Here's a clever gun hunting technique mountain men like Daniel Boone used to shoot squirrels.
If you were a mountain man hunting in the woods during the 19th century, you likely carried a muzzleloader rifle that used round ball bullets. It was a suitable weapon that worked for most big game--squirrels were a different story.
Shooting a squirrel with a projectile from a muzzleloader would turn the small animal into a pile of mush.
So, mountain men had to come up with a way of hunting squirrels without shooting them directly. Watch the video find out their clever solution.
