.....started Sunday. The boy came up and we headed to the woods about daybreak. It was beautiful in the woods, and NO MOSQUITOS!!! They haven't started really hitting the nuts yet, and I only saw 1. Two shots, but I got the ole girl. Went out yesterday, Saw 3, and shot at 2 different ones, and missed em both! Dam*ed eyes and old age..... The boy got one on Sunday, also.

I grew up in east central Indiana and how I miss those hot August 15 openers!

And......those big reds!

Keep up the good work.

Want to go hunting, but they are talking very hot and humid for the next 4-5 days. Doubt if I go for a while.

Changed my mind, and went for about 2 1/2 hrs., before it started getting too hot. Saw 2 and nailed 1 with my good ole single shot H&R Sportster. 1 shot, and DRT.

Looks like a great time. Squirrel season starts September 15th in my home state. One of these years I’d like to go down to Indiana and try a dove opener.

WCH I got it from a pretty good source that theres a bunch of red fox squirrels on the public land out of Lovell on Bighorn Lake.In the cottonwoods of course. If you get in therefor a look, let me know. Here they are considered an invasive specie, so no closed season and no limit....but most of them live in town or on the Powder river.

The boys have killed ten so far. They haven’t been out much due to the heat. All gray squirrels and all out of hickories.
Fried em’ up and threw them in the oven for a couple of hours covered in cream of mushroom soup. Fine vittles!!

Fox Squirrel hunting in north east Indiana was always a blast, but wow, that was a long time ago.

My old deer spot west of Logansport had a mature 40 acre oak woods on it.

Proly 50/50 fox and grey.

Not too many reds.

Used to shoot em w my Ruger pistol.


Current deer spot is mostly reds and too many houses around, have to wage shotgun war on em after deer season.

Too hot, buggy......and is my deer woods, so stayin tje hell out.

Try to zéro my High Standard pistol this weekend.
Irons

Have a Buckmark w reflex already done, but it has the walnut target grips ( slabs wo finger groove ). Does NOT feel as good as the old High Standard.

W bridged rear sight a bbl change and optics looks silly, since rear sight stays on the Trophy.


Might have to buy another HS for optics LOL

Still prefer pistol to rifle on tree rats.

Finally got to go this am, since it cooled off some. Popped one with my single shot .22, not 5 mins. after I hit the woods. One shot, straight down, but I couldn't find him in the weeds. Two hrs. later, I came by the same tree, heading for the truck. Walked under the tree from a different direction, and there laid the lil booger. He died closer to the tree, than I thought. Oh well, I'd rather be lucky than good any daygrin.
