I shoot them all year round, the Christmas thing, isn't that for game shooting?Open season on Grey's 24/7/364 Here.No shooting on Xmas day.
Those that try to steal from my garden bird feeder are usually Quickly
EX squirrels owing to PCP.== Are they unmentionables ??.. O.D.
I hope the best for you, Sheriff John. You sir, have my respect for keeping on under such conditions. And I agree, if one has the chance to go hunting, do it!Missouri's season opens the 27th. Got out of the hospital four days ago, still fighting pneumonia a bit. Oxygen tank and possibles bag don't want to co-exist at the moment. Old guy advice = "If you have a chance to go hunting and don't take it, one day the chances are over. GO HUNTING!"
While I yet lived in rural Okla., my property was overrun with squirrels. Never been a fan, they're just fuzzy-tail rats to me. Would sit on my doorsteps with my pellet gun and shoot them as they came to steal the food from my dog's dish. Then would throw them across the road for the feral cats (with which the area was also overrun.) So not to worry. The varmints weren't wasted, the cats ate good and stayed out of my trash.
Here and as of the last few days, they are mostly eating on what I would call the large buds that look just like fairly large flowers up in the poplar trees. I noticed some leave/flower things falling from the poplar trees while I was waiting for a decent shot. After I shot two squirrels from the tree and went to collect them, I noticed those flowers on the ground. Then later on while searching for more squirrels, I found some of those buds/flowers on the ground under popular trees that had been there for a few days in a different set of woods, but no squirrels. They must have cleaned them all out of the trees and moved on somewhere.What are they eating on ? We're possibly 10 days/2 weeks behind you, don't know. Two raiding wife's garden do not count. Been seeing a few really young fox squirrels.
Well, to be honest, for many years I wanted a .32 ML squirrel rifle. Finally got the Crockett and found I had mixed feelings about it. Then after finally finding the proper sight combination it all came together. I was also sometimes having difficulties dealing with the small .310 RB due to my old bumbling and numb fingers, but it appears as if I have, for the most part, learned how to deal with that. Now I am happy with the Crockett Squirrel Rife and for my vision, it works great on squirrels. Just have to get a bit closer to them. But hey, that's part of the fun, eh?Hard to find a squirrel rifle better than the "Crockett". I consider them grand rifles for little stuff.
Will do. Season closes here on 6-15 so we have to get it done while we can. No doubt as the warmer weather progresses, the squirrels will be cutting/eating on different things. Lots of gray squirrels here this year, once again.I’m in Maine turkey hunting right now but anxiously awaiting PA’s squirrel season in September. My main rifle will be my kibler .36 but I’ll also be using my recently acquired .32 Crockett. I appreciate your updates on your spring season. Keep them coming!
