They say you can't fix stupid

Postby Yogie » Wed Sep 05, 2012 8:18 pm

DNR opens squirrel season here this weekend, Sept 8. :roll: :?
It was in the mid 90's today and seems like it has been forever, I haven't hunted them for a good 30 years but I remember most of them having warbles until about the first frost in mid Oct. when season usually starts.
The next weekend comes a week of Bear hunting then Bow season deer opens about the last week of Sept. :roll:

I like bow hunting but not in the summer, I can still wait until about the first of Nov.
I guess maybe someone there owns interest in Bug suits and sprays... :lol:

we call em wolves down here , nasty little buggers. We never hunt rabbits, squirrels, deer or anything else to eat before COLD weather. The weather now is going through a warm spell for the last few years here. But we will have a cold spell in a few years I speck. Man I use to love to squirrel hunt when I was a kid, Granddaddy had a squirrel dog gone to bed. His name was rusty , he was a short haired terrier. He would get on the other side of the tree and raise cane barking till the squirrel would move around to my side so I could get a shot. Granny would get on you good ifin you didnt shoot em in the head. Took a sharp one to jump trees and get away from Rusty, he would have to find a holler to go in . And best not be close to the ground or I would cut a forked stick and twist him out :D. Good times back then. Was also fun to still hunt when they were cutting hickernuts . Right good ole days back then.

They're still out there Don, I guess it's me and you who ain't as much anymore. :lol:
Your write up says they're okay to eat anyway but be danged if i'd eat one of them that way. :roll: Yuck !
Always kind of felt I'd put the squirrel out of his misery when I saw he had one....
I remember mom getting the cats down and cutting them out with a knife, nastiest thing you've ever seen. :roll:

I've been lining Grayson up for his first Buck this year and he told me he'd rather spend this season hunting squirrels with his 22. I guess we'll get after deer maybe next year.

Warbles....Thats exactly why I refuse to eat squirrel or rabbit. Had to growing up but no more.

As a little boy, I used a jc Higgins single shot 22 to squirrel hunt with. As an older man, I still pull that old Higgins out and take her squirrel hunting from time to time. sure brings back the memories :)
I'll be drinking that free bubble up, and eatin that rainbow stew.

I have never heard of warbles in squirrels, very interesting. Although, I did work with a gentlemen at B & W a few years back that enjoyed squirrel hunting and making squirrel spaghetti, delicious ! Pabst :D

My Grandpa called them "wolves" too. Always said the month had to have an "r" in it before you could eat game. Not many hunt them anymore, and we're over run with squirrels. I could limit out on my little three acres most of the time.

I don't like to eat squirrels, but do hunt them on a regular basis close by. They tend to work on my garden, have even had problems with them chewing vacuum hose off my new truck, so I work seriously on keeping the numbers down.
