I went last week. Ended up with 4 the first day and 3 the next (6 per day limit). It was so freakin hot and humid. Got in the woods early in the morning and got all 7 before 10am each morning. By 11 am the gnats were gone but the yellow deer flies were out in force, and every tree I sat against seemed to be infested with big black ants. I might have hunted longer each day but by 10 am the activity had died down and having dead squirrels in my pouch when its that hot didn't seem wise. So I quit by noon and got them to my truck, gutted then, and got them on mostly melted ice.

We still have another week to go but I'm going to sit that week out. It's not getting any cooler and the gnats and deer flies bite right through Deep Woods Off.

The last thing I want this time of year is to be traipsing around the dank buggy woods looking for rodents. Given the chance, I will sit in the shade and try to shoot chucks off someone’s beans or corn, but getting such a chance is a rare occurrence around here. Most won’t even let you hunt deer, that can eat 10# a beans each in a night, for fear a wounded one might step on some of them.

It's not all that fun, but it's still better than working.

I suppose so, but that pesky “work” business hasn’t been a problem for 12 years, so my frame of reference is a little stale. Nice to be able to pick and choose the days you well, do anything actually!

Subject to War Department rules, of course, but I sleep with the Secretary……

Just wanted to say that in Alaska it's open year around (no closed season) w/ no limit for all squirrel species. Not that I bother to hunt them . . .

Had a tomcat that liked to killand eat them.

At my place it's always squirrel season. Have no choice, they'd run away with the place if I didn't control them.


I would have got him too but a Dad Blam snow flake hit me in da eye....
