Decided to take my SG out for some squirrel hunting for a couple hours this morning - season's almost over, gotta get it in while I can.

 

Saw a squirrel 15 minutes before shooting time.  Didn't see another squirrel until 5 minutes before I had to leave. Squirrel was doing his best ninja moves in and out of bushes and trees - never gave me a shot.

 

Didn't see a squirrel between those times - but of course, I saw a train of 8 deer walk by single-file about 100 yards out.  :whatever:

 

Can't believe that large of a deer herd survived this month and a half of unlimited shotgun season, but they did. I think they stuck close to the houses that are nearby. Anyway, good sign for next fall at least.

They are all herded up right now so that 8 deer is probably all that is in the remote area. They travel together during winter months to reduce wasting energy. That's why t is always harder to hunt them in the winter because they aren't always split up, so you see a lot less.

I cant believe there are that many deer left after 6 months of bow season

You see allot less in less you put out 100 lbs of bait.They are very easy to bait when there is snow on the ground for a few days.

Thats alright John, I was pred hunting a couple weeks ago in a closed deer zone and had a beautiful 10 pt walk to 15 yards before he saw me.

Lol that's why I shoot them off my bird feeder. Everytime I go in woods where I deer hunt I have the buck I have been chasing within 40 yards.
Plus on a positive I keep them from eating my peaches, my dog from barking at them and I get a pot of banging gumbo.

Sounds like a good day in the woods even if there wasnt a harvest.
