Tree rats. Roof rats. Nature's little speed bumps. To some, squirrels are just annoying animals that make a lot of noise when you are out deer hunting. To me, they are some of the best eating and most fun to hunt animals out there. Now, I realize there's nothing sexy about squirrel hunting. You aren’t going to see a squirrel head mounted above someone’s mantel. Squirrels do, however, offer a quick and sporting hunt that doesn’t take much special equipment—and you can find these critters most anywhere. I have often wondered if it would be possible to get a whole limit of seven squirrels if I spent the whole day out hunting for them. I came close a few weeks ago, and probably would have made my full limit if I had started earlier in the day. I went out at around 1 p.m. and stayed out until dark and managed six squirrels. I can’t help but think I would have gotten that seventh if I had been out there all day.
