Squirrel Hunting

Mother squirrels bear a second litter of babies in late spring, offering a bumper crop of bushytails to hunt in June and July. But just because they’re young, doesn’t mean they’re easy. Bagging a limit requires some serious sharpshooting! Grab an adult and hit the woods to practice shooting. Consider it summer school for fall hunting seasons. Make sure you have the right permits, follow the hunting rules and know how to clean the squirrels you harvest.
