I treated a couple of acres with hack ‘n squirt last fall. The trees aren’t dead yet. Did I do it correctly?

It sounds like the trees you treated with the hack and squirt technique weren’t terminated.  This likely has to do with the herbicide that was used and/or the time of year it was applied.  A good herbicide blend that works on many hardwood species is 50% Garlon 3A, 40% water, and 10% Arsenal AC.  The generic brands of these herbicides work fine.
