    I enjoy squirrel hunting best with a scoped bolt action .22, but I'll admit that my best squirrel hunting day was with a 12 gauge and a black and tan colored feist dog.

    Plan to do a little squirrel hunting this year before I get too old to hang out in the woods, and I'll use my little .32cal flintlock squirrel rifle. Beautiful little rifle, and "minute of squirrel head" accurate out to 40-45 yards.

    Shotgun because:

    1. Base regs say so.
    2. It is also deer season and a person can slip in a slug if the opportunity comes along.

    My gun of choice is my Traditions Crockett, a .32 caliber percussion muzzle loader, but far more squirrels have fallen to my Marlin model 39M. Keep yer powder dry.......Robin :jester:

    You should keep that in mind for duck hunting. I've had deer get tangled up in the decoy strings. Just be sure to have your orange with you.

    I have shot a couple duck hunting
    but, these days you better have approved nontoxic ammo only on hand.

    The orange vest and a spare is kept on the boat until the end of Feb.

    I am aware of that dynamic and have argued the point with game wardens. If I have a slug or two wrapped up in my orange stuffed down in my waders, then I ain't duck hunting with slugs. But I haven't duck hunted from a boat since I was a kid. I've mostly been in waders in a field blind or in the flooded green timber. So that's a different scenario. So I agree you make a good point. Just not one I buy into.
