I've got the itch to go out and hunt some squirrels. With the absence of mast this year, anybody got any suggestions on what type of area to hunt? I saw quite a few during bow season on what few oaks produced (I'm in Hardeman County), but not so much during deer season. Would appreciate any tips.
Thanks

Cool- thanks. Have to get some Gold Bond. Will try the same hardwoods I saw them in before.They don't migrate, do they? (the squirrels.... bet the hardwoods are still there!)

I see you're in Brownsville. I used to hunt in Mercer before getting my new place. Where do you hunt?

I've heard a lot on here about Chaney Lake- sounds like a good group there. I have 1300 acres in Hardeman south of Bolivar, just me and six other friends.

Deer (lots) and turkey. We have 2 1/2 miles of Spring Creek bordering us, and a few beaver ponds. See quite a few wood ducks and there's one beaver pond my son has duck hunted. Nothing consistent on big ducks, though. We took 35 does and 7 bucks off it this year. About 1000 aqcres of it had not been hunted in 3 years so we have a pretty good population of more mature bucks, and can't tell how many bucks we passed up. I've got it on a ten year lease, so we'll be there for a while.

Yeah, it's a neat place. First time in 25 years I've had a place that will be worth developing. We're all new to QDM and only one guy has much experience with food plots. Fortunately the land owner has given us free rein to put in food plots, even gave us use of his dozer to clear stuff as long as we don't mess up any pines. however, we have almost a mile of powerline running through it and a bottom he cleared out that's close to 3/4 of a mile long that will have several food plots in it. These areas are pretty much in the middle of the property, so we believe we will have enough food to hold the deer in the pine thickets all year. It's quite an opportunity. We're very lucky.
