SQUIRREL HUNTING

squirrelIn the woods “Ole Bushy Tail” will play hide and seek; him hiding you seeking. He always keeps a limb or trunk of a tree between you and him. He can be spotted in early morning and late afternoon.

Where are the SQUIRRELS? In nut rich woods. M.D. Johnson says, “Memorize this: buckeye, beach, black walnut in the bottoms, hickory half way up and oaks on top.” Look for stumps with shucks around them. Their sense of hearing and sight are excellent so the SQUIRRELS can eat and watch for their enemies simultaneously.

Crow Hunting

crowFor the die hard hunter there still is some small game that be bagged. That is the common Crow until April 15, 1996. There is an extended hunting season with liberal hunting regulations. Hiding in a hedge row between two fields on Fridays, Sundays or Mondays, two hunters are calling or using an amplified calling device. Sound or imitation calls can be used and there is no daily or season limit. These are the only migratory bird that can be hunted with a rifle. A .22 long or .222 rifle with a scope is sufficient. Also a shotgun with a modified choke and 7 1/2, 8, or 9 shot are used.
