I know that it was a big deal for us to go on a squirrel hunting down in Montecello, KY on Lake Cumberland because we got to hunt fox squirrels. There aren't any fox squirrels back in the mountains, only grays. That's when I noticed that a fox was a heck of allot easier to kill than a gray. Plus the land was flat compared to hunting back in the rugged terrain of the mountians. Nothing like a bunch of hillbillies making a special 3 1/2 hour trip just to go squirrel hunting!!!!! ;D


I shot at Jacksonville (stone bay) twice and once in Hawaii

Oh, I know about fox squirrels.  They'll sit and let you eat a sandwich while you're getting the crosshairs ready.  Gray squirrels on the other hand....... :knuppel2  The fox squirrel population is pretty low around here though.  They're so big and dumb, they don't last too long around us KY Rednecks. ;D O0

Ks, I guess you've figured out by now that you're not a legend in your own mind anymore when it comes to shooting. ;D  It must have been a crushing blow to your ego when you figured it out. ;D ;D ;D  Bloodtrail isn't that far from you.  Maybe he can give you some shooting lessons. O0  If you're around the KY area near the end of summer, stop by and I'll let the boy give you some lessons also. O0 ;D

Ohhhh SNAP! ;D ;D ;D Straight to the heart, eh BC? :roll: If I can swing it, you can bet your keester I'll be in KY around the end of Summer. :knuppel2 I've hunted grays and know what you mean. those suckers are built for speed and know how to utilize it.

Hos, I know what you mean about making those long trips just for some squirrel. I still have the contact information (and syubsequently permission to hunt) for a pecan orchard that goes untouched year after year. The owner told me you could look out into the hills around the orchard in the early AM and see swarms of squirrels migrate down into the pecan trees. One of his friends is a CO and was offering to give me a depredation permit so I could take as many squirrel as I wanted.

The owner also said they had to do that every few years with deer to. Last time, he brought in 6 hunters and in 3 days they harvest over 50 deer from the orchard alone. Once the hunters had their freezers full, the rest went to Hunters Feeding the Hungry. O0

I never made it down there, but the 2 hours getting there would definitely have been worth it. ;D :evil: O0

So, what time of year do the squirrels start hitting the pecan orchards ? Will they hit it for blossoms, early summer for green fruits,ect ??


 I ask cuz the oldest daughters BF has some hunting property near a major orchard in central Missouri. He seems to think He might be able to get me access to it or maybe some of the neighboring smaller orchards. Some may not be orchards at all, but small groves in someones yard or back 40. This in a pretty rural area, where you don't turn a key for less than a 1/2 hour drive and a yard might be a 3 acre pasture.

What's most important hunting deer with a pistol is being able to put the bullet exactly where it needs to go. Get yourself a pistol and proper ammo with enough umph to do the job, and make SURE you can place every round within the vitals at the distances you will be shooting.

Some trips to the range is advised if you want to take home the venison. You have to be familiar with what you are hunting with. A few boxes of shells is a cheap price to pay if you really intend on taking home the bacon.

I see a lot of dead deer and hear a lot of hunting stories at work. We pistol shoot quite a few deer some years at work, deer injured or sick. We are shooting them with our sidearms and issued FMJ ball ammo, so it's most important for the first shot to kill the deer.

We all know folks that only shoot their deer gun when they see their first deer.  :roll: No range time or sighting in with the ammo they will be hunting with.  :idiot2  :crazy2  :uglystupid2  Most of those folks are just going for an armed walk in the woods or just cripple game.  :tickedoff

MO, the guy told me that they start coming down in droves by mid August. he said they love it when the almonds are grown, yet still green because they're still soft. They'll continue through the rest of the season, but not in as large quantities.

Hos, the area where the guy's located is in south east KS. I met his mom at a farmers market and then him over the phone. He said there were pecan and apple orchards all over the area and they all had squirrel problems. I remember trying to set up an official GPS gathering one year at his place. As with the hog hunt, it petered out. His name is Steve... His area code is 620... And the last number in his phone number is 7. :roll: :evil: ;D ;D ;D

I actually did give his contact info to one of our members. Haven't seen him around for 3 years. :-\ Fool me twice... O0 I tell ya what though. If I ever get back that way, and I REALLY hope to, then I'll send ya an email and we'll see if we can't set something up. O0
