That is how I understand it. Have to wait until deer season is over. I had a landowner meet me at my truck the other day. He wasn't happy. They banned hog hunting, but not squirrel hunting.

What, he heard shots and came to reprimand you? Eye roll. Get over it.

He tried to tell me that ALL hunting was not allowed during deer season. I pulled out a copy of the rules and showed it to him in black and white. I actually thought it was kind of funny.

Iíve been watching a few shows where they were squirrel hunting. I might have to tag along with you one day. Looks like a lot of fun.

The problem isnít just a few shots. Itís these weekend warriors firing off several hundred rounds with their AR. Or maybe they donít know itís not legal to target practice on Corp land. Eye roll.

I was the only one in this unit that I know of. 5 shots 5 squirrels. I was not blasting away. The guy wanted to call the GW before I showed him the COE print out.

Bushwacker- He said he was squirrel hunting and the LO met him at his truck. Youíd have to assume that a sane man wouldnít be squirrel hunting near a bunch of yahoos firing off ARís. The LO specifically pointed out ďno huntingĒ not ďno target practiceĒ or ďno re-enactments of Black hawk downĒ.

So, OP I assume you are sane, hope Iím right.

While I donít disagree that firing off ARís happens and is a problem- itís a separate issue from this, clearly.

No longer eye rolling just speaking plainly. Happy New Year.

I grew up and started on squirrels. I would love to get the ol .410 out for some one day. I heard gunshots all night till 130 am when I was bowhunting Saturday nigh. Shotguns sounded like. Can you shoot shotguns at night on core?

I knew yo could slug them but didn’t know at night. I never bothered to try because I know how nocturnal they are.
