    At my place all you need is a lawn chair and couple quarters to rattle/grind together
    Squirrels do so much damage to sap lines. Find your local syrup bush offer to cut down the squirrel population
    If they donít already have some one doing it you might get a invite

    Most any shotgun or 22 rifle will work. As others have said county forests are a great place to hunt. Simply slowly walk a few steps and then stop for a while and scan the trees for squirrels. Tip if you come across an area with lots of squirrel nests around, just sit down against a big tree and wait for them to come out. Also if you find an area with lots of nuts on the forest floor do the same, sit and wait for them. Also if you own both shotgun and 22, I would use the shotgun for the early season while the trees still have leafs on them. Once the leafs fall bring out the 22 for longer shots. Have fun out there, squirrels are fun to hunt and tasty.

    When was the last time you went to dufferin county forest. A permit to hunt certain forest in dufferin county was $30 bucks I think. Either way itís still affordable

    Pretty sure you can hunt on most of the Halton Tracts as well. Just get on out there.

    If you use a bow too, make sure you're ready to apologize for shooting the sugarline while the squirrel craps his pants on your arrow :P

    So I just re-read the bylaws and you can bow hunt during the bows only season - but it doesnít say you canít hunt small game.

    Shotgun is only during the controlled hunt.

    So a .22 is probably a no go.

    Didnít think of this because I only bow hunt.

    OP, go buy a recurve
