    Here are some pics, from the winter, of a few squirrel trips my brother and I made....We've been running a caplock .32 and caplock 12ga, but now we're in the process of building a couple custom Flinters for this coming season. Blackpowder squirrels are alot of fun.

    MMMM... fox squirrels around these parts get as big as cats and tough as shoe leather. They are good for squirrel and dumplings though!!

    Thanks for pics and video. My dad's Blue Heelers tree on site not on smell. I liked how yours retrieved your squirrel back. Dad's dogs think you shot the squirrel for them, and start eating immediately after the kill.

    kool stuff, most excellent dog, thank you for sharing.
    Ive been wanting to try squirrel hunting with my modern 209 .50 cal muzzleloader with a very light load, sounds like fun times to me.
