    Been seeing lots & lots of "Small" Gray Squirrels. Anyone else seeing lots of younger Squirrels thus far, in their hunting areas??

    Went last night and saw one. Very quickly I remembered why I haven't squirrel hunted in early season in many years. Man it was hot. I was drenched. Wife and daughter had soccer practice so I took my boy out. For some reason he confused sitting still with sitting down and playing samurai with a stick.

    I didn't find any hickory nuts or pig nut. checked out a pine and walnut stand and no luck there. I left scratching my head. Might give it another try for a morning hunt though.

    I am starting to think this year's Squirrel Season isn't all that great! Went this morning, got into the woods early, but only saw five Squirrels and they were in the Pines. I thought there were more Hickory Nuts & Acorns but that turned out not to be the case. I did shoot one Squirrel but couldn't find it anywhere. I looked carefully for 45 minutes but the area of my woods is so "Trashed-Up" by the 2009 Ice Storm & under growth so thick it is impossible to hunt Squirrels in most of my woods. My Brother hunted another area of our property but had no luck only seeing two Squirrels and he said they weren't big enough to shoot......."I MISS my hunting spots in Southern Indiana"!! There I could always count on atleast three Squirrels per outing.

    Evidently I was not the only was getting hot. Here's how my boy came out after a decent walk through a corn field.
