Fall Squirrel Hunt

I like squirrel hunting in the fall when the leaves are coming off the trees, because the squirrels are moving, both up in the bare branches and also on the ground. You can spot them from a ways off and plan an approach…. on the other hand they can see you from a long ways … Continue reading »

Calling Raccoons!

Many years ago I had an experience that opened my eyes to a new hunting opportunity that I’d not realized existed. I was out squirrel hunting in the woods of central Indiana on an overcast and very cold morning. Sitting in the shadows at the base of a shaggy oak as morning broke over the … Continue reading »

I did a lot of squirrel hunting last season and plan to do so again when the winter finally fades away: getting in both all-day hunts as well as the shorter outings before and after work. But with a few open days in front of me, I decided to get out on an overnight trip. … Continue reading »

Squirrel Hunting Tactics

In past I’ve shared several of my hunts for squirrels, which have taken place across North America. Fox and grays squirrels in the deep woods of the Midwest, and the tufted eared Abert’s squirrel in the rugged Rocky Mountain regions of the Western states. And even though these species are similar, the ways in which … Continue reading »

Wildcat Hunts Jackrabbits
