Is The Tradition of Squirrel Hunting Dying Out?

Is The Tradition of Squirrel Hunting Dying Out?

 

As martial citizens we have a responsibility to not only stand up for our hunting rights but also keep hunting traditions alive by passing it on to the next generation. When it comes to squirrel hunting, there are some very practical applications and benefits as it relates to prepping/survival and marksmanship practice.

 

 

In a survival situation, minimal effort and ammunition is required to kill a few squirrels to make a hearty stew (they are also good roasted over an open fire) and if you want to improve your handgun or rifle accuracy for purposes of self-defense or hunting, instead of using a shotgun, try hunting them with a .22 pistol or rifle (like a Ruger MK IV Hunter) with open sights with head shots only.

When I was a kid growing up in central Texas, we used to have competitions on how many squirrels we could kill with head shots only using open sights. Where I lived at the time we had both Fox and Cat Squirrels and believe me when I tell you, hitting a small cat squirrel in the head with a .22 pistol with open sights 30+ yards up in a tree is no small feat!

Fascinating interview with 100 year old Trapper and Hunter Roy Eykamp; the last of a dying breed.

I have always been fascinated by trappers and mountain men who made their living from living off the land and  harvesting pelts.

When I was a kid growing up in Central Texas, I would go out trapping and fox hunting with my Dad and those are some of my best childhood memories to be sure.

I like the advice he gives about shooting from an aircraft or any moving vehicle. You never traverse your aim horizontally (left to right) you only move vertically (up and down).
