Hey Len, Hunt Yet?

Haven't seen the results of your hunt yet Len. How did it go? Did you use any of our expert advice? Was it a bust?

db and others, thanks. I only went out for squirrels once after I started this thread. But next year I will be starting to hunt already in fall...unlike this year. We had so much snow on the ground this Jan/Feb that it was a bit of a job to get around.

Great ideas!

You don't need no stinkin gun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just go to the park with a bag of peanuts or pecans and a big stick and sack. Lure them in with the nuts, hit em with the stick, put em in the bag!

Re: How Do You Hunt Squirrels?

Rem 597, tweaked a bit.

bedded into a boyds lam stock, lighter trigger by way of a new hammer. Exact edge extractor. 4-12X40AO Leuy. .5at50yrd groups with minimags. I got a good barrel.

Longest head shot, 91 yards. I use whatever rest I can find. Trees, knees stumps etc. Most shots are from a seated position with the occasional standing with a sapling for a rest. If I see five, I bring home five. Weather play a huge factor, if it is windy stay home, hard rain, stay home. If it is quiet, cool and overcast. Hit the woods they will be moving. Squirrels are much smarter than people give them credit for. The ones in the wild woods are nothing like the ones in your backyard.
