Please elaborate on this trick . . .
Go out before daylight, and sit within easy range of a nut tree- preferably on the east side.
Sit a bit, then shake a small box of stick matches- just a quick shake. Wait a minute- repeat.
The squirrels think someone is cutting their nuts, so they pop their heads out.
I used to use .22 shorts (hard to find now). In the dense morning air, they are no louder than a handclap... and don't scare the squirrels.
Shoot all you need, then pick them up and go fishing.

got a few good spots around here-
a thicket of hickory and walnut trees
makes for some easy pickings.

They just sat there? what type of 'Weeds' was they eating? lol
But they are good in Stew, hell what isn't?
Thank the Irish for inventing the crock pot!
3/4 cup cooking oil
2 cups corn hominy
2 sweet peppers, cut
2 medium onions
6 carrots, cut up
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1 1/2 cups flour
4 teaspoons salt
Cut jackrabbit up into serving size pieces.
Pour the oil into a large kettle or Dutch oven and heat until the oil is smoking slightly.
Put in the jackrabbit pieces and brown on all sides.
Now drain off the extra oil.
Add a little water to the kettle and simmer for two hours
Coyotes are crazy smart, we had farmers willing to pay good money
for use to get them off their land and away from their sheep.
Never got one.... Took a pop shot @ 150 yards once at one
thats about it...

you hate it lol
Sorry about your GF...
I must be lucky almost every girl I dated liked to shoot,
and hunt. Hell one even slept with a little 380 under her pillow.
We never went to bed angry!
Crap forgot to tell you there is a disease that turns their livers blue.
Check the liver if it looks funky don't eat. I forgot the name of the disease
might have to google

I talked to my buddy's father the other night and he said an hour is too long and will leave the squirrels with too rich of a smoke flavor. 20-30 minutes of smoke, then the rest the final wood burn down. He said you can catch the wood right before all of it has turned on a glow (you'll be able to see a few spots of unburnt wood in the glowing coals that are releasing a fine smoke), put the squirrels on then, maintaining 250 degrees for an hour or a little more. Then check to see when done the way I said earlier. Don't forget the oil, with a nice salt and peppering. Or whatever spices you like.
Smokers are easy to make out of an old gas grill by the way. The rectangular shaped ones.
