It went well! we had a lot of fun and other varmints died too....raccoon , coyote, woodchuck. Gotta say my shooting on squirrels left something to be desired...they seemed to have gotten smaller and faster in the 45 years Ive been gone....
He spoke in tears of 15 years his dog and him traveled about. The dog up and died. She up and died....After 20 years he still grieves.
You must have had a good time... Squirrels sure don't sit still for long... As soon as I spot one and settle in for a head shot and start my trigger squeeze they are more often than not on the move. Now if I can find them eating that improves the odds.

We've had a weird fall this year. The woods stayed green longer than normal. Leaves were green and hung on the trees longer than usual. Same for the underbrush. This weekend looks to be the peak of the fall colors. I've been bowhunting deer and the woods are full of squirrels but they are darn hard to see.
I killed another black grey squirrel yesterday. Big sucker. Really deep, blacker than the ace of spades black with silver tips on the end of his tail hairs. He's in the freezer whole. Might hafta take him to the taxidermist. I already have one mounted that I shot back in the 80's. Only been two others in all these years and I've killed a shytload of squirrels in that time. To say black ones are very rare around here is an understatement.
