Hey guys, I went out this morning and got four squirrels with the 22 lr. But one of the squirrels I got a squirrel that was a lot darker than the other three. I never had heard of fox squirrels in my area before.

I thought it was a grey, but it had quite a bit little brown in it and wasn't sure. All of them except one I shot off hand at about 30-40 yards.

ya some grays have some orange in their belly hair. fox squirrels have orange in their back and face hair too. and they are usually bigger bodied than greys.

You'll know a fox squirrel when you pick it up. they look like squirrel-zilla.

click at your own risk... there's some squigglies showing on this pic:

that's a LARGE red fox squirrel laying next to my marlin 882SSV. if youve seen one of these rifles you will understand just how large this guy is.

I saw his bigger brother today in my treestand. If legislation ever goes to vote to allow a 22lr pistol while archery hunting, i'm voting "HECK YES". those little tree-ninjas tormented the heck out of me today. one came right up my tree and i whacked him with the nock of my arrow. he jumped down and read me my miranda rights.

I let a large fox squirrel walk Friday, he was the first I've seen on that farm. Took a gray instead. Squirrel-zilla is correct!
