So I have had it with the squirrels. When I sit in my stand at any given time I can see no less than a dozen squirrels at a time. One of the little rodents chewed thru the seat strap and my new melinum stand. My little yapping dogs watch out the front door at the squirrels, they know I will not let them out till there are at least 4 squirrels at the feeder. This past week there have been again a dozen at a time at the bird feeder, my littlest dog who is the most adamant squirrel hunter is going to have a seizure if there is constantly that many squirrels. I don't want to use a firearm as that would be unnerving to the adjacent property owners. I will use the pellet gun on a few. I ordered $80 worth of squirrel traps I am going to start by thinning the herd in the yard and then work my way out in the pasture. Does anyone have any suggestions for bait? It will have to stick to the trap pan that will be vertical on a tree. I was thinking peanut butter should work but who knows.
