Default i found a new love

i just went red squirrel hunting for the first time, because my friend came up to my camp and i figured it would be good shooting practice, and now im addicted to it! i never thought it would be so much fun, and such a challenge to shoot squirrels, but theyre so hrd to find, but i learned they are almost always in pine trees.

heres my first two, the third was a little too gruesome, i shot it in the head witha .22 hollow point, so i figure id save the sour stomachs( i have shot others in my backyard, but that was with a pellet gun or a bow, this was the first time ever actually hunting for them.)

I usually go quite a bit. Use it both as food and as scouting for deer to an extent.

I'm not big on eating them personally, but my wife is and my lab just loves them. You're right, squirrel hunting is quite addictive, spot and stalk is my favorite method.
