As previous years went, any type of squirrel will count. No chipmunks. To be scored you at least need a picture of the tails. PREFERABLY a picture of the whole squirrel with the gun. Signups will run through the end of august and then I will make the teams.
If someone wants to sign up late, I am ok with allowing people in throughout the season, but if anyone opposes that let me know. The more the better, in my opinion. If your season starts earlier than september 1st, then go ahead and post your kills and it will be for whatever team you end up on.
The attached picture is a good example of how to take a photo.

Yes it is. I've used it the past few years for a couple hunts each year, makes it a little more challenging, that's for sure!

for those with seasons already started, post your kills. I'll attach them to your name and they will go towards your teams totals once we split up teams. My season opens sept. 1st. I'm hoping we have at least 15 people signed up by then, but we'll see what happens.

Is this where we are supposed to post pictures? Got the two grey squirrels about 4 days ago, and i got the red one the other day.










Counted.

Bocajnala 09-02-2012 06:43 PM

Yes this is where we post them. I'm gonna wait another week to see if more sign up before making the teams. Good job, first kills for this year!

My season actually opened in May, but I'm gonna hold off hunting rats 'til Jake NoShoulders leaves town. I've already seen 2 copperheads and 4 velvet tails since the drought started. I guess they're looking for water. We got about an inch from Isaac's remnants, but it didn't even kick in the wet weather springs-ground's like Quikrete again.

Bocajnala 09-03-2012 12:11 PM

Those timber rattlers are pretty snakes! What dates does your season run?? Opening in may, sounds like it might be a long season.

I try to get up under a nut tree before daylight to hunt greys (rats, not aliens :alien: ), and Jake's everywhere right now!

I'll give it a week, and then, :fighting0007:, snakes or no snakes.

CRhodes 09-06-2012 10:26 AM

Supposed to be 48 Monday morning; maybe they'll be scurrying around and I can pop one.

Bocajnala 09-07-2012 06:17 AM

I went out last saturday, our opener, for about an hour in the AM. But it was still very hot. Tomorrow the high is 68, so the morning should be perfect!

Now Weather Underground's saying 48 for a low Sat AM, with 7 mph winds. I'm itching to get out there, windy or not. Gotta be hickory trees in the bottoms with rats in 'em...:s3:

CoonHunter8522 09-08-2012 08:06 AM

I've been going every day it's been pretty warm here as well I can't upload pics from my phone so once I get around a computer I'll upload them

I couldn't find my camera this morning, but it didn't matter, 'cause the only grey I shot had wolves.

I'm gonna wait 'til the second frost.

tex3797 09-13-2012 07:02 PM

Tex3797, hunting in the WV mountains for the bushy tails using my Model 55 Marlin 20 Gauge Bolt Action, should have decent time to hunt this year since the deep mine I work at is only working 3 days a week due to falling market, so happy hunting fellas!
