Rifle season will be over for deer in 10 days.  I'll continue to hunt with flintlock and archery thru February.

But now is the time I start to think about Squirrel Hunting.  Slow walks in deer hardwoods with my manlicher style 22LR rifle.  Walking on quiet snow, sometimes with snowshoes.

Anyone else look forward to squirrel hunting?

I have to drive quite a way to get to a tree. It does sound fun though.

I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.

watching during the 2020 deer season, seem squirrel populations are down again this year.  Anyone hear of a reason?

especially fox squirrels.
