Went out for a stroll through the woods this morning after finishing up some errands. It was a little after 1030 when I started and getting warm, but I enjoyed the exercise and made for an opportunity to scout for deer and mainly just be out and about. I took along my old Remington 552 topped with a VX-1 2-7 and loaded with CCI mini mags. Ended up taking a limit of squirrels. Was about to head out and stopped to take a picture with only 5, then heard the leaves shaking above me and was able to get the full limit of 6, all fox squirrels. Saw 8 squirrels total and a couple of decent sized horned trees in about 2 hours.

Rich man rolls the dice, Poor man pays the price!

Good job! Like your rifle, my dad hunted with one sometimes. I've been out twice here and it's tough right now. We have a bumper crop of mast, tons of hickory and acorns. But very few squirrels. They haven't moved in any numbers yet. I'm going in the morning with my son and have a trip planned on Lost Italian Sailor Day with my son-in-law. Gotta cover some ground and see if I can locate them.
Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

That is some good table fare and I like the Remington. When I was growing up we had squirrel at least three times a week during season. Limit then was 6 per day, now the limit is 25 per day, fifty combined grey or fox. I have not hunted squirrel since mid 60's and used a Remington Fieldmaster. That rifle disappeared after parents called it quits after 35 yrs of marriage. I may get back into squirrels again as I love being out in the woods.

I always loved squirrel hunting as the season started Aug 1st. I didn't mind hunting in the heat as a teen. My mom hated cooking them and I never really learned how, now where I live there aren't many around.
photobucket sucks

Sold my 552 Delux when I bought a Weatherby 22, big mistake. No fox squirrels here, just grey. Looks like you had a fun morning !
