Squirrel season starts on Monday. Any squirrel hunters out there? What does everyone out there hunt with? Shotgun or .22? I know its not deer hunting but it is better than sitting on the couch. I can not wait to get out in the woods.
I like to use my S&W .22 revolver. It takes a steady hand but it is very easy to lug around the woods. I have been seeing lots of squirrels at my property in Midland County and I plan on killing (not harvesting) a few for dinners during deer camp.
i'll use my 16 gauge as long as the foliage is thick.....then i switch over to my .22 rifle.
as far as it not being deer hunting.....well, i use it as a means of scouting my deer hunting areas. it worked very well for me last year.....ended up harvesting a 7-pointer and a very respectable 8-pointer.......both during bow season......both on public land in southern mi......both shots under 10 yards.
Tried to take my 2 sons squirrel hunting opening morning. Got about half way to our hunting spot and blew a fuel line which blew the whole day. Now we have to wait for Saturday. It was hard enough talking the old lady to let the boys take one day off from school and me from work.
