Come along for this airgun hunt: wildcat and squirrels. On one of my last squirrel hunts before the snows came, I took out my .25 caliber FX Wildcat topped with the ATN X-Sight day/night vision scope, and bagged a limit.
The leaves were mostly off the trees which made it easier to spot the squirrels moving up high…. of course it made it easier for them to see me as well!
My primary tactic was to either hike until I saw squirrels moving in the distance and start a slow stalk in, or find a “squirrely” looking area (with den or food trees) and set up and wait to catch them coming or going from one place to another.
