First squirrel of the early season. Beautiful, healthy, large adult male.
I am a hunting god.
Good job, but there ain't much meat on "a" squirrel. Better keep working on filling that freezer.
On that note, DANG it's hard to see the little tree rats when the leaves are still thick. Not to mention the fact that I live/hunt where the wind literally never stops blowing, and that means the LEAVES never stop moving and making noise...
...ah, the challenges of the hunt.
The place where I popped this one is pretty small. If I push too hard before they've had a few successful litters I'm not sure there would be any left for the regular season.
Congrats, our small game season doesn't open till Sept 15th.
Only three more days!!
3 more days but I have to work Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Opening day for me= Sept 17th.
Went again yesterday. I couldn't believe it. Shot this squirrel out of the tree. It fell 20+ feet, survived, than I shot it again, it began to squeal. I thought that was it, the death screech. But when I went to look it must have crawled away. I was so dissapointed.
Went out again today and did much better. Head shot off hand at 30 yards. What amazed me is that this was a perfect head shot with a large 36 grain HP, and after recovering the squirrel her brains were mush, but, nevertheless, she squirmed and tossed for about 5 seconds after getting hit. I've had head shots where they went perfectly still, but when they do the little "Totentance" that is a testament to how tough these little guys are.
