Anyone here ever tried to squirrel hunt with their compound and flu flu arrows? Just wondering how difficult it is and how successful you've. What time of the year is best?

Looks like it would be a blast !!!

I've done it before, but it ruins quite a bit of meat and tends not to be a quick/efficient death using field points.

I'd think the blunt tips would be the way to go.

seems like a waste of time when a 22 rifle is much more efficient

I have done it a few times. We just ground a few field points down to a blunt tip. Me and a buddy each got one. But if you go this route, trust me only shoot at them on the ground or be prepared to lose a bunch of arrows lol
