Title: Huntin Tomorrow
Post by: Justin Gilmer on September 14, 2012, 12:29:20 PM
Hitting the woods tomorrow and I'm not leaving without a limit of squirrels!!   :tickedoff

Yeah right!  That was my alter ego speaking.   :uglystupid2

I'll just be happy if I can find one for my dog to tree!  I normally only get a couple and the limit is 10.  Anyway, I'll post results.

Roxy treed 6 squirrels. I was only able to see one of them and it got in a hole before I could get a shot off. Lots of places for squirrels to hide right now! Anyway she seems to be making progress!!! I would like to put some in the game bag soon though....

You can send them to me and I will post them or you can start a photobucket account and upload from your phone.

Thanks!  I've been taking her out every chance I get.  I think she's going to make a pretty good squirrel dog.  She LOVES to hunt.  I can't wait for these leaves to fall off so I can see the squirrels.  She's been hunting pretty far from me and the squirrels hide by the time I can get to the tree.

It will get better after the leaves drop.  :twisted:

That's what I'm hoping for!  I normally spend the rest of the year deer hunting when the leaves start falling, but hunting with this dog has been so fun I think I'll try to get her out once a week for some squirrel hunting.  It's kind of addictive when you see that the dog is understanding what you want and is finding game for you!  When she can actually use her eyes along with her nose I think the squirrel population is going to be in trouble.....  ;)

I went out a couple of hours this morning and popped 3 with the HMR, 2 fox squirrels and 1 gray. My pal I went with figured we should meet up in town at 9:00 this AM because it was close to frost temps. I thought we should start earlier, but what the heck.

Of course the squirrels were out and running before we left town.  :sad:

Never take a rookie's advice when it comes to hunting!  :-X

Oh yeah, he got one, blew up half the squirrel and ended up with a couple of legs go go along with the one he got a while back, the same day I quit early and had 5 in the bag.  :roll: ;D Dang rookies!  ;D

What is the limit on squirrels in Iowa?  Seems like it was 6 if I remember correctly.  Here in Missouri they have increased the limit to 10.  That'd be a bag full!   :shock:

You are right, Justin. Iowa limit is 6, Illinois is 5. You are lucky to have so many squirrels in MO and a limit of 10.  O0

The limit is 10, but I never come home with that many...   :tickedoff :-\ :'( I'd call 5 or 6 a great day!

Didn't see many this morning. I got two with the .17 HMR, brother got one with his .22.
