Took a personal day to get stuff done. That took all of 3 hours, so it proved a good opportunity to go squirrel hunting.

The trees are in full leafy mode, so I tried something new- 20 gauge H&R with a turkey choke and #6 pheasant loads.

It was pretty dark under that canopy. Dark enough that the one squirrel I saw got away scot-free. He was maybe 25 yards and on the ground. The shot went high left and he scampered up a tulip poplar, never to be seen again.

The trip wasn’t a waste, though. Found some really good brushy areas for hunting this Fall.

You see any of the family while out there?

Animalspooker that pic reminds me of something I saw the other evening. I go out in the evening before dark each evening. I am taking a trail through these woods and then a small river. There is a cement pipe that goes into the hill and water flowing. I look and see the whole family of Racoons. They run slow single file into the cement tube when they hear me
