Technician1, no doubt something came back and scooped up that Hawks squirrel. There wasn't a trace the next morning - nothing goes to waste.

It was a wet, warm, overcast and an active morning. I saw more active squirrels than ever before, but was only able to line up one safe shot before my clock ran out. Eika is pointing them out to me very well. But she is also getting to far away from me for me to to take advantage of them while they are focusing and barking at her. While I'm still 75 to 50 yards off, I can see the squirrels making their way up into the canopy. Once they get up into that high canopy they are tough for me to find. More work to do on Eika's "easy" training.

Another off hand shot, 70+ degree up angle and later ranged to 21.8 yards, line of sight.

I always glass those big Vs, in the center of this picture, in the trees and it paid again. In this light there would be no other way for me to see him with the naked eye.


Eika takes off after the shot like a sprinter hearing the starters pistol and brings back the prize!


Still using the Mossberg 640K loaded with CCI JHP MAXI-MAGS in 40g. It's been tough to make time to get the range and sight the Remington 552s new scope in. Here's Eika, already eye balling another one.
