become a Supporting Member today.
I was thinking about this today and was wondering if anyone knew something about it. I saw a video a while back on a squirrel hunitng tournament out of Clio Michigan. Wondering if anyone knew the details and if it was going to happen this year.

I believe you saw the Michigan Out of Doors episode. I dont have any info on that. But if squirrel dogs are your thing then you may want to check out the Michigan Squirrel Dog Association. We typically have buddy hunts but this year we are going to have a tournament. Here is a link to the website:

Thanks I will check it out. Never seen a squirrel dog in action but I have heard about them. I've hunted just about everything with feathers with my lab and many a rabbit with my beagle but never a squirrel.

You may want to check out our buddy hunts. We have them once a month when season is in. All are welcome and we usually have a potluck after the hunt.

If you get a chance to go to a buddy hunt, do it! I was back in the state last winter for a couple of weeks. I went along with a cast on one of the buddy hunts. I had the time of my life. The kids did all the shooting, and some pretty impressive shooting at that! The people made me feel right at home, even though I had never met any of them. It's a good way to find out if squirrel hunting with dogs is your cup of tea. If I end up moving back to Michigan someday I will be joining the club and going to as many events as I can.

Sparky- thanks for the kind words of our club. We try our hardest to make sure the whole family has fun. Even though our summer picnic has a meeting we make sure we have games to keep the kids busy. This year we are even having a treeing contest for the kids. Again anyone can attend the meeting/pinic next month.

I hope to make it to a buddy hunt. I poked around the website at bit but didn't see anything. Then again I didn't look really hard and I was distracted by something else.

I'll check it out again though.

We dont have thedates set for this upcoming season yet. That will be done in a couple weeks at our annual picnic. Usually there will be one per month. If you watch our forum sometimes guys will post they are going and looking for people to go with. Look forward to meeting you at one of the buddy hunts.

That will work....I've been known to trade a walleye fishing trip on the Detroit River for a squirrel hunt.

I just found out about the MSDA and I can't wait till the picnic, looking forward to it and to joining the association. I always thought it would be neat to have a squirrel dog and for the first time in my life that I can remember I am dogless, I'm thinking a nice fiest pup will fill that void in a very pleasant way.

I wouldn't doubt it but there are no dogs in my future. Not home enough to properly train or take care of one.
