Holy Crap! Don't think I've seen that many squirrels in my life, Reloder28.

Just a guess; was there a pecan orchard involved?

Always wanted to hunt tree squirrels. Never lived where they were legal to hunt. My hats off to you guys.

What O/U is that? What loads do you like? Normally a 22 user, but took a 20G out once a year or two back.

Never hunted squirrels much. Last time was about 1980 in Colorado. Took the ex and her kids out and got a bunch of Pine squirrels. Really small but were good eating. Keep thinking I want to do it here but unless you live in Bend, never see then here. Not a lot in small game in Central Ore unless you like jack rabbit. Some Pigmy Cottontails around but not a lot. Got the guns though. Mod 62a Win in 22 LR and an AyA SxS in 410.

Glad you started this, Phillip. I see some of the usual suspects have dropped in.

Squirrel hunting is the best. Too much rain and wind had put a damper on my season. Until today.

Gorgeous morning in the woods.

Got 8 on 10 shots, including a couple of long ones that had me patting myself on the back.

I love it when they fall from way up and WHUMP.

Not a picture. Just some ramblings on squirrels.

Was deer hunting the last few days and watched a jet black squirrel all day, which was a good thing as the deer sightings were few and far between. Have seen little clusters of black squirrels in other areas, but this is the first one Ive seen near home.
In sping I watched a very light phase gray squirrel, at first I thought it was white but in glassing it when it was near another one it was just very light gray. Wondered if it was age or just an unusual color phase. Sure stood out in the spring woods.
I wonder if the lack of squirrel hunters is leading to the color phases that stand out remaining in the gene pool.

This begs the question from a guy who’s never considered eating a squirrel....Do they taste like chicken?

Fall / Winter is the best for eating them?

No, they don't taste like chicken. They taste like rabbit, only with more flavor.

Fall/Winter is usually the chosen time because they are free of parasites and other bodies by that time.

I think they are my favorite meat, domestic or wild....

I've never stumbled across an albino squirrel in all my hunting years. Very cool.

Awesome, BKS. Never shot a white one. Saw a black one for a few years in the same pecan grove, even spent a few afternoons, specifically targeting it, but never got a shot.

That's one to mount!

It is at the Taxidermist and is supposed to be ready for Christmas. There is a National Wildlife Refuge in the south part of Arkansas that is covered up with black fox squirrels but this was the only albino one I have ever seen in the wild.

Someone else, maybe maddog, had a nice fox squirrel mounted, one of those raccoon looking ones..

BKS,

In case I ever find myself in the right spot, where do you hit a squirrel you intend to mount?
