Fall Squirrel Hunting

Fall Squirrel Hunting

Sneaking through the forest in fall is a rewarding hunting technique that gives you the feeling you are outwitting and ambushing your prey.

 

A squirrel will always feed with it's back to the trees trunk

 

This brand of squirrel hunting requires woodsmanship and a keen sense of hearing and eyesight. A silent approach requires stalking skills -- concentration on slipping silently through underbrush, calculating each footstep, selecting the best silent route through the forest -- while searching for game. It's not an easy task, but it's very exciting and rewarding. It requires agility, strength, coordination and attention to details as you silently glide along the forest floor.

This time of year the tomatos have been made into sauce. Nothing like squirrel instead of meatballs in that....

I hunt 'em with a bow and arrow. But then sometimes they get stuck to the tree...

Howdy there Jason

Squirrel hunting sure is fun, first started hunting them, when I was 6 years old. One of the things ya need to remember when a hunter decides to use stalking. You need to know how to walk through woods just as the animals that live there do.

Stalking is the only kind of hunting that I do, no matter if I'm hunting Squirrel, Bear, or Deer. I hunt with Bow, Muzzleloader, and Cap and Ball six shoots. Even when Bow hunting, I use stalking as my way of hunting.

Squirrel hunting I use a 32 caliber Kentucky Long Rife,

 

a 50 caliber Hawken for Deer, and a 54 caliber Hawken for Bear.

Hunting with a camera can be quite a bit of fun.
