What are your opinions on shooting a fox squirrel? I've noticed a lot of mixed feelings on trying to keep them around.

Why wouldn't you..I see more of them than greys.

That's how I feel about them also but it got me to thinking the other day when I was hunting some private property and the older guy said shoot all the greys you want but don't shoot the fox squirrels. When I got out there I saw 1 grey and 6 fox squirrels. I've never seen so many on one piece of property and for that matter with one sit. I know he can do with what he wants with his own property. I just was wondering if there were reasons or opinions other then there's not that many around anymore.

I run my dog on some private property and the landowner is the same way... He asks that I don't shoot them. He says they are there but I haven't seen one yet

My grandmother loves them. She thinks they are too pretty to shoot. Id like to have one mounted.

I skwerl hunted the first 20 years of my life and never saw one.
I've seen maybe a few dozen over the past few years and had a thought to shoot one but if anyone wants to that's their business


When I need expert advice I tend to talk to myself

I've killed 10-15 over the years. There are some areas that have a lot and some a few and a bunch of land none.

Never seen one in my hardwoods, I understand they are prevalent on the Russell Lands property and saw one crossing hwy 63 into the pines. I think if I do see one here I would opt for a pic since I wouldn't mount it.

I never shot any or saw any for 30 years, but the property we bought 4 years ago is loaded with them.

It all depends on where you are hunting I guess.

We usually don't shoot them because we rarely see them. If we had many of them i wouldn't mind shooting a few of them. We usually leave them just for conservation purposes. Had one guy owned a pecan orchard and fox squirrels were eating all his pecans.He invited us to come hunt and kill all we could kill.

I seen a couple when I went to choccolocco WMA a couple weeks ago. First ones that I recall seeing since I was a kid. They are beautiful animals. I wouldn't shoot one unless I wanted a mount but I have heard they are good on the grill.

I have only shot a handful of them in the past. I went through a phase where I didn't see many. I wouldn't go against the property owners wishes and mess our friendship up over a squirrel. I was just curious of everyone else's thoughts. Thanks

My grandpaw use to see them all the time in new market. I killed one there years ago in a fence row. Havent seen any more and thats been 20 years ago. We always wondered why they died off. I wouldn't have killed that one if i knew at the time. Tasted tougher

We are covered with them here but I don't shoot them a lot. IMO they taste better than greys because they actually have fat on them. I shot one a good while ago and that sucker had fat rolls on his back. Fine eatin

See at least one every time I've climbed this year. Had 4 in the same tree Thursday morning. The 3 chased that 1 the whole time I was in there.. Sounded like a herd of cows running around. Lol
