Funny that you mentioned that.  I did not have the pellet gun tonight (blind was too small for 2 guns) but I did  see the only black squirrel that I have ever seen in WMU 9F, and a couple of greys.  It was another deerless sit however, as has been the case every time since the first half hour of opening day.   The good news is that I still have an either/or and an antlerless tag for the southern tier and if the weather is decent, I will try and get down to my buddies camp for the following long weekend with my ML.  I was able to free up the firing pin on that with some CLP. so I should be good to go.   They have lots of standing corn down there that is infested with does.  Hopefully I will end up with a button buck or two.

Well got skunked . I was on the outside of all the fun. They did a big drive and the parking spot next  to me had 6 guys . And they did a good job of not letting any deer come over to me .:( oh well muzzleloader  still so I still have time to get it done. But it's not looking good.

Started the day with 18 degrees and a 12 degree windchill. Spent most of the day in the woods just coming home to shed some clothes after it warmed up to 40. Howling winds all day 20-40 mph. Sad to see it end but glad it is over. Hear the last shot a 5:10 on the way out :angry:.  I might try to get out with the bow if we get some decent weather but it doesn't sound to good at the present time and I need a break for a couple of days.

Sitting back and reading the bible with some crown royal. Congratulations  to all of those that were able to fill some tags this year.

 I did come across something interesting today.

 Sunrise, Sunset, and todays find:

Ended up doing drives all the way until last light. 7 of us stuck it out and worked hard pushing, tracking setting up and doing it all over again. In the end as a group we took 3 doe all nice sizes. I covered 8 miles of ground through crunchy morning snow, ice,mud, water you name it I went through it today.

Was the perfect way to end the season being a part of 3 deer with some really great fellow hunters.

There was a black squirrel at Clarence Center and Salt for a long time, haven’t seen him in a while though

I found myself in the middle of an unexpected drive yesterday, I had the hammer back twice but couldn’t stop either deer for a shot with the ML. I saw those guys parked a block over they killed a nice ten, the buck I had a chance at, and two does

Punched a tag in the final hour tonight. This is my first doe ever and shot with my grandfathers rifle that hadn't killed a deer in nearly 50 years. A nice end to a challenging rifle season. 26377fc5ca7ed0371f69948cba3acc7a.jpg

There was a lot of shooting going on in 4F this afternoon. I'm not sure if the temperature change got them on their feet or hunters were just doing a final push. I heard more shots today than opening day.

Red squirrel almost climbed down pine I’m in onto shoulder and was infiltrated by chickadees.  Nice morning out but yet to hear a single shot let alone anybody who can reload and shoot a ml 3x in 18 seconds

Looks like it was a good end of gun season for a lot of you - way to go! I had a contact fall out about 345 and had to hunt the last hour with a make shaft eye patch lol. Fortunately not my primary eye, but definitely not the best combination with my choice to sit on a real thick creek bed. This week looks really good with a cold front coming in late Tuesday night. One of the farmers I deal with opened up ~1k additional acres to me to hunt for black powder so I have some serious speed scouting to do over the next few days. I don’t think it’s been hunted much if at all so really hoping to find some good sign and get on some new bucks. Most of it is a ways off the road and pretty well hidden so going to call in some favors and get a quad since I sold mine

well saturday night the stomach started acting funny, and although nothing came up, I was down for the count for the last day of rifle. Bummed is an understatement. Now to get the CVA ready for a few sits before the season ends.

that's awesome for him, congrats! There's always a small part of me that feels for the deer taken on the last day. Like damn, you were this close buddy haha
