    Long spring traps covered in moss on top of a rotting log always makes for some suspense waiting for a red or pine squirrel to make his way down the log.
    SNAP!!

    years ago i was in the middle of playing a game on my phone and out came a small 6 point. I have been thinking about getting a small pocket card game or something. However these ideas of chipmunk fishing seem rather comical

    When I had a broken bone in an ankle I would lean against a blown down tree and read a book looking up after reading a page. Got a buck doing this with a bow.

    Fishing string with a pile of Acorns and a dead fall, now that would be entertaining!

    Yup. Nothing like waiting around coming up with ideas in case there's a zombie squirrel apocalypse!
    But we digress...and the hunting guide specifically says not to build pit traps or harass wildlife...:cool:

    It is not illegal to shoot squirrels with a 30-06, nor is it illegal to shoot squirrels while firearm deer hunting.

    You might want to have a small game license when killing small game.

    The base license that is required when buying a deer license is a small game license.

    I downloaded solitaire on my phone and it kept me in the tree way longer. I was in the middle of an intense game when an eight point walked up behind me. Got the fever bad lol
