It only feels like it’s always open season on squirrels. In fact, squirrel hunting is as challenging and exciting as any hunt—and regulated the same way—and it can be as satisfying to the home owner and gardener as it is to the beginning or experienced hunter. In The Ultimate Guide to Squirrel Hunting, here’s everything you ever wanted to know about the critter Americans love to hate—and hunt. There are concise descriptions of the differences between the Abert’s squirrel and the fox squirrel, and the sluggish western gray squirrel and the faster, feistier eastern gray squirrel. Maps show the ranges of these animals, and profiles explain where they live, what they eat, and how they move. Bob Gooch covers state-by-state guides to squirrel hunting, the habitat of the squirrel, and how to recognize it. There’s also his advice on the management of this habitat, with valuable hints on looking out for the next generation of squirrel hunters, as well as more immediate measures like building nest boxes. He has also included chapters on hunting methods—from dawn to dusk, on streams, in all kinds of weather conditions, and with dogs. Additionally, Gooch’s discussion of guns naturally focuses on the beloved .22, but he also details how to hunt with bows and shotguns, as well as offering advice on camouflage and blinds.
