I had plans of shooting my first squirrel with my bow this past weekend, but after missing twice and having a super ninja squirrel hold a shot and run off with my arrow...I decided to try and even the playing field yesterday.
After doing some work out at the Williamsburg property I loaded up Ralph's .22 Henry lever action and hit the woods. I was in the squirrels right out of the gates and put a perfect heart/lung shot on the first tree rat I located cutting hickory nuts. After that however the action slowed as the mid-day temps climbed into the upper 80's and the tree rats hid up for the day.
I will be back later in the fall to exact my revenge!
