Anyone hunting squirrels? In the past I have spent my fall chasing deer and waterfowl, but had never given much thought to squirrel hunting. This year I'm planning to make regular trips into the woods dedicated to squirrels. It seems like a lot of fun, and should make me a better all around hunter.
What are your preferred locations and methods during the course of a hunting season? So far I've taken one short trip with no squirrels seen. The area had a few scattered beech trees, but I don't think enough to hold any number of squirrels. My plan for now is to hunt slowly through stands of oak and beech trees, maybe stopping for 20 minutes or so if the area looks good. Am I on the right track? Thanks for any reports or info.
