Anyone into Ozark squirrel hunting?

Recommended Posts

I've read a lot of good stories on hunting in the ozarks. Has anyone done any squirrel hunting this year yet? If so, what are you stories and pics?

I used to do a lot of squirrel hunting! But now days my poor abused body can't take walking in the woods anymore, it was great fun to sneak thru the woods just as the sun was coming up and try to get close enough to the tree rats to get a few. Squirrel and Dumplings!!!!! Nothing better!

Wow! That is awesome.

Is the ozarks as packed with squirrels as they say? What part of the ozarks do you recall being the sweet spots for you?

Last weekend I was fishing at Lake of the Ozarks and saw a BUNCH! There seems to be a good acorn crop this year so anywhere should be good. Any place with oak trees would be a good place to start. Good luck!

Do they allow hunting at/near lake of the ozarks? Looks like the lake is surrounded by cabins.

Loz is surounded by houses. You could try around Mark Twain lake, there is COE land around there, you just have to watch out so you're not in a state park. Seen a lot up that way too!

GO CARDS!!!

Im itching to get out this year to try some squirrel hunting. When do the leaves fall off the trees and when do the ticks die off? What other precautions do I need to know about...ie. snakes, bugs...etc.?

    • Nice bag of fish there Duff!   I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike.  Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though.  Horrible conversion rate.   The bite is still on reaction baits for me.  Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait.  Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to.  It’s been weird with all the short bites lately.  I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait.  Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed.  I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em.  I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them.  We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area.   The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed.  Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed.  Bad photo but better n nuthin.  
    • I like the walnut one.   Crack the shell, add some water, wrap it in a wet paper towel, it germinates, keep in a sunny area, and then they show these magic walnuts.     I think they left out about 15 years.  LOL.
    • Finally, had a decent day.......or shall I say hour. Last week was a bust, one 3ish fish in 4 hours. I target bigger fish, so just avoiding the skunk can be challenging some days.   Just let out the hound and had a smirk appear on my face, I see It's full moon out there. That always helps. Got out on the water at 3:00 today, missed 3 out of 4 bites right away.   Changed up my retrieval speed and cadence and it was on..........for a few minutes. All my action occurred within the first hour of my four hour stint.   4 cookie cutter bass....... 3.87 lb 3.94 lb 4.12 lb 4.16 lb   Spot on spot, the two 4's were back to back. I'm running cranks.   Good luck out there. The Fattening is coming up soon.
