Fox Squirrel Taxidermy

Last month I shot around 20 fox squirrels with my Volquartzen .17 HMR semi-auto. That gun is so much fun!

This guy, with his totally black underside, is like no other squirrel that I have ever seen so I had to have him mounted.

    That is a beauty of a fox squirrel. I have seen one almost like it on my parents land and a couple more that were solid black and one black with a white face. To bad it is illegal to kill them in my home county.

    He looks like some mutant space alien squirrel from the outer rings of Saturn. I just can't find it in me to say he is good looking. But he certainly is DIFFERENT.

    Interesting piece of wood, too. Goes well with the unique squirrel

    Doh! Well, I guess I got a lot smarter on this particular quest... I didn't know they existed. Maybe next time I'll find something you don't know. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
