There's a couple large WMAs near Henderson that should hold some Greys and several Fox Squirrels.

Henderson is south of the Twin Cities about 45 minutes and 3 miles West of 169 on HWY 19. Before you go down the hill into the Valley, there's a big WMA (Ney WMA)on the right side of the road. The Ney Environmental Center is across the road. You can only hunt the North side of the road.

The other WMA is northwest of Henderson. Turn right onto County Road 6 and go 3/4 mile out of town. Turn left on the first gravel road after you get out of town. You'll go about 1.5 miles and drop down into another valley. When you come back up the hill, Vale WMA will be on your right. There's some really deep ravines out there so be careful.

First post so excuse me if this is wrong to ask an kinda off topic question.

Are squirrels tasty? I guess that could be a matter of "taste".

Are they like rabbit?

Sorry for the stupid questions guys.

Yea similar to rabbit, though I haven't eaten one in quite a few years. I've been meaning to go after them, but every time I find a bunch I am more concerned with the deer I am chasing. smile

I think most guys make them into a stew or use the slow cooker.

No problem Phooj.

From St. Paul, if you can get your way to 494 West, cross over 35W and continue to HWY 169 South, that will take you to the directions I gave above. From 494 to HWY 19 that goes into Henderson, it will be approximately a 45 minute drive.

Take HWY 19 west 1.5 miles to the Ney WMA. It will be at the top of the hill on the right side of the road before you drop into the MN River valley.

If you continue on HWY19 into the MN River valley, you will come into Henderson. Turn right just after the Shell Gas Station onto County Road 6 and head north out of town. As soon as you get out of Henderson, you'll take the first gravel road to your left and follow this through another valley. It will be approximately 1.5 miles of gravel. Once you reach the top of the hill, there will be a parking area on the right. This will be the Vale WMA.

Hope this helps.

Just go up to any ol' farm house out in the country and thier usually pretty good about letting people shoot squirrels...and squirrels is about it. Don't ask to shoot duck or pheasant without forking over some money...LOL

    • I'm awesome at catching fish in the US. I leave Canada to those who are not so awesome at fishing.
    • I was at the fishing show & had talked with the Aqua Vu staff.  Their new HD cameras look amazing!  I thought the pictures on the AV760 was great, but these are super sharp. They also stated that you can view them clearly in the direct sun light.
    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
