I think I'm about the last squirrel hunter in NY. Haven't run into anybody else out hunting squirrels in 30 years. We still have a limit of 6 per day and it's completely unnecessary considering how few hunt them anymore. About all anybody's interested in these days is deer and turkey.
Nope, your in good company. I'm from Central NY I hunt squirrel with my Cur dog and rabbits/hare with my beagles.
