    I guess it could be considered as a perfect head shot

    Right between eyes from 10 yards

    And this one as almost perfect butt shot 

    Squirrel was running away on top of the tall oak tree

    I was 20-25 yards away but squirrel made one deadly mistake

    stopped for one second – it was enough to take a good aim…

    Shot placement for chipmunks and squirrels doesn't matter that much 

    Head shot, butt shot… no chance to survive

    I'm just surprised how much POI shifts at a short distance, I mean at really short 3-5 yards

    Missed couple chipmunks, was hitting way too low

    Will have to work on that, usually I zero at 20-25 yards for squirrels

    The close shots are the hard ones.   I've hit low many times until I started working on that specifically…..I still hit low at close range sometimes because it's tricky getting past the mental image of holding the crosshairs say 2 or 3 mils above the animal's head.

    You are right, it's counter intuitive

    You would expect completely opposite at the short distance 

    I'm planning to set up few targets at 3 – 5 – 7 yards and work on may aim point

    Often I don't even have time to adjust scope, looking for squirrels 15-30 yards away and suddenly chipper pop ups

    Have to move fast, have to train on that more, switching between ranges
