    Happy New Year To Ya'll Well, my Deer season Wasnt good, But My Squirrel season is Great sofar. already have 61 in the Bag. I Started alitte sooner then i normaly Do. I Never hunt squirrel durning deer season, but The Deer are few on Bunter-falls gameland so i forfited deer season early ive been hunting squirrel hard on Butner-falls only, in Durham co. and ive had very good results. I Average about 5 everyday. My Goal is 200+ on Bunter-falls Jordan, Lee, Chatem, Harris And Whitehall Plantation. I Think i can make that Happen. So When ya'll Can, come out and squirrel Hunt. Dont let Me Have all The Fun. Goodluck!! And Be Safe, and bring Your Kids.Unlike deer, theres enough squirrels for everyone.!!

    HIGH POWER Air Rifle
    @ Gt I Was Hunting with a gamo high power air Rifle, But I Gave It Away To A Friend of Mine to Take squirrel out of His Yard. My .22 Is Shot, Barrel is Pitted, going to get another one soon, may get a .17hmr also. I Miss with the shotgun, lol more then i care to admit. i like getting the squirrels up close and in my face. Its All about the recovery time. Sometimes they come right back out, and sometimes they dont come out at all, it al depends on where im at. Goodluck squirrel hunting!! But Warning, they become addictive after awhile lol.
