    My wife used to love to watch the furry little fiends scamper along the top of the wood fence. They were so cute! Until they made entry into the attic through the soffit. Now, she ain't so crazy about them.

    I cant believe I haven't thought of that. Coasting along in a canoe beats the hell out of stomping through the forest, or with my luck, finding myself in the middle of another field of stinging nettles.
    Haha well that doesn't sound fun at all. I'm a sucker for a miserable time, I may have to try my luck. is wearing crazy expensive camo and having a bunch of calls a requirement for shooting turkeys, or can it be done with less?

    Be aware that fresh kills will sink like a rock if they fall in the water.

    At least in central OK, I cant think of a stream or creek that I have seen in the past few years that you couldn't just step out of the canoe and be more than knee deep.

    I spent a good while looking for one that fell in about 6-8 inches of running water. It had washed up against a limb about the same diameter. :D

    Soaking wet squirrels are a really drab color.

    I could probably use the airgun from a boat back in the little river. But there are some 20+ foot holes in there so I would not get out of the boat unless I was going to shore LOL. It would be hard to get a clean shot though from water though.

    ALSO, why are they pain to skin? I've never done it but I have watched a few vids that make it look easy?

    Never thought about skinnin' being a problem. From the time I was around 8, I'd hold 'em and Dad did the knife work. Goes pretty fast with two people.

    Main thing is to keep hair off the meat.
