Art Lander Outdoors: Squirrel Season, the First on Kentucky’s Fall Hunting Calendar, Begins August 20

Kentucky’s fall squirrel season, a 191-day split season that kicks off the fall hunting calendar, opens by regulation on the third Saturday of every August.

The dates of the 2022-2023 season are Saturday, August 20 to November 11. The season then reopens on November 14 and ends on February 28, 2023.

.22 rifles, small-bore shotguns, and small-bore muzzleloaders are all good options for hunting squirrels (Photo by Art Lander Jr.)

The daily bag limit is six squirrels.

Cody M. Rhoden, small game program coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) wrote in the 2021-2022 Squirrel Report that “we expect to see a good 2022-23 hunting season.”

Weather last winter was favorable and 2021 statewide pole production for the top three pole-producing tree groups (hickory, red oak and white oak) was average, but in the eastern region pole production Walnut and beech was good.

There is a close relationship between one year’s nut production and the next year’s squirrel population levels.

The statewide mast production survey began in 1953 and is conducted annually in August. Pole crops are ranked by percentage of surveyed trees producing nuts: 0 percent, failure; 20 percent poor; 40 percent, average; 60 percent good and 80 percent excellent harvest.

White oak acorns (Photo from Flickr Commons)

In the fall of 2021, 43 percent of surveyed white oak trees had acorns. It is important to note that white oak acorns are the preferred food of forest wildlife.

Biologists travel the same route every year and estimate the year’s mast harvest, based on what they observe. After compiling this information, there is a clearer picture of what the impact will be, not only on squirrels, but also on other forest wildlife: white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, and black bears.

Extreme weather conditions, such as late frosts and torrential rains in spring and droughts in summer, can limit the quantity and quality of masts.

Hickory nuts begin to ripen in August and acorns and beechnuts in September and October. The end of winter is the time when food availability becomes most critical for squirrels and can affect their body condition ahead of breeding season.

Art Lander Jr. is foreign affairs editor for the Northern Kentucky Tribune. He is a Kentucky native, a graduate of Western Kentucky University, and has been a hunter, fisherman, gardener, and outdoors enthusiast his entire life. He has worked as a newspaper columnist, magazine journalist, and author and is a former staff writer for Kentucky Afield magazine, editor of the annual Kentucky Hunting and Trapping Guide and the Kentucky Spring Hunting Guide, and co-author of the column of the Kentucky Afield Outdoors newspaper.

Squirrel hunters can help management efforts by participating in the Squirrel Hunting Cooperators Survey. The voluntary program, which began in 1995, provides information that biologists use to monitor squirrel population trends in Kentucky.

Hunters record information about their hunts as the season progresses, including county hunted, field hours, number and species of squirrels seen and killed, number of hunters in the group, and number of dogs used to find squirrels .

When hunters finish hunting for the season, they mail their surveys to KDFWR.

After the survey information is compiled and analyzed, a report is sent to squirrel hunters who shared details of their hunting activities from the previous season.

Squirrel Hunting Cooperator Survey Results

Some highlights from the 2021-2022 squirrel season survey include:

• The survey detailed 391 hunts in 41 Kentucky counties.
• Hunters spent a total of 902 hours in the field, for an average of 10.9 hunts per cooperator.
• 28.6 percent of cooperative members said they hunted with dogs.
• Hunters reported seeing an average of five squirrels per hunt, and the total squirrel harvest for the season was 721 gray squirrels and 117 fox squirrels.

Differences in Gray Squirrels and Fox Squirrels

• The eastern gray squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) may be the most abundant and widely distributed game animal in Kentucky.

They build their homes in leaf nests and in the cavities of large trees, in a wide range of rural and urban settings. This includes remote forests of mountainous eastern Kentucky, agricultural forests, large riverbeds, and small streams throughout the state.

Gray squirrel (Photo from Wikipedia Commons)

Gray squirrels are quite small. Their head and body length range from about nine to 11 inches, with their tails adding another seven to 10 inches. Adults can weigh up to 21 ounces.

They do not show sexual dimorphism: there is no difference in size or coloration between males and females.

They have predominantly grey, brown fur, with a white underside.

Like all squirrels, the gray squirrel has four toes on its front feet and five toes on its hind feet. They jump and jump through the woods, with a leaping stride two to three feet long. They are strong tree climbers and can first descend from the head of a tree.

Like deer, gray squirrels are crepuscular, most active during the first and last hours of the day.

