LOL - memories of the back in the day hooligan stuff come to mind. definitely different times back then. 

 

Never legally hunted them, only went after them when we were kids - "borrowed" rowboat, with alder stick taped on to a dip net and break action 177 for bullfrogs - dusk was a good time cause theyd start booming as it got dark. roasted legs over a fire once on shore. 

 

Those break action 177's got a workout around Christmas break - squirrels & tweetie birds lookout, the bean cans (can of beans & bread over fire for lunch) would take a pounding too. Finger & thumb would be grey from loading those pellets. LOL.

LOL. You guys must of grown up in rich families! I had to make my own bow and arrows at first. Dad had a daisy B.B. gun but it would’nt kill anything heck we could catch the bb’s! But when I was 7or 8 I got a kids fibreglass bow as a gift and store bought arrows! The old squirrel population took a beating after that!!! But I grew up in the Kearney lake area. So what is now Bayers lake, Clayton pk west, Dunbrack St,Larry Utec, Parkland dr Cresthaven estates along with Hemlock Ravine and what’s now Blue Mountain Birch Cove Lakes wilderness area and Kingswood subdivision was all woods. Hunting squirrels and birds quickly turned into grouse and rabbits and other eatable things. Wow some real good hunting and fishing areas gone now.
