I'm with you. Our early squirrel season starts on 9/1, but it is usually too hot, and the trees are still fully leafed out. I prefer mid Oct. here in New England. I love squirrel hunting with my Flint lock .32 caliber Carolina Squirrel rifle. I may not get as many squirrels as I would using a .22 rimfire, but I sure do enjoy my times in the woods with this gun, and if a get a few squirrels so much the better.
