Default City squirrels VS forest squirrels

Outside my home these city squirrels do nothing but taunt me but that's ok. These city squirrels would be no competition for me. The squirrels i hunt in the country are very different than these city slicking squirrels.

Sept 15th is almost here

ours starts sept 1 here, cant wait

i squirrel hunt a lot and its always frustrating trying to explain to nonhunters that the squirrels they see in the park are NOT the same as you see when you go in the woods trying to hunt them. They look at me like im crazy and think its just terrible I hunt them, like i just casually walk thru the woods and the squirrels are milling about nonchalantly and im blasting them willy nilly lol

I enjoy squirrel hunting. Since I do not like to clean or eat them, I avoid the hunt.

I love to squirrel hunt but for some reason just dont seem to get out and do it. I get too caught up in deer hunting season which starts in the beginning of Oct for archery. Sept is usually so hot here in Va. and I like it to cool down when I go for squirrels. I will have to make a point to get out with my old Winchester bolt action and take a few tree rats. Love me some squirrel gravy!

Same here in regards to the heat of Sept. I usually wait till at least the last week of Sept. for Fox Squirrels then after the first frost in Oct. for Gray Squirrels due to them getting warbles. I have never seen a warble in a Fox Squirrel so far, been hunting them 52 years now.

After they've been hunted a few times by humans...forest squirrels are more cagey than city squirrels.


Yet again???

ole hunter seys after a few are killed in the backyard the will get just as spooky as a sq in the woods. the woods sq that haven't been hunted are curious and will circle around through the trees to look you over

MY village squirrels did damage to my 100 year old house trying to make a new home behind the gutter. Conservation gave me the blessing to "thin" out the offenders. The first 6 were easy kills and gravy. The next 8 actually were getting smarter by the day. My wild squirrels in the woods are much harder to hunt, but the village squirrels after a bit of watching their friends disappear at the "corner" house have caught on. The repairs were made to the house, so the shooting has stopped. They still do not hang out very long in my yard which I am fine with. AL
