how frequently do you kill a limit of squirrels



Log in to see fewer ads
I picked up squirrel hunting again about three for four years ago but killing the Fall/winter limit of squirrels (8) is a pretty tuff thing to do. Most hunters I hunt with and most we bump into in the woods hardly kill a limit in a single morning hunt.

For me, bagging four of five on one hunt, is considered a good hunt and I don't miss very often. There have been a few hunts where I've killed zero squirrels. I'm still learning but the late season is real tuff except the very last week when things started budding the last three days of season.

I'm not against someone ambushing a bait pile or thinning out pests around the house but for this survey only hunts for wild squirrels with natural food sources count.

If all y'all say you always limit y'all are going to make me feel bad!

Thanks,
Scootch

With a 25 daily limit I have never gotten close because I usually stop at 10. But, it is a full day and I don't take more than 1 from a local spot, I try to keep a few hundred yards between them.

Michigan limit is 5 a day. I usually get 2 to 4, sometimes 0 though. But I'm not hunting real hard either. I feel bad shooting em now since they made it thru winter and things are getting better but then think what a waste it is to see them dead on road. Love to eat squirrel.

Best answer...it is totally unpredictable. I've gone to the same woods for many years and I'm the only one who hunts squirrels there. I'm very lucky to have access to such a place. in the last 4-5 years I've had a couple of those years where I could kill my limit of 5 almost every hunt. Other years when I would kill 1-3 average all season long. This year I killed my limit once, but missed out on the peak season in the fall. Actually had a couple of hunts this year when I got skunked. Went to a different place where I've killed 3-4 each time in the past and got nothing. It's been a weird year for me.

10 is the limit here. For me 3 to 5 is common. Seeing 10+ happens fairly often but having a shot on 10 not so much.

Our limit is twelve. Rarely get that many here. I consider eight a dang good day anymore. We have kinda been in a squirrel drought here for the past few years.

Our limit is five, which I have gotten twice. I normally get 2-3. I should add that for the last five years I almost always hunt with an airgun, on public land.

Limit??

I only have access to public ground and usually only hunt 1/2 days. To date I've taken one limit of five fox squirrels. Mainly I just enjoy getting out in the woods.
