I've seen my first ones the past few years on chipmunks I've snap-trapped. It was 0˚F this am. No chippies are out in the winter here....not as dumb as they act.

When you loose a child it changes your reasoning for a lot of the things you do. It helps keep the bond between you and your child alive.
Nice thought. Can't imagine the pain you have been through. Nice tribute. to your son.

AMEN!


I still slip in from time to time, Reb. Just not as much available time these days.
Just thinned the starling herd by one.

i hope all you squirrel hunters have survived this artic blast ok. We have one more week of squirrel hunting here in Arkansas. I am going to try to get to the woods at least one more time. After that, it is coyotes and then turkey season. I have never been a turkey hunter, but I am going to try to kill an Illinois turkey this year. With the help of my good buddy Squacks and some luck, I might just do it. Either way, as long as the good Lord allows me to get out in the woods, I am going to keep at it.
Take care,
Reb

That stinks Sarge. My outside water faucet busted. It looked like a fountain yesterday morning. A good buddy had the parts I needed and came over and capped it off for me.
I hate winter weather .

Well, it looks like...

Well, it looks like a number of folks I know are stopping by and saying "hello", so I figure I might do the same. Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe.
Went out this evening with the crossbow and sat in a ladder stand for about 3 hours, but no deer were seen. Saw plenty of birds flitting all around me, the birds are always fun to watch!!! First time I even felt like braving the low temps and the shorter winter hours aren't helping either. Well the days are getting longer and it might even get warmer too!!! So maybe I'll get another deer or two before the season ends. Wish the squirrel season ran this long.
God Bless, Frank

Barb watched what I think is a Coopers Hawk eat two of the 7 starlings I killed last week about 30 feet from the dining room window.. Pretty cool video.

This past Squirrel Season (2020 - 2021) has been the poorest Squirrel season I've seen in my 56 years of Hunting Squirrels. Late May (2020) freeze froze all the mast: No Acorns, very few Hickory Nuts, no Beech, or Walnuts.

So glad I moved out. I suppose none of them eat any kind of meat, because, you know......"it's not OK to kill".

Major bummer with frozen pipes Sarge.

Got 2 or 3 of the partial blacks coming in, and zero targeted grays. I'm leaving em for seed and see what happens this year for the heckavit.
3 red fox coming at nite and I'm hoping one of em will drag another black one in. One of em's pretty big. Snow depth has been way lower than average so hunting's been easier for the fox. No mice nor moles n such in my covered outdoor trap and all the ornamental shrubbery devouring cottontails have disappeared as no more tracks in the hood.
