Took another one of my walks in the woods and found the nut trees to be heavy with mast. It may make the deer hunting a little harder but the squirrel hunting sure has been fun.
Small game hunting was how I got my start in the late 1970’s. Most youngsters of my generation grew up chasing birds and small game as the staple hunting opportunity. Back then deer hunting success was based on if you saw a deer, not necessarily if you killed one. Yes here in Tennessee we still kill our food and harvest our crops.
