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.?

    • Like he said. After opening weekend there may be few fish left.  Here's a little view why! 😉        
    • Welcome to the forums.   There is another company here in Minnesota that gets used a lot called Mattracks that you may want to look up. What size motor do you have? It takes a pretty good size motor to turn these tracks and get any speed out of them.   https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjohMjdlYbjAhWPGM0KHSFVAFoQFjAAegQIBxAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mattracks.co%2F&usg=AOvVaw0l1s0-KJl2XMVmGU069TQt  
    • Upsize to #2 mepps. They cast much farther than the smaller sizes. With that being said, most (if not all) the trout have probably been caught out of the lake. If there is any trout left to be caught, I’d make sure to be there early in the morning as soon as the park opens.
    • So I am new to ATV’s and was doing some research on tracks for ATVs. I live in North Idaho and for winter and spring we have tons of snow and mud to deal with so was thinking tracks might be a good idea. So I found this site helpful https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems and  local for me but wanted to get others opinions on what they use? I noticed they have two brands one Camso and one Kimpex what do y’all prefer?
    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.
