Late Season Squirrels

Postby Getdrove101 » Fri Feb 20, 2015 6:10 pm

I am new here but have been visiting this forum for a while enjoying the deer talk mostly. Gonna be deer hunting in the homochitto next year and was thinking about making a late season squirrel hunt next week. I haven't hunted the forest since I was a kid. What do y'all think is the trick to finding late season squirrels? Mainly wanna scout but squirrels are a pretty good excuse for making the trip.

Welcome!!!

If your still hunting, pick a spot and be still.
I would try to get with Glenn on here he may be able to take you on a hunt there.

It has been many years since I hunted the Homochitto forest. Mostly because there seems to be a major feud going on between the private land deer hunters and the deer dog hunters. Having said that, deer season is when I need a place to hunt with my dog, but I am not willing to put her in the woods with a target on her back.

However, once deer season is over I am more than willing to hunt there. I may ride out there this afternoon to see if I can find a decent looking area to try in the next few days. You would be welcome to join us if we go.

I appreciate the invite. I don't blame you for not putting your dog in there during deer season. Been a lot of controversy that I've heard the last couple years. I will probably try to make a run up there Thursday morning. My work schedule give me time off during the week so I'm gonna take advantage. Let me know if you are around and we may can get together. Like I mentioned earlier, I'm mainly going to just look around. But it'd be nice to get a couple bushytails

I had to come back to work Wednesday and never got to try the forest due to the weather before I left. Remind me early next year and we will get together.
