Success at last

Was offered a chance to go hunt squirrels. And was it a blast. And it was my first harvest ever. So now that I've got that under my belt, hopefully that will help me in rifle season!

Re: Success at last

scthstn congratulations!!! I too went out yesterday and got my first squirrel! I have hunted the past 6 days, except for sunday, and have gotten nothing. I go out yesterday and see more squirrels then I have all year! I would've gotten my limit but decided to only harvest 2 just to see if I like squirrel. Another reason is I was alone and my two buddies and my dad have been going out and have yet to get one, so I plan on taking them there at some point! So last night I I brought these two squirrels home and attempted my first skinning... Surprisingly i didn't do to bad!

Trapping goals:
1/5 Red fox
0/5 Gray fox
0/5 Coyote
8/20 Raccoon
0/15 Muskrat
2/0 Possum
0/0 Skunk

Re: Success at last

Good job fellas!! I have been huntin' them for 31 years and never take my limit. I limit myself to 2 in an area per day as I want too leave some for the next guy/gal and breeding population. It`s a good thing for the game.

A limit of tree rats is a very good day. Been hunting them for better than 30 years and hit my limit only 5 times. Go get em