Visible year-round in Kentucky, gray squirrels do not hibernate. The gray squirrel is the dominant species in the heavily forested eastern third of Kentucky.

• The northern fox squirrel (Sciurus niger) is a grizzled salt-and-pepper gray with a yellow to orange upper body, pale yellow to bright orange breast and belly, and yellow-tipped tail hairs.

Fox squirrel (Photo by Gary Eslinger, US Fish and Wildlife Service)

Adults are typically 18 to 27 inches long, head to tail, and weigh 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 pounds. There is a higher percentage of fox squirrels in the small wooded plots and wooded fences of the agricultural areas of central and western Kentucky.

Squirrels typically breed twice a year; summer and winter. A litter of usually three or four pups is born 40 to 45 days later. The young are raised in the nest and then come out on their own at about two months of age. Some females may produce litters during both breeding seasons.

The squirrels’ diet includes nuts, twigs, buds, and tree fruits, although they also eat bird chicks and insects. They are hoarders, collecting nuts and keeping them in what is called a cache.

Over the years, the number of gray squirrels and foxes has remained fairly stable in Kentucky.

Hunting squirrels is a good way to guide youngsters or anyone new to hunting while teaching them gun safety and marksmanship.

When he shows them how to walk quietly through the woods, be observant, and blend into the trees and shadows while hunting squirrels, he conveys Kentucky’s proud hunting heritage.

‘Q&A with the Women of Marvel’: Lorraine Cink

The convention moment you’ll never forget?

A few years ago, I went to a Comic Con in Chile as a guest. After getting a chance to speak to a full panel of hundreds of people, we stayed to chat with some fans. A teenage girl came up dressed as Kate Bishop and asked for a hug and a photo. I happily obliged. As she hugged me, she began to cry and told me how much it meant to her to see women, especially queer women, in the Marvel Universe and how it helped her come out and become the woman she was becoming. I was so honored that she shared this moment with me and that she can be a part of telling stories that help people find and love themselves.

Which superhero costume gets ALL the candy in your house on Halloween?

Squirrel girl! She eats nuts, kicks butt, and deserves all the candy! Listen to Marvel’s Squirrel Girl: The Unbeatable Radio Show Wherever you get your podcasts!

The best advice you’ve ever received?

Do it now. Whatever you want to do with your life (whether it’s write a comic, make a movie, climb a mountain), start now. Start training. Do bad things. do it wrong Learn from those mistakes. Do better things. Do better things. Life is short, so don’t wait for permission to do what brings you joy now.

The Universe: Sending you messages or dealing with enough of its own to care about you?

This is a great question and I’m not sure I can answer it without going into what some may feel is pretty woo-woo, but here we go. We are made of stardust. We are the universe as much as the universe is the universe. Our ability to feel is purely energy and therefore we are all energy, therefore we are all one.

I don’t think ‘The Universe’ is emailing anyone, but I think we are all energy and we are all capable of tapping into that energy around us. If we are open to that, maybe we can be open to what that energy is doing. Was that an answer? Maybe? Who will tell? Ask the universe, I guess.

If you could go back in time and say one thing to your younger self, what would it be?

You’re perfectly fine the way you are right now. The things that make you feel weird and bad about yourself now will be the things you learn to love and treasure about yourself when you’re older.

Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Announces Open Enrollment for Hunting Workshops

Historically, Alabamans loved to hunt.

They hunted everything: birds, big game, small game. For generations of Alabamans, dove and quail hunting was a fall ritual followed by squirrel and deer seasons in the late fall, duck and waterfowl seasons, and rabbit and turkey seasons in the spring. Wild hogs and coyotes can be legally hunted 365 days a year. While game continues to abound, there are fewer hunters than ever.

Various factors influence hunting, from connection to the land to the price of food. While many younger Alabamans have fewer memories of exploring fields and forests, inflation in food prices has made hunting more economically beneficial in decades. But even if they wanted to, more and more Alabamans don’t even know how to hunt.

That’s where Hunting 101 stepped in.

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (AECNR) Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries (WFF) has addressed this need by offering its Hunting 101 Workshops. Participants learn to hunt through the Adult Mentored Hunt (AMH) Program. from Alabama. The program teaches all the skills necessary to bring wild game to the table and help start new traditions.

Alabamians can get started in the AMH program simply by signing up for a Hunting 101 workshop.

