Early withdrawal!

The deer season passed without me getting a chance to hunt on the last day. You know, family reasons...

But today I found myself with kids at school, and the wife at work.  What can I go do?

How 'bout some tree rats?  Been a long time since I've hunted just for squirrels.  They were always 'collateral'.  They would be the target when nothing else was coming out to play.

It resulted in a TREMENDOUS time!  No arrows lost-yes, I did hunt them with the bow.  I missed pulling the string, and those little critters make hard targets. What's even neater is with the bow you do a LOT of stalking.

Anyway, it absolutely cured the withdrawal symptoms of deer season passing last weekend.
