His plan was to grab on by the tail and knock it silly with a stick before he finished it off with his knife.
Squirrels bite! And I mean bite hard! Do not attempt to grab one unless you are wearing welder's gloves. I know this from experience.

So many leaves still. My usual late October shooting lanes are a mess.

They're saying it's supposed to get very windy later today and tonight. Hopefully this will knock down the amount of leaves still on the trees. The underbrush is still going to take some time to die off.

Was out 3 times yesterday. Only saw one deer at @50 yards and only legs. It was running away from corn harvesting. Pulled the cards on my trail cams, got a pic of some fudd on my farm! Sure he was tracking a bad shot. All dressed in camo, but no weapon.

Reminds me of my grandfather telling me when I was a kid... "Boy, if a squirrel can crack a nut like its nothing, imagine what it's going to do to your finger"

Not a deer to be seen thus far. Figured after all that rain they would be out feeding a bit.

I'm heading out about noon for the evening hunt. I want to be in a tree when the wind finally stops.

I have my daughter's Halloween recital at 1, should be back in the stand by 230. This wind isn't doing me any good right now.
