Got a few more duck hunts left. I'lll hibernate through february and focus on school for a bit, and before too long it will be turkey season again.

I'm lucky in that I can go after coyotes and hogs when ever I get the itch

Time to go shoot some coyotes

All the foliage is gone and they are a lot less protected than they usually are.

First have to clear all our trails since a Christmas day freezing rain then snowstorm all but obliterated our trails. Hard to believe but we got 1 inch of freezing rain followed by 10" of snow on Christmas day here in central Arkansas! Was out of power 6 days.
Anyways then it's squirrels, crows and coyotes.
Anyone else out there feel the need for revenge against the squirrels for making me turn around in the deer stand thousands of times upon hearing the leaves rusle? They eat good too! Squirrel and dumplings for me!

Pigs and yotes, if the farmer trusts you, you can do it for free.

In the area I'm stuck in (for now) Deer are pretty much the only thing to hunt (or worth hunting) around here. I pretty much just trail ride and fish till fall.

And it starts

Well, I lived up to my original post and got out on the ice. Sorry about the crappy cell pic but, that is a 13 1/2" Crappie and the other is a 9" Bluegill. My neighbor caught a 10" gill on a minnow and we definitely caught enough to stink up a frying pan. For any fellow Michigan forum members that fish, and you'll appreciate this, I'll tell you exactly where we caught the fish. We were on Lake Nunya Bidness in Joemama county.........it's a lesser known county in Michigan.

Nice fish 284, hope they ate well.

I hunt waterfowl until the end of January, then turn my efforts to rifle load development and shooting. That usually last until the 100 degree heat shows up!

I've gotten the itch to turkey hunt again, personally. I gave it up a few years ago but I kept my gear and I'm raring to give it another go. I might even go pattern the shotgun tomorrow since it's supposed to be a pretty day.

I may see if I can assassinate a few coyotes during the next month or two as well.

I'll be hunting what rickyrick is hunting - pigs and coyotes. The 260 and 270 go into the safe and the 220 Swift comes into the daylight. I live on my own little ranch and I never really quit hunting something unless it's too hot to sit in the blind.

'Yotes, squirrels and rabbits.

If a group of pigs moves in I'll go after them.

No more playing with Bambi? Lotsa folks hang out at the gun store and swap stories of they saw and did and what their buddies saw and did.

By the end of February or thereabouts, most racks grew more points and field-dressed weights gained a goodly amount. (Of course, some folks were foolish enough to take pictures, and must of necessity stay with the truth. Give them a moment of sympathetic silence.) Always remember this truism: The first liar doesn't stand a chance.

Yotes are one I plan to target and might just have a few plots of private land lined up... Same for the feral cats I will get to use the ol' winchester auto loader on...

Hogs with dogs and night time hog gunnin' is what me and wifey will try to do together this summer too...

Small game on occasion. This time of year I tend to devote to pulling monster pike and burbot through the ice and radar runs on the sled.
