Last squirrels I shot matny moons ago, The kids ate everyone of them before I could clean up the knife etc outside. Wife fixed them in BBQ sauce.I asked the kids awhile back why they didn't save me any.Said Mom said it was Venison?
Got plenty around here but mostly young. What happens to the adults I don't know.
Maybe coyotes have learned to climb big straight trees or our resident Bobcat.

Then get a woodchucks to take care of the squirrels?


Then get Bill Murray to get rid of the woodchucks?

Prolly easier to just kill the chipmunks. Will they not go to a trap with peanut butter on it or similar?


Bill Murray has reached official geezer status, his gopher safari days are long behind him. He's probably posting under an incognito moniker on these boards such as Carl Spackler or Sandy McFiddish. I'd find a Honey Badger.

Here in the mountains of VA, anything with an engine that sits for any duration will inevitably see a host of critters taking up residency.

I've become a master at keeping rodents out of the trailer but all other equipment, it's a never ending battle.

Try the bucket "O" death. Five gallon bucket filled half way with water, cover water with a couple handful's of sunflower seeds. Give them a little ramp to go up, usually a trail of seeds. They dive in for the seeds not seeing the water and drown. This really works. I have caught many with this method.

This^^^^^.

We have our trailer in a campground situated in the middle of a state forest. One winter they made a mess and had nests in our kitchen drawers! We found their entrance holes and sealed them up with aluminum sheet metal. Have not had any more inside for the past several years (knock on wood!).

Squirrels are abundant and we got rid of most of them using the bucket method. Still put out the bucket once or twice a year and get some more. You will be amazed at how well this works! Seems we have fewer each year.

City boy here. We don’ t have any chipmunks but we have squirrels. The only time they chew our cable wires, although this doesn’t happen very often. If I throw them nuts to keep them fed.
At campgrounds I only shoot a camera at the chipmunks while sipping on a beer. That’s just my entertainment.
But this thread is one of most entertaining I’ve followed in a long time.
I guess we’re all getting cabin fever.
