Squirrel Camp 2008

This truly was the best squirrel camp we have ever had, even though Matt and Othmar did not make it again this year. Squirrels were plentiful and everyone had good hunts. Here is a pic of the hunters sitting around discussing the days hunt.
The total number of squirrels taken for the weekend was 136, yes 136. We would have gotten more but we broke all the sticks we were knocking them in the head with. Squirrels were everywhere! Here is a pic of the first mornings take of 94 and the hunters.
Now a little bragging. This was Spencers first squirrel hunt and the first time he had ever shot my 12 guage. I was amazed! He blasted squirrels right and left! The first time we went he shot five of the rascals and the next morning he got three squirrels and found an antler.
A big congratulations to him on his first hunt!
More pics to come!

136 squirrels is impressive but next time try using toothpicks for some real fun. Heck around here in Tennessee we use the squirrels as bait to draw the deer in to us. Then after deer season closes we make fishing lures out of the whole squirrel so we can release them back into the wild just before deer season again. Think that aint hard just give it a try. Glad everybody had a great time.

Looks like a great time. And squirrel hunting is definitely a great way to get the kids involved in the outdoors.

Plus, there are way too many of those things running around anyway. Time to cull the herd.
