Talking Opening day video

We had a fun first morning out with our rifles and the camera. We shot 3 and got 2 of them on tape. CLICK for the link. It's awful quality because we have a slow upload speed and a full quality upload would take 2 days

We saw several this morning. They aren't cutting in our woods yet, but the hickory nuts are thick and things should pick up soon.

good job on the video..need to take the camera man to the range, so he'll quit jumpin when ya shoot lol
yall fry em up yet..wonderin what the recipe would be.
my dad worked for the city of dallas, and he would bring baby squirrels home when i was 5 and put em in a 20-15 closed cage, and they would hide in his beard, and he would put em in his pocket and they would just hang out lol
so i never ate one. funny people would eat tree rats but not cats, go figure.
i hear its good eatin.

I'm the first guy, and I was the cameraman on the second 'jumpy' shot. We usually take a tripod, but we were a little more interested in squirrel meat than a video this morning That little camcorder is awfully hard to hold still. I don't think my wife would let me buy one of the big pro models hehe

I'm in Bridgeport, Il. It's across from Vincennes Indiana about 10 miles. And yeah, the skeeters are thick. I wore my bug suit upper and I don't know if I would have made it without!
