Any squirrel hunters out there? When I was younger I would really hunt them hard. Now days hardly at all. Just no burning urge even though I enjoy going after them.

Hunting squirrels with a good dog is loads of fun. I have not done to much of it but always was a good time.

Not many acorns here this year but right now the squirrels are cutting hickory nuts, pine cones and black gum. There were 7 gray squirrels in a black gum in my yard this morning.

I see I am not the only one that does not hit them to hard. Forty years ago it was much bigger deal. I remember times you were concerned that someone would get your spot opening day or even be able to find a place on public land to park. Lots of hunter actually went to squirrel camp. Hunting sure has changed.

Yep. I don't go after them much at all anymore. Several reasons I guess. For one thing I'm the only one here that will eat them and it's not worth the complaining or cooking two separate meals. Plus I worry I'll run out my deer if I spend too much time in the woods squirrel hunting. Never use to bow hunt back in my squirrel huntn' days and deer season was a couple months away. Now I hardly gun hunt for deer and do most of my deer hunting in the early season. Lastly no fall opening for squirrel season took some of the excitement away.

Trapper I feel about it the same way. Due to age and injury I cannot bowhunt much anymore but I do some and I do not want to mess that up. The near round season has taken a lot out of the excitement.