“Hunting 101 is open to anyone interested in learning to hunt,” said Brandon Holloway, Conservation Compliance Officer and WFF Regional R3 (Recruitment, Retention and Reactivation) Coordinator. “Our hope is that participants leave the experience with the skills and confidence necessary to have a successful hunt on their own or with a hunting partner.”

The program is designed for anyone with little or no hunting experience. The one-day workshops are held at various Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) throughout the state and provide participants with the opportunity to learn the basics of hunting, firearms safety and handling, where hunt and what equipment is needed.

Immediately following the workshops, participants are encouraged to put their newfound small game hunting skills to use at the WMA with the help of experienced mentors.

Registration for Hunting 101 is now open. The first workshop of the 2022-2023 season will take place at the Swan Creek Wildlife Management Area (WMA) near Decatur on September 24. There is a $20 registration fee for each workshop.

Click here to learn more about the AMH program or sign up for a workshop.

Workshop participants must be at least 19 years of age and possess a valid driver’s license. Attending Hunting 101 is a prerequisite for eligibility to participate in a three-day AMH deer or turkey hunt. Workshop attendees will be notified by email if they have been randomly selected for an AMH hunt.

Workshops will also be held:

A Turkey Hunting 101 workshop is also scheduled for February 25, 2023, at the William R. Ireland-Cahaba River WMA near Birmingham.

A lifetime of hunting | around town

I used to think that getting older would be a total drag. I’d be sitting in the rocking chair reflecting on the good old days and I guess that day will come. I am now in my 70s and no longer have the slightest desire to lead moose or bear hunters, but I am delighted to find that I can still climb a tree stand or pull meat from the woods.

I don’t haul deer or hog very far anymore, but I’ve learned that butchering and packing the meat in smaller quantities is better suited to my stage of life. I’m still a very active hunter, but these days I’m in the mindset that the next decade of hunting should be spent experiencing the glorious days of fall and winter doing exactly what I enjoy most.

I look forward to fall and hunting in cooler weather for a total of sixty-four years. Yes, I started hunting when I was eight years old, squirrels and rabbits mostly in the woods around our farm in rural Red River County in northeast Texas. I never considered letting my kids hunt on their own at such a young age, but things were different in the late ’50s, especially for country kids.

I remember following my dad and older brother around the woods since I was old enough to keep up with them and Mickey, my brother’s old black and tan hound. At the age of eight, with eyes as sharp as tacks and plenty of target practice, I was quite capable of knocking a fox squirrel out of the top of the tallest oak tree in our place, using the ox-horn sights of my old lady. .22.

Maybe my upbringing as a kid in the ’50s and ’60s is a contributing factor to my love of not only hunting but all things outdoors, but maybe not. I have had friends and family who never showed an interest in the outdoor lifestyle. Perhaps people are a bit like hunting dogs, the desire is integrated or not. I have introduced many adults to hunting who took it as if it was something they were meant to do, but just needed someone to expose them.

When I go to the woods or fields these days in search of game or game birds, I not only enjoy the “here and now” but also the many good times I have had in the field for six decades. When I have a hunting partner in a pack of mallard ducks or harvest a fat male for the freezer, I can almost always relate the experience to a fond memory of the past where much the same thing happened, only in another place with someone else.

I vividly remember the first whitetail deer I ever saw caught and hope the statute of limitations has expired! I was eleven years old and it was a cool November day. My brother-in-law, who was also one of my main hunting mentors, asked me to join him and a friend who was a serious hunter. This guy was the epitome of Grizzly Adams, beard and all! I was summarily placed in the lower branches of a tree while my mentors made their way to their hunting grounds. I managed to support the tree branch for an hour or so and then spent the rest of the morning sitting on the ground under the tree.

On the way out, Grizz, as we’ll call him, made a comment like this: “There’s been a couple of doe feeding on acorns under a white oak tree every morning around the corner. Get ready, he instructed my brother-in-law, you are about to kill your first deer.” If Doe were legal back then, I don’t know, I seriously doubt they were. As we rounded the bend, Grizz jumped out of the car first, armed with an old Chinese military rifle he’d bought through the mail.

Yes, back then you could order a firearm from a catalog and have it delivered right to your door! My brother-in-law was armed with a .22 magnum, probably also illegal at the time. He never got a chance to fire, Ole Grizz caught his eye on a fat shoulder and sent that steel military round his way. The solid bullet obviously ‘holed’ the deer and came out leaving very little blood. “Let’s go back to grandma’s house (Grizz lived with his grandma in a cabin in the woods).

