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.

prairiedog555 Just bought a new Thompson Center .22 auto (essentially a 10/22 with upgrades) for squirrel season. I have never really hunted them, just shot them while bird hunting, but I have a new friend who is an avid squirrel hunter.
Especially since the birds have disappeared here in KS and I need some more outdoor time.

Re: Squirrel Season


My wife would be almost dead from starvation before she would eat squirrel, so I would camp in the winter, hunt'em, and eat'em there.
but a few years ago, when I quit camping, I switched from a rifle to my EAA bounty hunter 22/22mag and have fired at hundreds and hit none. but I have scared a bunch of'em.

when the mornings get cool in the fall, I can hardly wait to go scare squirrels.

Re: Squirrel Season

I heard a squirrel barking just yesterday morning and I had visions of stalking the woods with a good looking rifle of some sort. Every time I see a squirrel squashed on the road lately I think what a waste!

Ours is rated at 1300 fps so we'd be all set. I just might have to visit family. Still have a lot scattered all over Texas. Radiating out from Tatum, Panola County.

Drive down to Texas. Open season all year long. ;D
And air rifles with at least 600 fps just became legal for squirrels last year.

Squirrel Season

Anyone looking forward to squirrel season? My son and I both got the new Gamo Bull Whisper Bone Collector .177 pellet rifles and are anxious to give them a try.
