FULL CHOKE FOR SQUIRELLS?

I HAVE BEEN SEEING SQUIRELLS AT A LONGER DISTANCE WOULD A FULL CHOKE INSTEAD OF A MODIFIED BE TOO MUCH FOR SQUIRELLS?

Re: FULL CHOKE FOR SQUIRELLS?

nope. just pick your placement on close in shots. I normally try to aim at the nose

if you bought it, a trucker brought it

I've always used a full choke. Tree rats can be tough to kill. Headshots with a 22lr is way more fun... to me anyway.

I use a turkey choke and Winchester 5 high brass for those 50y shots.

Re: FULL CHOKE FOR SQUIRELLS?

IMO, full choke is the best choice if you are targeting squirrels. I've been hunting the same spots for years, they're not that easily fooled. 30+ yard shots are the norm, with #4 high brass. Occasionally I'll tear one up at a closer range, but it beats the alternative of crippling one & losing it.

Catch & release is for guys who don't know how to cook