I vividly remember Grizzly’s room being a corner of the cabin separated from the rest of the place by sheets hanging on the wall. Cracks were visible through the floor which was covered by the cheap blue flower patterned vinyl flooring common in the time period. We enjoyed an amazing breakfast cooked on an old wood stove and then loaded up a couple of dogs and went back to tracking the deer. It’s funny after all these years, but I remember every detail of that first deer hunt, the hawk that perched on the tree I was under, how awkward that branch was, and especially the amazing breakfast served by that good old woman who had lived her life in a world very different from the one we are experiencing today.

Looking back, it’s not the deer hunt that I remember, but the great fall weather and great food and, yes, the company of a couple of very experienced lumberjacks who had also lived in a very different era.

As I matured, I continued to add chapters to my life as a hunter. As I began my career as an outdoorsy writer, the chapters continued to grow as I experienced hunting and fishing with many people in many places. I well remember making bowhunting supplies in North Dakota with a fine family who farmed 20,000 acres of very rural land not far from Jamestown, ND. They supplemented their income by equipping bowhunters.

For several years, I looked forward to my annual trips to the area to hunt those huge farmland deer and spend time with these fine people. The people were of German descent and the ladies cooked and fed everyone in the camp… they might cook sometime! During the midday, after the morning deer hunt, we often drove down the roads and hunted pheasants, yes, at that time road hunting was legal in certain places.

The ladies turned those pheasants into some of the tastiest game food I’ve ever eaten. One of their specialties was pheasant covered in mushroom sauce with rice. I have since tried to duplicate her recipe and sometimes get pretty close, but no one could cook game like those ladies! It has been a decade since I met my friends in North Dakota.

Hunting seasons are almost upon us once again, as a famous outdoor writer once wrote, “My health is always better in the fall.” I agree!

Rifle selection for big game hunting

A common question from new hunters is “What caliber of rifle do I need to hunt?” Now this will depend on a few different variables. The first thing to consider is what your state’s regulations are regarding firearms. Be sure to check the regulations because some states will not allow you to hunt certain calibers while other states will.

Accuracy is something you will also want to think about when choosing a rifle. For those who are new to shooting, selecting a large bore rifle can cause them to shudder when shooting, making your shot inaccurate. Being accurate with a smaller caliber rifle will be more effective than inaccuracy with a more powerful large caliber rifle.

Choosing a rifle scope will also be something you’ll want to consider before purchasing a rifle. You want to leave some room in your budget for a quality viewer. You can buy the most expensive high-performance rifle, but if you put a cheap scope on it, the rifle will most likely not perform to its full capacity.

Once you’ve selected your rifle and scope combination, you’ll need to choose some ammunition to use. At first you will want to try multiple types of ammo brands. You can then shoot groups with these different ammo types and see which one shoots the best with your rifle. Some ammunition will shoot very well out of your rifle, while others will not pack tightly.

O-Pen by Roving Blue |

The Roving Blue O-Pen is a tool to ensure your water is safe to drink. The O-Pen allows you to treat water with a cloud of ozone gas that is used by water treatment plants and bottlers around the world. Ozone happens to be one of the strongest oxidizers available, leaving no toxic or strong-tasting chemicals that could be a problem for your body.

The O-Pen uses electrolytic ozone, which is much more powerful than chlorine and has been shown to be highly effective against multiple forms of bacteria, viruses, cysts and dangerous organisms. This is important because when you travel the world, not all water is safe to drink. If you haven’t developed a local immunity to specific organisms, your body can react extremely harshly. I learned this firsthand on a trip to South America, and I haven’t made the same mistake twice.

Ozone is a serious player in the elimination of microorganisms and parasites. These organisms cannot develop resistance to O-pen. The O-Pen contains a built-in lithium battery and is safe and legal for all airlines in your carry-on baggage. The unit is refillable and should be used with all water, whether it’s in your room, at camp, by a stream, and honestly, even in bottled water if you doubt its source. There is no need to trust anyone; Why not protect yourself and keep your body safe?

Using the Roving Blue O-Pen

The unit is extremely easy to use. Remove the bottom cap, stick the actuator to the bottom of your glass and press the button. It takes about a minute and you can clearly see the ozone coming out of the water with bubbles. Once this is done, it turns off and your water is safe to drink. The unit will run for approximately 50 uses per charge and is easy to plug in and charge.

I use it for all water when I travel, including brushing my teeth. I first treat the water that enters my mouth so that no harmful organisms come into contact with my mouth in any way.
