So quick question...

Do you have better luck with squirrel doing the walk/wait/walk method or the sit for an hour before moving method?

I like to stalk until you see a squirrel and then sit down until he moves.He might have friends also.

I prefer still hunting for squirrel. but sometimes will sit for a while.

last month I was walking around with a shotgun looking for ducks, doves and squirrel and had steel shot in the gun. I sat down by a tree and took a short nap. A sound in the leaves woke me, and I saw a squirrel 10 feet away jump onto the base of a tree as I raised my gun and blasted it. Unfortunately I hit it in the rear instead of the head, not sure how that happened, but it was not pretty.

That sux too. Best part of the squirrel is the hindquarters imo.

yeah that's where most of the meat is, also the front legs/shoulders are good, but not as much meat. That squirrel was a waste...
