What kind of hunting do you do?
What is in season in your area?

Here in Indiana it is squirrel season & urban deer season(bow).
Regular deer bow season starts Oct.1, I would have been out scouting but we had a heavy rain storm come through & couldn't get out.
Urban is bow only hunting in the outlying county just outside the major city's to help with deer reduction. I would be hunting urban if I could find someone with land in the county.:confused:
I will be out Oct. 1, I have my spot already picked out.

Getting ready to hunt a few pigs this weekend. Open season here on them. I just love the smell of fresh BACON in the morning. Had bait out all week so it should be a good weekend for them.

Also getting ready for bow season for deer, starts Oct. 15 to January 31st. Gun season starts November 17th to January 31st. We only get to kill 3 bucks but we can kill a doe a day the entire season.

So much for the BACON SHORTAGE that everyone is talking about.

A DOE A DAY...........sounds like hunter heaven!

Pig hunting has exploded a couple of hours south of me.

I have family members who have not bought pork now in a couple of year due to it. Of course they have to stay up late and hunt the things to keep them from tearing up their property but still they get wild pork so it seems like it works out to me.

Sorry...don't eat the tree rats !

They are a real nuisance here in PA...tearing up the wood eves and facia boards on my home.

And the chipmunks borrow into everything...just like field mice...so, I thin the herd almost every day.

I think the jack-o-lope's were put on the endangered species list a few years ago, after I got mine of course

Have you ever eaten them?

I understand they are a nuisance but they are also some fine eating.

Lucky you. I've been hunting them for decades and still have not bagged one.

I am in Texas. The hogs down here are tearing up the landscape so every one has the ability to hunt.

I may take my family up on the offer to go hunting once my son gets a little older.
Thank goodness we don't have them up here YET!
But I have been told they are fun to shoot, & I love bacon, I may need to take a vacation to Texas.

As for the squirrels a local outdoors TV show had a recipe they did on the show. I tried it & it turned out fairly good, so here is that clip from the show.
