Cool picture!  Wish we had some of those black squirrels around here.  I wouldn't mind getting one of those mounted.

:oops: I wish we had some of the brown ones here!Our squirrels are like 10" long including the tail!We have no season so we shoot them all year long.We don't eat'em only shoot'em.Not much of a challenge,with two people one on each side of the tree and one gets a shot. 8)

Wow no black squirells we are over run by them. I wish we had more greys then the blacks. There plenty fox squirells(big red ones) also we have been actully seeing the greys blacks and fox cross breeding. I have a black squirell on the land i hunt that has a half white tail white ears and feet. Im after him but havnt seen him since the season opened. Shot a big fox that was half grey last year was going to have mounted but kids unpluged frezzer in garage.

If you're going to take it to the taxidermist, I'd recommend taking a shotgun.  Those little pellet holes don't show up through all of the hair, whereas a hole from a .22 might.  Definitely don't take a head shot!!!!!!  And definitely don't take a .17 HMR!!! :shock:  :twisted:

hey bc.... you could do a head shot with your 17, and just mount it with the head going into a hole of a tree.......
