Lung shot. That's why this one didn't get away.
This squirrel had an amazing tail.
Some of the areas are incredibly nut rich, and I'm guessing that's why there are so many squirrels this season. If this keeps up, this should be a great Fall.
Before I end this let me mention that I passed a group of birders on the path, which included very small children. I stopped and explained to the people that it was hunting season and they should be careful since they weren't wearing blaze. They didn't have a clue and said it wasn't posted. The area is clearly posted as a WMA and a hunting area. It's up to the individual to go the the state website to educate oneself on the hunting seasons. This isn't the first time I've come across this. I'd like to see the law changed requiring everyone to wear blaze, or better yet, make it illegal to enter the WMA's without a hunting license.
Season Squirrel Count: 4
