Have ground squirrel problems? Here is a quick way to hunt them with nothing but a 2-liter bottle of water.
A ground squirrel can quickly become a major problem for homeowners, gardeners, and farmers alike. They can destroy crops and lawns if not taken care of.
Rather than sit around waiting for one to pop its head out of the ground for a square shot with an air rifle or .22, try a different approach like this kid. He demonstrates that all you need to hunt ground squirrels is a 2-liter bottle filled with water.
I have to admit this thoroughly impressed me. I thought he was going to pour the water in and stand back with that gun, waiting for the sopping-wet ground squirrel to come tearing out of its burrow. This is just not something you would expect to work that well.
I can only imagine who came up with this. It was probably some poor farmer driven half-mad by ground squirrels tearing up his land. In a desperate attempt to drown them, he noticed that they’ll pop up right into the bottle, and his problem was solved.
