    Went Squirrel Hunting and She Got a STRANGE Critter for Dec 23

    This afternoon my Lady and I went squirrel hunting , She wanted a batch of squirrel to use in stew for the freezer
    She took my 32 S&W Handie Rifle and I took the 25 Hornet ... both with my cast bullet loads

    I had my limit and she shot her limit of 6 a few min later
    So we took the short way out of the woods

    We exited about the middle of the woods on the south side , to walk a lane back to her truck
    I was talking on the phone with my brother and about 10 feet behind her when I heard her close the Handie rifle and shoot

    First thing I said was "I thought you had a limit of squirrel " ?
    But she just started laughing

    There not 20 yards in front of her was a dead Groundhog
    A BIG FAT Male groundhog , I will take young ones to eat ... but this one was well covered in a thick layer of fat , so we drove home and I got 2 snares for Coyotes


    Sure we kill groundhogs in that area every year
    Butttt It is December 23
    Yea it was about 55 degrees this afternoon
    But there is still some snow from last week in some shaded areas not far away

    I guess I need to watch out more for the odd critters

    Yea, thou I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
    And I carry a SIG

    If his name was Phil and he was from Punxsutawney, ops, no more weather reports.
    Whatever!
