Squirrel Hunting Question
« on: October 09, 2010, 04:21:05 PM »
Well, my original plans for the week between Christmas and New Year's Day was to go deer hunting (for the first time in my life). Unfortunately, unexpected expenses killed that idea (I will be rebuilding my reserves at the time instead). So, I will be sticking closer to home. I am in the Dallas area, and I am looking at hunting on Army Corp of Engineer land for squirrels. Anyone have any idea how likely I am to see a squirrel at that time of year in North Texas?

If the squirrels are anything like our Hillbilly squirrels here, you ought to see a few or more.  Check the hunting laws though.  IIRC, most all other seasons are closed during deer gun season here in KY.

 BTW, I envy you.  I miss hunting tree rats, or hunting at all for that matter.

In Texas, a lot of the hunting seasons overlap. In my local area, the tree rat population is large enough that it is open season all year on squirrels.

Here is a link with a lot of info:
http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/huntwild/hunt/public/
It always helps to call an enforcement agent to get the info that would keep oneself out of trouble.
But be careful some counties have no closed season others have a limited season some counties have no open season.
