Default no luck with the little squirrels

i was bored and took a walk through the woods with a .22 thinking i was going to shoot me a mess of squirrels. well the 7000 i saw during deer season i guess decided they were not going to come out of their nest with me around. i only seen 3 or 4. oh well im sure i will do this again when i have a little more patience. its amazing i can sit all day waiting on a deer to walk out. but if its a squirrel im waiting on 15 mins is to long

We will have to go sometime. It takes an old man to teach patience.....

When a bunch of us go squirrel hunting, at least one fellow carries a shotgun. When they start jumping, only a shotgun gets the job done.

have to go to the mast crop trees to get the tree rat. and it pays to walk like you a couple of the playing quick scuffly stop walk slow stop scuffle in the leaves again and so on plus a squirle call helps and a yote yelp and hawk sounding call will cause the to call out and chatter so you can pin point them as to where they are at
