicated. Even some smoke and mirrors but I can assure you there are absolutely NO batons! Hmmmpf.

    Oh, wait....you said button......uh, never mind.

    Some friends of ours have a pet squirrel, named of all things Nutty Buddy. He sits on thier shoulders and eats out of thier hands. They tried to set him free but he would sit in a tree outdise of thier door and jump on them whenever they left the house. True story.

    I had a neighbor that did the same thing until the squirrel bit her and she had to take rabies shots. True story.

    We have a Grey in the back yard which is safe (as long as he keeps minding his manners). The little diggers though, they just destroy to much stuff.

    I've been hauling the diggers off all summer. All you have to do is set out an unbaited trap and you'll catch them. They are dumber than rocks.

    we have several chipmonks , couple of red squirrells, and greys plus momma racoon and momma bear with her triplets that frequent my back porch, along with all my birds, nothing more funny than getting my butt chewed by a squrrell hanging off a feeder as i am trying to fill it, the other night we had to put a 3ft by 4ft pice of paneling in front of the bay window to stop little brown dog from barking all night and what do i see on the window in the morning? muddy bear paws trying to see over it, i think she was asking where the bucket of kfc was, man i love living here

    nothing wrong with pet chickens. but i did notice ken put up a picture of one of those "pets" on the grill with some foreign object up his and noone got offended.. strange folk.

    no need to ban me. If you dont want me here I can leave of my own accord.
    sorry if I seem brash, but that pissed me off.

    Not quite sure what you are so upset about. You start a thread about squirrel hunting. Ken, who has many times (and obviously unknown to you) said that he treats squirrels as pets - hence the "sick" comment. He also posts a picture of a chicken being roasted with a can of beer inserted (prompting the beer butt chicken comment) BTW you can buy beer butt chicken kits in many places around here. Then Winnie makes a comment about chickens - noting that she has posted many times about raising them and calling them "her girls" - another bit of personality quirk that was obviously not known to you. (kind of happens on forums when folks get to know one another). Then seemingly out of the blue - you take offense - get po'd and talk about being banned. Honestly - lighten up a bit.

    It was a Joke! There's also been a bit of giggling going on about who actually has the ban button. If I take offence to a post, believe me you'll know about it.
