I been using the 410 more. The lady I been giving squirrels to knows I been shooting with shotgun. She didn’t care. I made sure she knew to look out for any pellets. I used to only use .22.

Still to hot and woods to thick to do much scouting, but this lone pine in lower part of yard is easy to see.

It's open here in NY. I saw a squirrel in my yard this morning. It reminded me that the season is open. So far I've been working too much to hunt. I'll have to see if I can change that. .410s and air rifles for me.

Still to many biting bugs to sit and hunt, but got the stand closest to the house ready. I'll have 3 stands ready by the middle of October. Have to really watch for snakes this time of year.

I don't know if we had seasons in Virginia, but on private property, invading the coops, they were varmints and legal all year. CZ455 and... The foxes and the rest took care of disposal. They could do serious damage to the feeder contents, the feeders themselves, and the physical coop structure attempting to get in.

We don't have as many here.

That picture sure looks familiar. We have a couple of tree squirrels here and they are giving our dog fits. They will tease him by entering the yard and when he shows an interest scoot thru the fence and turn around and chew him out. They are really working the pinecones like your picture shows and of course leave a big mess. Sure are noisy little buggers.

I got out with my new Henry .410 the other day. I got about 25 minutes of hunting in. It was too warm to expect to see anything, but I went out anyways. Of course I didn't see anything, but I enjoyed it.

Tree rat season starts first of next month on private land and runs through the 1st of March. I would love to harvest a few from my back yard, but they rather frown on that in a subdivision.

This one would be first on my list.

Cooler days are nice. Took the Henry 410 down and sit in my chair for a while. Still with just a short sleeve shirt, getting eat up. Lasted about 30 minutes before I had to leave. Saw a couple but no shot.
