^As do chipmunks, we consider them and squirrels varmints. Chipmunks are difficult targets. 1/3 the size of squirrel and just as fast.
We had an overpopulation of turtles in our pond, they were eating entire trot lines clean in a couple of hours... Until I got my .17 HMR out there and started ruining their day. Heads are less than 1" targets out at about 80 yards. .17 HMR solved that problem in a day and we started to catch fish on the trot line. Pond smelled of dead turtles for a while because I probably killed 20 that day, but it was worth it to get some catfish.
