2011 - 2012 Squirrel Season Closeout...

All of my life I have enjoyed winter.  I love the lack of bugs and the snow and the cold air.  There's just something about it.  This year though... not so much winter in winter.  Nearly every year I get out and hunt at least once in the last few days of season.  Just a few years ago this hunt was cold enough to wear my coat and fleece and long johns.  Yesterday, I wore a t-shirt and hoodie and was just fine.

A blue sky and a south wind just makes thing so much easier.  As I gain a little more lack of youth, these things seems to help a lot. 

I had my new girl out with me too...  She's from the Czech Republic and she has some really nice lines.  I do love those Manlicher-style rifle stocks.  :)
As perfect days go, it was hard to beet.  There wasn't much  moving and I figured what was should probably catch a pass until next season.  All I shot all day were pictures.  I' just going to put a few in here and call it a day.  The kiddos are going nuts to get outside or something...

On a side note here... I did discover that the camera will do both 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios.  16:9 is was cooler so I switched with this pic.
and one more shot of the new girl, just because I like her.  :)
