Dude, if you want Black Skwerls, come visit me here at Kent State... a long time ago, a professor was doing research on em and brought in some trapped blackies from Canada. When he was finished with his study, he released them on the grounds. Now thanks to him, Portage County has a HUGE population of them and they are constantly spreading out further.

I had three guys I graduated with that went to Kent. That was the first time I saw a black squirrel. I wasn't sure if it was a squirrel or a kitten.

I guess they are protected too.

Not sure how many I'm up to so far, but I added three more tonight.

I picked up this Ithica for $100 even with a slug barrel. I carried it last year in Coshocton during gun season but never got a shot. It shoots cheap Federals' pretty good out to 80 yrds.

I swapped the barrels tonight and grabbed some #6's and got these three. I did miss a rabbit, seen three more, and lots more squirrels. On the way in I had a big doe and some fawns at 30 yrds standing like targets. Too bad it wasn't Monday!

Finally got to try the gambrel out. This is the first time since I started bunting squirrels when I was a kid that they weren't covered with fur after cleaning them. First squirrel got with the first shot but the next played with me for about fifteen minutes before I connected on the fourth shot lol.IMG_20160114_114920799_HDR.jpg
