    No crazy expensive camo is required for any game. A plad shirt breaks up your body outline and animals are all color blind lol. A call is required but its an art to use one I have learned. We hunted with a friend who was a master with a call box. He called em in right to us and as long as you dont move, they wont see ya.

    Dad and I used to drive the county roads on Pott co where he was raised. He knew all the hot spots with pecan trees. No we weren't road hunting, we would see one and exit the truck and walk around the tree to move the squirrel so one of us could get a shot at the head. Always shot em in the head so not to waste any meat. I used an air rifle one year, very effective. I could practice with it in my backyard hitting small rocks in the grass on the edge of a flower bed that had those small white rocks in it. Essentially putting the rocks back in the flowerbed from 50 yards away LOL
    It was a tack driver

    I've considered getting an air rifle. I played with one of those airforce air rifles a few years back. I wouldn't mind ponying up the extra cash for one.

    Those tree rats have been trying to invade my house for years. A head shot with a pellet gun works well.

    Consider the .22 cal air rifle rather than the .17 cal.
    Either will work if u hit a squirrel in the noggin but bigger seems better. It may not be as accurate though so may wanna research that.

    Easier to skin when the tree rat is still warm.
