Completed the "Squirrel Slam"
« on: October 28, 2012, 09:22:00 AM »
It's been a tough quest to take all three color phases of squirrel here in Michigan.
 Last night I took the third color phase and one of the rarest in my woods, the black squirrel.  We have tons of the red or "fox" and lots of grays but finding a black phase is far and few.
 If I did find one it either busted me before I got close enough or I missed.   :D   Last night I was dead on.   :cool:

   
Just one more step.....please!

Congrats on a beautiful trophy.

Northern PA is FULL of the black ones. Hunting turkeys this weekend in Centre county, we saw at least 6 different ones between 10 guys. I guess that is not a lot compared to the greys but still a lot for a small area. I shot one last year while squirrel hunting with the 22 and still have the hide in my freezer.

You worked to hard and paid a lot of money for that new bow. Why would you trust protecting it to anything less than Thunderbird Epoxy!!!

Nice trophy!
An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward.So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it's going to launch you into something great.
