In the woods again!

Postby LadyHawk » Fri Sep 13, 2013 2:07 pm

I woke today to a North wind and 58 degrees. What a change from the record breaking 100's we have been dealing with. My day was set aside to wait on a truck due to deliver some material for my business. Had to put hunting out of my head the best I could. Then...... my truck pulled in at 8 AM! I was in the woods by 9 ;)
I have to be careful with my shots due to ravines and neighbor's homes on hills, so the squirrels that answer my call from above have to be given a pass. I was able to get 4 shots off. Only one met it's mark. Wow hitting a squirrel's little head is 100% harder than hitting a deer behind the leg!
This was my first shot. Taken at 30 yards. Missed the head and hit the neck. 40 grains of 3f with a patched round ball out of my .36 Bill Large barrel.
Great to be back in the woods again!!!!!!!!!

Thanks GW. My life gets real crazy in the summer months. Nice to be back!
So I found this in the creek bed while hunting today. Seems to be sandstone. Any clues?

Nice fox squirrel, I try to avoid killing those because I don't like to eat them. I love grey squirrel fried or made into dumplings. As for the object in the second picture it is obviously not made by nature. I am going to hazard a guess and say it is the end, side or bottom from some hollow, poured ceramic vessel that was fired but left unglazed so it has weathered to a "stone-like" texture. I used to pour and fire ceramics about a million years ago and that "lumpy" uneven area near the point looks like where once the mould was drained and turned back upright some clay slip dripped back onto that area and hardened. Then again, it could be something else entirely. Let's see what other people think.

Nice shooting there LadyHawk!

Wish I was out in the woods, a bad day in the woods beats a boring day at home anyday in my book ;)
