What are some of the unusual ways to hunt that you have developed? I was taught to hunt squirrels about 10 years ago or so by one of my friends. We were going through a drought and there weren't as many leaves on the trees at the time, so we would float down a slow moving river in a canoe and shoot them with contender pistols with 22 barrels on them. If you can shoot a squirrel out of a canoe with a 22 pistol, you have made a good shot! I also have used my marlin 39 lever action out of the boat, and that was fun also. It is really peaceful and they just aren't looking for you from the water. It is still one of my favorite hunts.
