This was the first squirrel hunt that my dad and I took my nephew on. He went dove hunting with me last year, but squirrel hunting is a little different. It's a great way to teach a child to whisper, walk softly, and keep their eyes focused and attentive. Hard to see the little buggers this time of year.....actually easier to hear them first. My nephew spotted one that I ended up shooting. Was a great time.
