    Good start to the year. Over the weekend my little brother came to visit. We took the girls on a squirrel hunt and killed 10 squirrels total in about an hour and a half. Good crop of tree rats this year. Here's me and my girls with 9 squirrels:

    As we were skinning these 9 we saw another one. We ran it up a tree and it didn't go too high. My 8 year old says "I want to shoot that one!" We have been out shooting a few times, they kinda like it but it has been slow learning for them. It was tough getting her set up shooting up in the tree but finally she was able to get a sight picture and 3rd shot she nailed it. Jill with her first squirrel:

    Went home and got to cooking. Braised squirrel and then browned in butter/oil until crispy with mashed potatoes and gravy made from the drippings. One of my favorite meals of all time:

    I didn't get many pics but the next day we went camping to chase the elk around (end of the rut) and shoot squirrels. Had a great time, heard some bugling and watched some rut activity and ate a bunch of squirrels cooked in the dutch oven. Great weekend.

    Just Grouse so far..Or as the little one claimed "baby turkeys". The Game Dept here slaughtered over 1000 elk due to a "hoof rot" issue so my elk season was a bust, But deer starts This saturday and is looking to be a good one!

    Very nice. Are those Abert's squirrels? We have them in NM but haven't gone after them yet.

    I live in Västergötland about 3 hours north of Malmo & 50km south of Borås. I was down in Skåne a couple of weekends ago working my spaniel on a rough shoot for pheasants and partridge. We hunted on a small island about a mile of the coast. It was a test for the Labrador retriever club. The guns had a mixed bag of about 30 birds.

    We've visited a friend of my wife who lives near Borås, nice area. Sounds like you had a great day down south.
