Still no deer...

I saw an amazing amount of squirrels that morning. They were everywhere! One squirrel even started climbing down the tree I was sitting against. He got within 10 feet of the ground before he saw a strange lump sitting at the base of the tree. This "lump" was very displeasing to him and he heaped a lot of verbal abuse on me before I finally got tired of it and made a sharp sound with my mouth. When he heard that, he apparently remember that if you are going to pick a fight, it should NOT be with someone many times your size. So he turned tail and ran away as fast as he could go.

As I looked for deer and watched squirrels run up and down the trees, I suddenly got the feeling that I was being watched by unfriendly eyes. My eyes narrowed as I gripped my gun tighter and slowly scanned the woods looking for who it was that was watching me....

Ah ha! I was right. There was somebody watching me.

Just remember everyone, that whenever you are in the woods, there's almost always something watching you.

What on earth is that thing?? IT actually looks like a woodchuck or something, but I wasn't aware that such animals climbed trees!

Guns and Cameras; You love to 'shoot' things, don't you!

I'm a gun fanatic myself. My Dad does a lot of tactical pistol and rifle instruction. He is a certified instructor... so am I, but he's the one with the experience.


Love the photography on your blog, guys. Keep it up!

Yes, it actually is a squirrel. A very displeased one, to be sure... but still very much a squirrel.

@John Moore
Yes, we do love to shoot things! You know what is really fun? Taking pictures of shoot guns. You know, "shooting shooting"? :-)
