Boy oh boy oh boy! How I love that FIRST day! The old tube fed Mossberg .22,(made in 1947) snacks, coffee, and the troubles of mankind are forgotten for a day. It is weird, but I can't seem to go hunting unless I have an old laundry bag pin to hook the squirrel onto, as important as carrying my knife. Tradition! Good luck folks and enjoy!
yep, i like the first day of squirrel as much or more than the first day of deer. me and my boys make a day of it on the SF we hunt. take the camp cooking gear and do a tailgate lunch of soup and sandwiches. then a little nap for a couple hours and back out for the rest of the day. its great.
my 8 year old is ITCHING to get out. can't hardly wait til saturday. Got a new toy for plinking the close ones too, picked up that colt buntline - man o man is that thing a little tack driver! and with that used on the close ones, i won't blow them up like i do with the 22mag

Just bought a new savage .22 with a nice little Tasco 4x on it. Have been having fun getting it all nice and sighted in. I feel like a kid with all my stuff laid out waiting for Saturday to get here. Shoot be a great day, about 60 degrees or so. I can't wait.
forecast for my area is 20 MPH winds and 60 degrees. not ideal in my experience. i would prefer a hard rain friday night and then a cool morning on saturday. but ya can't always get what ya want i guess. i'll be carrying my grandpaps mod 12 with my s&w 22 in my pocket. i doubt i'll do any shooting but you never know. one boy will have my ruger 77/22 and the other boy hasn't made his mind up yet between the 870LW 20 gauge, 20 double or 870 20 youth. i need to buy another 22 rifle or two.
Now that you said that about the rain Friday, I just looked at the forecast at it says 60% chance of rain Friday followed by no rain (well 10% chance) on Saturday. It should be cool and dry all day with the highs hitting just under 60.
