Ben has been trying to get video of a squirrel kill with his blowgun for over a year. He finally got his footage this afternoon. Ranchdog has one of these blowguns so any squirrels in his vicinity need to look out!

No squirrels in our neighborhood. I did try it on a coon. No kill but he got kinda POed. He got over that after a short conversation with a .22.:biggrin:

That thing is a monster. If baiting wasn't illegal in Missouri, I'd guess that he had spent a lot of time on a corn pile!

Forgive my ignorance here.

Are these darts expanding or poison? What sort of distance are you when shooting the squirrels?

The darts have a small broad head. The kill range is inside of ten yards. Ben just uses his to pass the time while waiting for deer and turkeys in his blind.

Probably work well on those shrimp you're raising, too. They should be as big as squirrels by now. ^_^

The shrimp didn't end up as big as we hoped, but they were still decent.
