They're certainly fun to hunt.

Hairballs to skin though... yea, I've seen those slick vids on skinning stepping on hind legs after a slit, but I managed to pull off a hing quarter on one.I think winter PA squirrels had tougher hide...

Well,I'm sorry to anyone following this thread,but that's going to be the end of the trail for me this season as I am writing you from sunny sandy Kuwait.

I thought I had more time to do some hunts and update,but got cut short as my new job started a lot earlier than expected.

When I return we'll pick up in whatever year that may be. :thumbs: :camp: :wavey:
