Well, broke out the ol' air rifle, put on a ten dollar scope and sighted it in.  Put a couple pecans on the fence and sat on the back porch.  Fifteen minutes later a good lookin squirrel came up to em, I took aim and made one clean shot which dropped him cold after he ran across five or six fence boards.  Had no luck gutting and skinning him, he ended up looking like hamburger meat.  :( .   Anyways, I'll try again, because it sure was fun, hopefully I'll have more luck next time after picking up some tips from this site!  
PS-Any advice to a newbie squirrel hunter with a air rifle would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to the world of airgun squirrel hunting! It is rough. Congrats on the kill. Follow this link and watch the video on skinning squirrels. It is an easy way to do it.
If you'd like, go to my bb and post about airguns. We have some Airgun Experts over there.

Welcome, JLaw!  Squirrelhunter91's advice is right on the money. I do the cut under the tail routine and it has been the way to go for me for over half a century. Dirt was new, back then.
