    I use a vest when squirrel or rabbit hunting. I keep a plastic bag in it and skin and gut them as I shoot them. It's also helpful to have a bottle of water to drink. I usually give it a wash at the end of the season.

    I always use a vest for small game, including squirrels. I also like to keep my hands as free as possible not only to be ready for a shot, but to be able to catch myself. I'm not the most graceful creature on the planet. If the vest gets too much blood in it, I'll generally rinse it out and just hang it to dry. It appears that we hunt in similar terrain. Here is a picture of my oldest son fetching a squirrel he shot earlier this fall in the timber we hunt.

    This is typical of what I hunt in.

    I am a squirrel hunter who uses a vest (I know it is heresy to use a vest for squirrels) to put the squirrels in when they make the mistake of standing still for too long. Every time I come in from a successful hunt I wash in cold water the vest and then either dry in the dryer, if I am in a hurry to get back out, or let it air dry. Do any of you who use a vest for any kind of game wash it out this frequently or do you just let it go to add a more natural scent? Before anyone asks no I don't just carry the squirrels or use a pin because of wanting to keep my hands free and the density of the woods I hunt in. See first post.
