    I saw 2 jumbo fox squirrels the last weekend of gun season. Looked like better than 3 pounders with 2 foot long tails.

    Squirrels are rutting hard this time of year. They're fun to hunt when they ain't skeered

    This is probably what I need to do. All I do is sit and watch the squirrels play when I deer hunt anyways.

    Hearing that water rain down off limbs when they start moving. Gets me excited

    That reminds me when I hunted Fox Squirrels years ago in Southern Indiana. I'd go Squirrel Hunting with my Granddad, and those big 'ole Fox Squirrels would start to move around in early morning. Sometimes we'd go hunting after a good rain and could hear the rain dropping off the trees when they started moving.

    If you think the deer get stupid during the rut, head out to the squirrel woods right now. You'll almost need a shotgun, tho'. Hard to hit them the way they're chasing the females.

    I enjoy hunting them this time of year with a rifle. They are on the ground a lot making noise in the leaves, and you can see them from a good distance now.

    On my property, I've seen very few Squirrels the past three years due impart to the lack of Mast Crops. Late freezes in May seemly are becoming the norm. Not good if one enjoys Squirrel hunting. This 2020 season has been the poorest I've seen in my 55 years of Squirrel Hunting, having only harvesting five Squirrels.

    I’ve seen you mention this several times. We’re ate up with squirrels but our oak masts have been poor 3 straight years too. For whatever reason seems like hickory and pig masts have stayed solid year after year. Wish I owned the land I hunt on, I’d tell ya to come kill some squirrels.
