Anyone else still going out for them? I have been seeing quite a few. I shot a nice fox squirrel the other day. But I didn't get it. I hope a hawk enjoyed the free meal I left in the broken branch in this pic.


The dark spot on top of that broken branch is the squirrel

I would have needed a bull dozer to shake the tree. There were so many holes in that squirrel it would have looked like swiss cheese if it had fallen out of there.

Only thing is that lead isn't good for those hawks. We have a lot of hawks but I don't want to see any die of that kind of lead poisioning. Was just watching a show the other day about condours. About all of them at the Grand Canyon have it and they are trapped tested and treated. They eat whatever the hunters can't find.

I shot a black squirrel when I was a kid and it went
inside a hole in a tree about 15 feet up. I climbed the
tree and the squirrel was still alive just barely, I pulled
him out by the tail and dropped him. Looking back it wasnt
very smart.
