Post by: 9mmronin on October 23, 2006, 08:58:44 PM
Hello everybody!! 

did a search on squirrel hunting and found this place.  Only been hunting 3 times in my life (1 pheasant ranch, 2 failed attempts for deer **froze my a$$ off**)  But I want to learn small game hunting!!  Just put together a ruger 10/22, and it needs to get out in the woods!!  Always looking for advice/ tips/ stories/ where to hunt / and BS !!!!

p.s. I'm from metro detroit area (nw. oakland co.)

look forward to learning from you!!

Welcome to the pile, pull up a log by the fire, toss one on the fire and sharpen a stick( you'll see what you might need it for eventually). Best advice for beginning squirrel hunter is:
 A: learn to enjoy the hunt with an empty game bag
 B: keep trying and you'll eventually connect

 I did a couple of years trying to even see game but the area was rather over hunted. Then I got permission on some seldom hunted land and suddenly I was bagging squirrel, rabbit, and deer on a regular basis. Persistence is the key.

 As for advice on BS, your amoung masters here ;D

Welcome 9mmronin from another Michigander (Ann Arbor area) the Pile will either make you or break you. There actually a bunch of great folks that share a love for the sport we call hunting. The difference is most of these folks use a Bang Stick where I prefer a Sharp Stick  in the eye shooting style  O0

9mm, welcome to the gang! As you can see, you are already surrounded by some rascals of ill repute.  :wink:  ;D Yes, you and your rifle should be in the woods whenever possible.  O0
