My property backs up to 40+ acres of old growth hardwood. It is a perpetual squirrel factory. I typically shoot 50+ tree rats a year and there is no sign that I am making a dent.

So my typical morning is make a pot of coffee, shoot a rat or two, cruise the news. Apply, rinse, repeat.

Now it's starting to feel like squirrel season. It's 64 degrees here right now and humidity is low. Man, yesterday is was 91.

Getting out in the AM. First time this year,should have been out in late May and killed a mess of young ones but ticks were fierce around here then and just now getting cool enough.

Took a short walk and saw several last night, see if they are still active in the morning.

My youngest son and I went this morning.

Had a decent T-storm roll through at 6:45-7:15 and we didn't get to the tree line until about 8Am sharp.

Saw some birds. A few cuttings. He saw 1, but by the time he worked around to where he could get a shot, it had disappeared.

We had a good time. But, didn't get any this time.

While I am thinking about it, he didn't carry the semiauto this time. He carried the old NEF single shot 12. Said he liked it better. Shorter, lighter, easier to get through brush with it.

Both guns shoot good, so it doesn't matter to me which he carries. But, I probably just lost another gun.

Pard killed 1 red this morning. Saw quite a few, probably a dozen but all others were Grey's and they rarely sit still plus all of the leaves make it hard to get a shot with a .22

Saw 3 deer too. Nice morning to be out for sure.
