Re: SGL for Squirrel Hunting please
Try and be in the woods at legal shooting time. I kill most of mine between sun-up and 11:00. As far as locations go, most folks aren't gonna be real helpful, myself included. I can tell you this; you should be able to pull off the road just anyplace there are woods and kill a squirrel. The trick is to find the better spots. I look for areas with lots of food like oak trees or hickories, and in my area the hickory trees are really putting down some nuts this year. I like a little thicker woods with some grape vines and/or ground clutter, but not enough to prevent you from seeing 40-50yds or so. Find someplace like this next to a cornfield, and you have the potential of a good hunt. When you're checking it out, look for den trees, squirrel nests in the trees, acorn or nut cuttings on logs and stumps, and of course tracks if there is snow.
I approach hunting them just like I would if I were hunting deer. I follow the orange requirements, but no extra. I like to sit in a shaded area if possible, like under a small pine. Be quiet. Be still. Movement will make them skittish, and even if they are near you, they will move away instead of coming closer. If you are using a rifle, make sure you checked to see if it is still zeroed. If you're using a shotgun, make sure you are using proper shells. Squirrels can be tough, and leftover dove loads won't always kill them at some distances. It may be overkill, but I like high brass #6s. These are just my thoughts. Good luck!
If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.
