Sometimes squirrel hunting can be more about staying awake than stalking. Yesterday, I brought Debbie along with me to hunt squirrels at the Patuxent River State Park. I carried my Ruger Mark III pistol and she used my Winchester '94; both are .22s. We didn't see anything, perhaps because it was so chilly and windy but we enjoyed sitting out in the woods talking and joking. We shot a few cans we found laying around and called it a day after only a couple of hours. At one point, I was so comfortable, I nearly fell asleep. This wouldn't be the first time this has happened. I've fallen asleep in the woods quite a few times. I think its because the forest is the most soothing and peaceful place I can imagine. The constant rustle of leaves, warm sunshine and contemplation just put me right out.
