Finally got to go squirrel hunting this morn. had a vet appt at 8:00, so i knew i would have to be out of the woods by 730 to make it. went to an easy access spot near my home. shot squirrel 9 at 7:24. spent about 10 minutes looking for 10, but no luck. killed 9 on 11 shots with a clean point blank miss and a finisher on the fox squirrel. No time restraints in the morn. should be an easy limit. 6 travelers, 2 cutters and a barker. 8 grays and 1 fox.

2 cutting on nuts or pine cones (probably on hickory nuts)
6 moving through the woods on the way to somewhere
1 barking at him to alert other squirrels of danger (aka "sounding the alarm")

Good work!

Do you normally kill more travelers than cutters during the early season?

Seems I take more cutters (early season), but may just be my hunting style, which is in part a preference to shoot them cutting.

depends on the block i am hunting. in mixed forests, where there are few target trees it tends to be travelors. the block i am going tomorrow will most likely be cutters.

Do you have any "secrets" for getting ahead of the "travelers" you encounter?

Seems I often spook the travelers trying to get in front of their line of travel, or in trying to catch up with them.

Opening morning was odd for me. The squirrels just weren't moving, and it seemed like a perfect morning.
