Those squirrels are pretty pesty but fun to watch chasing each other all over the place. But when they spot you is when their no longer fun to watch. They flick their tail and bark and that's a royal pain. When they get in a tree that's close to me like about 10 yards or so they look directly at me and I sit there motionless and then I quickly make a motion like I'm going to grab them or make a motion like your going to fight and that usually scares the junk out of them and they take off and shutup. USUALLY.

In my opinion the only way to hunt squirrels is with a 22 cal. rifle. Much more quiet so the others come out quicker. Easier to clean and eat. Try a call.
squirrels are fun.

yea our season ended last night. i was planin on goin but my girl had a real bad toothache so i stayed home with her. so im done for this year. the only thing left to do is hunt turkys in the spring but i dont have anywhere around here to hunt them. hogs and squirrels year round but nowhere around here to hunt hogs. so its pretty much just squirrels and fish for me till november.

Hey at least you're getting to hunt! I've been stuck here in California working for the last 5 weeks. Hope I get home to hunt the last two weeks of deer season in MS. Anyway, those rats can be tough in the late season. My favorite tactic is to take a really accurate .22 and ease around taking long shots before they know I'm around. If you see several, just sit and shoot; waiting to retrieve several at one time. Just be really careful to mark them all so you don't loose any. Good luck with that venture.
