Nice!!! Some very pretty rodents for sure.

If you enjoy hunting please find a way to give back to the sport. Our children will thank you.

Re: Thanks Gary U (fox squirrels)

Nice squirel! i need to get some red foxs i see them but usually end up with greys, iv got a whole box of salted grey skins.. i see your 17hmr doesnt do as much damage as my 22wmr obviously because there heads are not missing haha.

Re: Thanks Gary U (fox squirrels)

Yea I use the 40gr tmjs they dont expand but yea they get messy like entire head gone messy... I still like a flat shooting rifle though the 22lr is like too high or too low nomatter where your standing I mean it works but the 17 or wmr is a much better guns.

Re: Thanks Gary U (fox squirrels)

This is the honest truth... I have shot over 100 fox squirrels since I started hunting in the late 70's. I have not shot a grey for years, not that Ive not seen them its just that I dont want to. Fox squirrels if you are looking for them head to Bedford county and look for farm land pastures with hickory nut trees and large trees boarding the fields, thats where they are at. Not saying you wont find them deeper in the woods. I love squirrel hunting more than anything else and spend alot of time during the second season hunting them. Im not one for stalking them. I just like to sit and let them come to me all day long. Fox squirrels like to leave the nests or dens later than the greys so getting in the woods before light is not a major factor. I have seen the most activity around 10 till 12 then again from 2 till dark. If you want big ones head to Mercer, Jamestown or Greenville. If you are close to Johnstown look me up and I would be glad to take you to some good spots in Bedford

Another area place that they like is cornfields with big trees on the edges.
