to much time on my hands
Too bad there isn't an urban season for squirrel.

There are quite a few in my neighborhood, but nothing like my friend close to downtown Columbus.

He lives by Victorian Village. Has trapped an relocated 20 squirrels in about two months. It was one or two a day for the first weeks.

No predators. There is good tree cover and above ground wires, so not many get tagged by automobiles.

We had an over abundance of rabbits in my neighborhood. Can't hunt or trap them as "nuisance", ODOW suggested Coyote urine. If my lab's urine all over the back yard doesn't keep them away, don't know why coyote urine would.

Earlier this year, by dog was practicing for the greyhound track!

Well... as the current President as the Ohio Hunter and Trapper Education Instructors Association I'll stay on the right side of the law.

Don't think I didn't consider how nice the rabbit would taste (feeding on lush urban gardens) on the grill.
