How about most tree rats instead of size,
We will be after Fox Tree rats for size.

Gotta have a ending date!

I will twist up a New string for the winner.

I just tossed this out there to see if anyone was interested? So we can set this up however everyone wants to?
Duration: 2 or 4-weeks?
Most Kills Wins?
What else do we need to add to this?
Places: Only one winner? Multiply winners?
Prizes:
Flemish Bow String, Thanks BK
Anyone else have something they would like to throw in the pot?

might be an unfair advatage with the thick winter coats on em' up here. their a lot bigger. i saw two rather large fox squirrels in a tree up above me when it was only 10 degrees out. one squirrel turned to the other and said," what's that nut doing out here, it's freezing outside!" then the other one said," should we bury him where he sits or carry him back to the nest?"

Do you want to actually hit them with the arrow or just run it real close to their nose?The shaft and fletching going by so close sucks all the air out of their little lungs and they suffocate. Doesn't tear up any meat.

Just saying, that's how I usually do it.

Tree rat contest??? Great Idea. Extra points for video. Great Idea!! How bout extra points for any shot below 32 degrees. Due to the "I'm so frozen I can hardly pull my bow factor???"
How bout 3 winners, smallest, biggest, and most kilt.

Fine by me, I may even try to whack one or two, but if not, y'all have fun.

Do flying squirrel count for more points?? They are smaller, faster & harder to hit flying thru the air!!

Man,y'all are amazing to me - if you can hit a dang squirrel with a bow.
I wish I'd thought of it sooner - it'd be great if you could show the kids at the youth hunt this Saturday what a real archer looks like!

I'll throw in a letter opener for one of the winners.

Longbowdave, if your season ends 1/31, maybe you can get started? Or maybe you just need to move to Georgia!

I may have to go somewhere else to hunt. My yard squirrels know to hide when I have a bow in hand!
