Wifey and I headed to Ozarks this week and into next week and can’t wait for both a guided White River trout trip as well as opening of Tree Rat season. Not sure how few favorite tree rat spots fared with Ida’s destructive winds,figure numerous mast trees may have been toppled over. Nice bunch of tree rats there and hope local woods fared well not typical to shoot fox squirrels where I hunt but Folsom got plenty and Bogue Chitto may have some fox squirrels !

Blue Shamu,Yep time for tree rat population control bout here????Wifey and I went to moving sale up here in Ozarks and lady was selling all sorts of ammunition but nothing I could use. Know few guys hunting squirrels with .17 and I have used both .22 and .22 mag just hard early part of season with all dem leaves giving tree rats advantage.

Older son and grandson already got few dem tree rats I have been climbing into fine tall hard-to-climb into tree stand hoping few non -wary deer decides they wanna eat some golden nuggets. Hoping for slight cool snap to get deer moving and Wifey and I gotta budget time judiciously as we gonna be slammed busy come next Mon-Dec 7th!Love me some fine and fat tree rats hard to beat Wifey’s squirrel stew and she already promised our Cotter,AR fishing guide some of her delicious duck and andouille sausage gumbo for our next Ozarks annual get-away!
