New .22 w scope :?:

Poison Peanuts :?:

Beacon NO, I am not goning to use smoke bombs :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks

Mike

Ok Ok but they work! On A 1200 foot dam. I don't really have a choice. I had a couple of dogw that just loved to catch Ground hogs. They would shake them and break their neck. If you are going to poison that lets the dog out.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

John, the ground squirrels don't burrow undergound like gophers and moles. They just dig holes everywhere. I checked the website for the propane rodenator. It looks like something I would like to see too. Those pictures of the ground blowing up all around that guy are hilarious :lol: :lol: looks like "Caddyshack".

Think I will go with Ralph's idea and try a shot gun...

Jim, if they contain the right amount of lead, and they're put in a kroil marinade bucket, and left to set on the front porch for a few days, they could be served along side of Country's famous sundried style. :lol: :lol:

Thanks everyone

:)
