November Photo Orgy / Squirrel Strikeout

I sneaked the camera out today... the new one. Mrs. Hunter didn't know. I love using the silly thing. It is truly a step or 70 up my cell camera. (What I have used all along here because cameras are a big pain to haul in and out in one piece...) I am pretty darned pumped to have had a day of photog. 120 pictures all together... that's what I snapped. 120... and so begins the tale for today.

It turns out when you spend the day snapping photos, you will not be able to hunt worth a sh!t. I saw almost nothing and none of the evil tree-dwelling critters I was after in the first place.

On the flip side of that, I got some good pictures of the place I love. I am feeling like I am finally able to gather some representative images. Nothing I have done to this point does it justice. I think today's trip may just have a start on it.

The last bits of foliage were left up where the wind has not yet taken its toll. Mostly it was a cold gray day but every once in a while the sun would poke out and the sky would turn this amazing blue and I would just gorge on the lens. I need to get some better discipline around it or I may never hunt successfully again.... Oh well...

Anyhow, have a look at the rest of these. I have, literally, about a hundred more but these were the better ones I thought. I am hopeful to get to the west side of the place in a week or two and get some more shots. Enjoy.




Oh yeah... One last thing here. The guys at rimfirecentral.com are hosting the 2nd annual Green Mountain Barrels photo contest and, go figure, my favorite squirrely rifle has a Green Mountain barrel and is, therefore, eligible.

I've decided to spare us all here and only post one of the pics I took of this one today. I have about a hundred of these too... Surely is a dangerous mix for me. Guns, hunting, and pictures of guns and hunting... The wife is lucky I even came home. I could still be out there, looking for another shot. (either kind)
