I'm sure if you took a drive around your area and found some woodlots with oaks, walnuts, and other mast trees you will find squirrels. Ask the homeowners if they mind you hunting squirrel. I can't imagine anyone will tell you no, except there are always a few.

what powerstroke said. Otherwise check out public state hunting land that has hardwood trees.

Yes I know the season ended. If you would look at Phooj post you would see that he is looking for a spot come September.

what is tree rat?

Another word for a SQUIRREL.

Last year made it out twice. Rat hunting is the start of an addiction to hunting!

A couple years ago, while out phaesant hunting we shot a large Red squirrel that was about the size of a house cat. I had a buddy call his taxidermist to see how much it would cost to mount it, and he replied:

"I don't mount squirrels!"

.....I was kind of dissapointed.

If you find the right farmer with a corn crib..he probably will let you clean the squirrels out of there. They can raise havic on corn cribs.

I have squirles in my yard that are the size of a small cat. They are huge. A few of them have pushed their luck when I'm shooting bow in the back yard and they are only a few feet away. It would be cool to have a big one mounted up I think it would be cool to see in a house!

yea....i'm not too familar with the variety of squirrel types/families.

All I know is that they don't even crack my top 10, probably 20 animals to get mounted, although that one was HUGE.

maybe if I saw an albino one, that would be pretty sweet.

Yeah i can see how they would. But when you get brought up hunting them all your life and get a few black ones or a unique one like that, its an accomplishment! haha and dont get me wrong i hunt everything there is to hunt around here as well! not just tree rats.

I love squirrel hunting. I got some great woods around me that are full of mature oaks and consequently, lots of squirrels. I also hunt state land up north that holds lots of squirrels. This last season I got my limit 3 or 4 times. Lots of good chewing there!
