for another shot at a spring limit of squirrels. temp and wind look perfect. scouted some new ground that seems to be better suited for spring squirrels.

I just have a hard time being excited about spring squirrel unless you can find a mulberry bush they're hitting.

Hunting squirrels in the spring is akin to hunting turkeys in the fall ---- just ain't the same.

I dont know, mulberry trees I have found this spring (3) have had no squirrels at the times that I found them. The squirrels were in regular hardwoods, oaks, maples, hickory etc. Redblood you might kill me, but if I go squirrel hunting one more time this spring, I might take the 12 gauge. Shooting through greenery at fast moving skittish squirrels aint easy for iron sights on a .22 with little practice. I can shoot the head off a thistle though. \:D Also slaughtered a pigeon with the scoped air rifle. if squirrels are 15 yards or closer I am deadly with the air rifle. I will get that .22 scoped and sighted in before fall squirrel season, then the squirrels will be in grave danger.

The problem is they weren't feeding on the mulberries, and not cutting any nuts (which aren't ready until typically late August) = just not the same as "classic" fall squirrel hunting when they're noisily cutting nuts, especially hickory nuts.

I'd rather just have more of this spring's squirrels survive to this fall when I can stalk the ones I hear cuttin'. \:\)

Problem with fall squirreling is I'm in deer mode. Spring squirrel helps me get over turkey season being closed. Fall turkey sure aim the same as spring turkey either, but I like to be able to shoot a few in big flocks. Guess I just like stalking and shooting things no matter what season.

Check any bushes that are flowering. Squirrels love blooms and buds.

Yep, I recently watched a squirrel munch on a magnolia tree bloom for 45 minutes.

I don't know if I've ever killed more than 4 squirrels in one day os Spring squirrel hunting. In the big woods, it is brutally difficult. I've been hunting in my backyard and, granted, I've been letting the tiny ones go, I've only killed 9 this season. The only possible way it could be "easy" is to hunt squirrels in a neighborhood setting with a .22. I go running in the mid morning in my neighborhood and easily see 200-300 squirrels out in yards. It would be like a dream come true to be able to squirrel hunt the Central Gardens neighborhood of Memphis with no restrictions. A man's got to have a dream \:o

With all the rain we are getting it should be a great year for hard mast and soft mast.
