I dont care much for the heat and squirrels, they move very early, then shut down.... I like many will take the cool days.... I used to do good in the afternoons, 2:30ish to around 6 ish ... esp, on hickorys, but where I go, there isnt a hick on the place, and very few walnut trees, mostly all oak .. plus, I get to sleep in...it sucks having to get up at 3:30am just for squirrels then make the drive ;0( ....I dont mind it for deer

rabbit_hunter in my experience, from just after first light and then continuing for a couple hours, is usually their most active time "cutting". It is usually the coolest temps of the day for hunting as well. But evenings can be good too.

When deer hunting red squirrels are a pest for sure but keep an eye on the grey and fox squirrels. They will tell you if deer or varmints are around. When you hear them raising cane watch in that direction and usually something appears. h.h.

nice shooting td. handgun hunting is twice as hard. i dont have a .22 handgun that could be used for hunting and thats a shame because everyone should own at least 1. h.h.

Would love to have a ruger single six to try it out. Only took one Sunday on the first trip. Didn't hear many cuttin and with a noisy 5 year old it gets tough. With the ones I did see a shotgun would have been worth carrying

Dave, what sight do you have on the Ruger? I have a cheap bsa red dot and well, it's a cheap bsa red dot and doesn't hold zero well anymore. Of course I am getting shakier these days. I've taken I think 12 grays so far. Haven't used the 22 yet. Usually wait until they're on the ground.
