Hey DRSLYR - I can answer for Bango Skank because from an earlier post of his it's clear he lives in Washington. Washington does not have a season on tree squirrels, and I think the only tree squirrel they have there in any numbers is the pine squirrel (also called, at least in the Pacific Northwest, the Douglas squirrel or the Chickaree). Like you in Missouri, I have both grays and foxes here in Ohio, and shoot them both. Where I live there are no pine squirrels, but I see them regularly in the higher elevations of West Virginia while I'm trout fishing. As a matter of fact, where I trout fish in the WV mountains, ALL I see are pineys - never a fox or a gray. There are lots of foxes and grays in WV, but at lower elevations. I would love to live in Washington. I would miss my squirrel hunting. If I DID live there, and Washington opened a season and all there was to hunt were pine squirrels, I'd pass. They are even smaller than a gray, after all.
Heck yea, squirrel for dinner, hard to beat!
God bless our troops! Thanks to all that serve or have served!
Thanks for the info guys. I love squirrel hunting.
