Tree rats are tons of fun. I used to have to walk on the other side of the tree from my dad (God bless his soul) which pushed the squirrel to his side where, ka-blam! I'd save the tails. Squirrels are where I was first indoctrinated into field dressing game.
I took my kids out last year. Funny thing! My 5-year old son saw no squirrels but lots of moose, tigers, and leopards. Keep in mind we live in southern WI. Good memories.
Thats funny! Its great the imagination kids have when they are little.
