Were you near lake houses? The fattest squirrels I ever shot came from cave run, got them in strips between cabins. Full of corn and birdseed. Could barely climb
I take the kayak out and shoot them off of it. Funner than hell. They pay 0 attention to you on a kayakI've always wanted to squirrel hunt from a boat, actually took the shotgun once but the crappie was biting so let the squirrels be.
Nephews went down in the woods with their pellet rifles and brought 5 back. Well I got stuck cleaning em and all of them but one had no fat on it at all which kinda shocked me considering they about half tame and eat from bird feeders all they want
