I thought maybe this might help the squirrel hunters get fired up! :D

Jerry, I know what you mean. I was 20 feet up a tree in a climbing stand when this critter spied me. What a racket he made. Scared me just a little when he got in the tree next to me. I thought I might have to hit him with the bow. The headlines kept flashing through my mind, "Bowhunter attacted by rabid squirrel". :lol:

I took that photo with my first digital camera back in 2001. It's amazing how far digital cameras have come since then.

Two weeks from Today for me ... We all gather at the camp , shoot some squirrels, then have a big supper , some fried , some dumplined, some go in the freezer for later on in the season. Eat em about once a week that way all thru huntin season. Hard to beat them dumplined squirrels. Pressure cook em till the meat falls off the bone, which we do, then the dumplin man takes over and brings it all together and I just spoon it in a bowl after bowl after bowl ... till I can't spoon no more ! :D

Couple of seasons ago I was in one of my cousins tree stands over in Arkansas. Had a bunch of fox squirrels that were really young all over the tree with me. They were crawling all over the stand. I finally got down out of the stand after one of them perched on my shoulder and started looking at my nose like it was a nice soft hickory nut. I know what those little rascals eat for a living and every part of my anatomy is softer.

I've have had em come close but not that close .... what a unique experience! I might have been
tempted to put one or two in my pocket for pets.

My skwerill rifle this year is a CVA 32 caliber caplock. At 30-35 yards range I still can pop a quarter with a prb. I already have a couple of hunts lined up with a local hunter that has a couple of great tree dogs.

My dad is 75. He has the scar from a "pet" squirrel he had when he was 7 or 8 today. He was playing with it and the squirrel got tired of playing and started into it's house. Pop grabbed it by the tail. It turned around and bit through thumbnail, thumb, and the bone. He said the squirrel was a couple weeks old.

I would not put any in my pocket unless it was before they were old enought to have their eyes open.

That being said, it WAS really cool!! Little rascals had no idea I was not part of the tree.

Sitting high in a tall slick pine forest watching them 'flying squirrels'
soar above the forest understory is way too cool also. Come to think of
it, that's the only time i've ever seen the soaring kind. First time I noticed
the lil booger was like ... 'What the heck was that!' :D

I really hate to post this on a family oriented site but here goes
The weekend of Nov 13 14 and 15 I will go to North Alabama for a primitive
skweril hunt / party. This will be hosted by Steven and Lana that were the local party's in the "Wife Swap" show
Steven prefers everyone to use a flintlock smoothbore or rifle but he said I could use my 32 cal caplock rifle Hames If I wanted to be a "Nipple Sucker"
I do have "BraveHeart" my 12 gauge flintlock shotgun and LongShanks my 54 cal flintlock if needed
We are there to enjoy the sport and celebrate a LONG weekend of filming the TV show
Many stories will be told, a few good hunts will happen, a lot of good food and drink will be consumed as well as the friendship that can only be acquired around a blazing fire
I wish all could attend and view a simpler way of life for a few hours

Oupa, die bobaas jagter.

Hope you do well on that hunt JB. :thumbsup:
I'd given it some thought of getting a percussion lock for my little .40 just to use up all these percussion caps I've got here at the house.

Just for fun

On this trip there will be NO CAMERAS or Recording devices of any kind allowed not even a pencil and paper are allowed.
Things that happen at a rondy are history if it is photographed, recorded or written down. If there are only memories then it is a legend.
Like my lapdancer incident, or the King Willie event, or the reverend O'Burgess preaching on the starving Ethiopians. all are legend
