I can't wait. I haven't squirrel hunted in probably 4 or 5 years. I got my grandpa's Marlin 39A when he passed this spring so that is my motivation to get out this year!

A Marlin 39A is a great gun, I had a 39A mountie that my father in law bought new in 1966, like a moron I gave it to my brother in law but did tell him never to sell it....unless its to me.

When I see a few like that in the absence of a good bit of "finer" cuttings, it usually means the squirrels "just tasted" those, and didn't like them, or they were still too green. That half and that whole without any green, they look like something left over from last year?

I love to hear nearly whole hickory nuts like that fall to the ground on a still morning! Then shortly followed by some scrape-scrape-scrape-scrape-scrape-scrape-scrape-scrape-scraping, and another big piece of nut hitting the ground! \:\) It's to squirrel hunting what a gobbling turkey is to Spring Turkey hunting!

Just not the same when the turkey's not gobbling; just not the same when the squirrel's not cutting hickory nuts.

I agree. Growing up we described cutting like this as squirrels "just checking them."

No walnut trees in the immediate area that I am aware of.

They are hickory nuts, not filled out yet. See the lines for the sections of the outer hull?

Yea I really look foward to the fall squirrel season opener too. The fall is a fantastic time to be in the woods and the squirrels provide an excellent hunt opportunity and challenge. I've chased bushytails for over 50 years and it's still a blast. I think I've missed 3 or 4 opening mornings but never a season.
