Squirrel Airgun Hunt

Squirrel Airgun Hunt

Squirrel airgun hunting in the Winter means unpredictable weather so the hunting outfit today is the Deerhunter Mouflon long Winter jacket in Realtree Edge, which offers support against the elements if there is a sudden drop in temperature. Find out more about hunting in the Winter with these top tips from Hawke.

The grey squirrel population is rapidly growing in this area and really needs to be brought under control. The hunting gear of choice is the Air Arms S510 Ultimate Sporter, ideal for squirrel shooting as it is lightweight and manoeuvrable. The variation of shots will change throughout the day from 35-50 yards; having a high-powered air rifle gives that extra length.

Grey squirrel population is rapidly growing in this area... ...and really needs to be brought under control.

Starting off on a highseat does not bring the rewards needed so a different tactic, heading out on foot.

It does not take long for a clear sight of a squirrel on a nearby pheasant feeder. Feeders will always offer a great spot to find squirrel. With the Air Arms S510 Ultimate Sporter at the ready it wont be long before there is a perfect shot.
