I know that I plan on putting out a trail camera that I received for Christmas and I hope to get some good pictures as well as information on how, when and where the deer are traveling. This will help me when I start placing stands in the woods later this fall.
I hope you get a chance to grab your favorite rimfire and head out into the woods. The idea of taking a seat against a nice big tree while watching and listening for the rustling of a nice big squirrel moving around should get you ready for this season and the seasons to come. Take a little time to practice, get your hunting license, and be safe from start to finish so you can have a great time hunting this fantastic small game animal. Good luck and good hunting in the great outdoors!
