The squirrels got so bad in my woods that I took a day off of deer hunting last year and went out with a friend and killed about 15+ of the little buggers in one afternoon. I don't think they've ever blown my cover, but I have had them practically crawl in my lap before. I really do hate it when I hear a twig snap which makes my heart start racing, only to turn around to see a squirrel...

I dont think I've had one mess up my hunt before but one did make me crap my pants.

Im just taking it easy in my climber not hearing anything and this squirrel comes out of no where and lands on the tree right next to my shoulder. If I could have got the barrel in his mouth I would have blew him away.

One particularly good area we hunt in Kentucky also has fox squirrels and a couple years ago a few of them barked endlessly at me while on stand for deer. At season's end I took my new (to me) Win M490 .22 out there and whacked a couple of those buggers. Word must have gotten around about my revenge, because the last couple years have seen those fox squirrels left to be much more quiet.

I have to admit they can be a problem, but some times I just love to watch them, it's like a circus act. All part of nature.
