I was lucky enough to get a few hours of hunting in, today, at the Frederick Watershed. This area is my primary deer hunting area but I always see squirrels here. I took my Rock Island Armory Mig 22 again because it is just so much fun to shoot, and it's accurate as hell. About an hour into the hunt, I heard a squirrel barking about 40 yards off of the trail I typically walk. I stalked in and watched him for a while. He slowly worked his way down the trunk of the tree and onto the ground where I watched him dig for a bit before squeezing off my first shot. As luck would have it, he jumped just before I let the shot go and I hit him in the hind quarters. I had to come in close and finish him with a second shot. He was still mobile and climbed about 15 feet up a small tree, keeping the tree between him and I. This is where I came up with an idea I hadn't used before; no matter where I walked, he kept on the other side of the tree. So after a few moments of circling the tree, I grabbed a stick and tossed it on the other side of the tree. When he scurried over to my side of the tree I popped him in the head. One more squirrel for the freezer; this makes four this season already. Stay tuned for the squirrel feast!
