Yep a 10 guage for squirrels is a must becouse they are thick skinned big boned dangerous game. But as of last couple yrs i have been huntin rabbits an squirrel with a 22 cal pellet gun, i use the gammo nitro piston an man its cheap fun.

Dense timber. Thins out as you get closer to the lake but still pretty thick.

Depends on how things are going and my mood. If its kinda windy I spot and stalk w my Marlin 882 22 mag. If its calm ill sit in a likely spot for awhile then move on a little ways. Usually use my 22 mag w 40 gr cci fmj or Winchester dynapoint 45 gr. Either that or my ruger 10/22 tactical hunter I built shooting cci minimags, federal bulk pack, or silver hv Winchester bulk pack.
