Garryc, Glad you mentioned Greys and fox... I forget about the fox squirrels. They are very rare in Florida and very much off limits to hunting.
we have 3 types of hunt cover where I live. we have the full size oaks but that is less prolific than either the longleaf pines which are very tall and quite sparse. The Squirrels get in them and pluck green cones and shred them for the pine nuts. for this I prefer the scoped rifle as they sit still not aware they have been spotted. To locate them you see the chunks of cone raining down or hear them gnawing them. HEAD SHOT!!! The other main type of cover is smaller oaks mixed with palms and scrub. For this they tend to be more alert and runners are the norm so I like the shotguns for fast target aquisition.
