In NH and ME, we started our hunting careers with red squirrels, about 2/3 the size of greys. We'd go up in the summer for a week and shoot many dozens of them.

They are protected in lots of states, including WA and WI.

That map is not even close to being accurate....

Sure, whatever. Shot over 200 last 18 months. I know where they're at.

Saw a ton of california ground squirrels when i was down in klickitat county this year trying to rustle up a spring turkey. Had I brought my 10/22 I reckon I would have been able to fill the dang cooler with skinned squirrels, but alas we were totin' 12 gauges.

Amazing how big of nuts squirrels can pack around.

You guys are LUCKY. I'm starting to see a few grays in my area, but that's after running a "bird feeder" after 2 years.  There's few chases as exciting as seeing a well seasoned female red-tailed hawk going after grays in the tree tops.  That's one of the few game falconers have on the west side.
You'll never get a Big'un if you keep shooting Little'un's.

No, just the opposite here in Wa.  The Eastern Grey is an invasive.  Fox squirrel s too, but I don't think we nave a population of those.

Western Greys, on the other hand, are protected.  Location is the dividing line.  Western Greys
are in the South Sound in Oak grove areas for the most part.
May that for which I prepare never come to pass.

When I lived in Missouri, we'd have a competition on who could kill the squirrel with the biggest nuts they were packing around.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice
