What's your go to squirrel rifle set-up?
I usually shotgun em but I'm thinking about changing my ways. What set-up does the OB use?

Here’s my new one.


My old one is a Marlin 39 lever action with a 2-7x32 red field. Squirrels fear it, and it has taken many.

Good gun rabbit hunting. .22 for a sneaker and 410 for a runner. Had one and sold in like a fool many years ago.

They’re so much more fun to hunt with a rifle.

I have a Henry lever action with a fixed 4x scope. It kills em.

ETA: headshots only! Unless you’re using CB’s in the yard then anywhere in the squirrel is acceptable.

No scope but fence line they hang out in is not too far for open sights

My setup is a cz 455 with a Nikon p rim fire scope.

Pretty accurate.

Btw, I want to upgrade the iron sites on my HENRY 22 - anyone done this? I think I’d need a gunsmith to go it.
