How to build the ideal squirrel shooting set-up

First it was the ‘bird-table of doom’, where Charlie lures in rats and squirrels to meet their doom, so he can protect local songbird populations. Now he has industrialised, enlisted the help of Jaf Jefferson from the South Somerset Ferreters and set about ridding a whole wood of grey squirrels. Jaf builds a feeder that holds 15kg of peanuts, plus a hide for two people overlooking the feeder 25 yards/metres away. It’s curtains for the squirrels.
