I've hunted squirrels with dogs for years now and still enjoy it. We've treed them with every breed imaginable too. Right now my best squirrel dog is a Bluetick Coonhound. My daughter has a good treeing cur and we have a couple of Mountain feists that can get the job done. It's one of the best ways that I've found to hunt with other people and dogs for the purpose of hunting together and enjoying it at the same time. Besides that there are plenty of squirrels in every part of the state and large tracts of timber aren't necessary. It is a win win situation!
I've never considered hunting Squirrels with a dog. Hunting my old Squirrel Hunting spots in SW Indiana, never once heard of Squirrel Hunting with a dog, by other Squirrel Hunters. Must be more popular down here in Kentucky then in Indiana.
I haven’t had a squirrel dog in probably ten years. I have competition hunted squirrel dogs coon hounds and beagles. I’m getting a cur pup in the spring. I’m ready to get back at it! Squirrel hunting with a dog and Turkey hunting are my favorite in that order.
