I've spent a lot of time walking through the woods looking for them, but they all seem to be in my back yard. Should I be going out early AM and late PM, or are they active at other times of the day?
My daughter (12) is interested in harvesting them, but she's less inclined to shoot them with a shotgun and would rather try with her bow. Has anyone gone out tree rat hunting with a bow, and what recommendations do you have?
IMHO tree rat hunting is one of my favorite excuses to go out into the woods and walk around for hours. I'm probably doing more hiking than hunting, and I'm okay with that. But since my daughter is now more interested, I should probably spend some time learning how to make it a productive hunt for her.

At one time I counted ten plus squirrels at one time.
I would give the bait a chance for a bow shot.
If your daughter is a good shot with the bow she should take a few for the pot.
Good Luck to you both.

And fried squirrel w/brown gravy is an excellent way to introduce kids to eating what they shoot. It is yummy lol.
