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.
