I am sure not as many hunters are out there hunting squirrels these days as there were twenty years ago but a fun hunt it still is and the hunt is now on!
I had a lady call me a week ago telling me I had made her day. She had seen a black squirrel with an orange tail near where I had reported seeing one several weeks ago. Unfortunately her husband didn’t see it and the family therefore told her she was nuts. Then she read this column; now I guess two of us are nuts.
One of my friends accused me of seeing pink deer, etc. Keep your eyes open, you just never know what you might see.
Did you know that there is a Tree Stand Safety course that you can find online. Tree stand safety is a very important part of deer hunting that hunters need to take seriously. You can find this course at http://www.huntercourse.com/treestandsafety/ I would recommend any deer hunter check out this program and incorporate it into your hunting plans this season.
