The first rule of shooting grey squirrels, there are no rules. Classed as vermin and can be shot at any time. Usual rules apply regarding permission and safety etc.

your land, give yourself permission to shoot and keep the pellet within your boundary, all ligit, also bear in mind that as non-native species if you catch one in a trap its illegal to release it

grey squirrels are an alien species (non native) keep within the normal legalities as with any shooting and fill your boots with the fooking tree rats :thumbs:

What he said.

 

Ive shot no end in my back garden. One thing id say tho, is be wary of your neighbours as some neighbours get a bit twitchy if they see you with an air rifle and may phone up the old bill saying theres a terrorist with a sniper rifle or something.

Keep it that way! Squirrels are responible for much conservation damage - like the loss of the Purple Emperor butterfly because they have a great liking for the pupae.
